I was paid N5000 for movie roles – Kenneth Aguba narrates
Once homeless Nollywood actor, Kenneth Aguba has narrated how he was paid the sum of N5,000 for a movie role.
Nollywood actor, in a recent video, narrated the sad experience he had at the hands of some of the filmmakers he had worked with.
According to the 49-year-old actor, he started his acting career in 2003 and has been given movie roles in Calabar and Owerri, however, he was most times underpaid or ‘they ate his money’.
He stated that many filmmakers were happy giving him N5,000 for a movie role.
He said;“I’ve acted in so many movies between Calabar and Owerri. I’ve acted everywhere and I started in 2003. They just suffered me, they can’t pay me. I remember acting in Jos, he carried my money and ask me to come back to Jos to collect my money.
“How can? How much will I spend on the journey before I reach Jos? He kept that one. Many times it happened, they ate my money. They didn’t pay me well. They gave me N5000, they are happy. They think they are paying me,”.
This is coming after the General Overseer of Omega Power Ministry, OPM, Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere came to the aid of the former homeless actor.
On July 8, Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere offered to sponsor the marriage of Kenneth Jideofor, better known as Kenneth Aguba, to any interested lady.
The clergyman on Tuesday, also gifted the actor, a home in Port Harcourt after the story of his homelessness went viral last Monday.
