Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu claims the recent breed of actresses joined the industry to chase wealthy married men.

He said this in a post on his Instagram page on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

According to him, gone are the days where Nollywood was highly respected around the world, with actresses such as Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde among others, who raised the bar of Nollywood with their talent and passion.

However, the new actresses who joined the industry lacks passion for the job.

He captioned the post;

During the time of Genevieve Nnaji, Aunty Omotola, Rita Dominic, sister Kate, sister Ini Edo just to mention but a few, #nollywood was RESPECTED all over the #world because of the standard and meritocracy of our movies, but with the influx of the so called NEW nollywood actresses, mediocrity is now the order of the day, it is like they pack the whole Allen Avenue and Pekas ambassadors into our industry, the way dem dey look for wealthy #MARRIED men with the speed of light is preposterously worrisome to say the least, we use better #technology and spend bigger financially on movies but the quality of acting and professionalism has dropped drastically.
