Is It True That Nigerian Nollywood Actors Make More Money Than Actresses?
This claim is unproven; in fact, from all indications, it is the other way round. The richest and most popular Nollywood artistes today are the actresses, pioneered by the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Mercy Johnson, Funke Akindele and the likes.
The richest actor in Nigeria, according to credible sources, is Desmond Elliot, with a net worth of about. However, his political career in the past four years, has earned him more money than his 15+ acting career.
In a nutshell, the actresses take the lead in, not only prominence, but also in wealth (movie earnings).
