Segun Arinze has criticized the new set of Nollywood actors, terming them as pretentious and lacking discipline.
The veteran actor commented about this in an interview with Hip TV News, where he added that the new entries only show proficiency in phonetics.
“Today’s set of Nollywood actors are not grounded. What they know how to do is to speak phonetics.
“Most of these guys are pretentious. They are only interested in who has the highest number of likes or followers on their social media platforms.
“Most of them are not even disciplined and they lack the knowledge; they only want to be popular,”
“I am sorry to say this but the truth is that today’s crop of Nollywood actors are not grounded.
Talent is not the only thing you need; you also have to be grounded.”
The A-list actor began his career in Ilorin, Kwara State, and has featured in a high number of movies.
Some of these include “Silent Night”, “Across the Niger”, “Family on Fire” and “Black Arrow”. The latter earned him the alter ego of the same name.
