Veteran Nigerian actress, Ayo Adesanya has revealed that contrary to some notions that thespians are rich, they only have fame but not money.

She stated that though the film industry is big and looks glamourous, the actors do not make enough money from their craft. However, she added that it is up to the actor to know how to convert fame into money.

Speaking during an interview on the ‘Memoir of a Naija Girl’ podcast, Adesanya said, “Many people have the notion that because Nollywood is big, practitioners are well paid.

“People assume that a celeb’s life is all rosy and lively. However, everything boils down to the individual and how they want to live their lives so that it doesn’t become lonely and boring.”
