Nollywood actress, Victoria Inyama, who sat for a chat with Saturday Beats, talked about things she feels make the profession look embarrassing compared to how it was when she started her career.

Victoria Inyama who made her movie debut with a soap opera titled Ripples between 1998/1999; after she was discovered by Alex Usifo who invited her over for an audition, said;

“My days in the industry were lovely; there was so much love; there was so much hard work. People wanted to act for acting sake, they didn’t want to act because of money. We were competing with who could cry the most, memorise long lines the most, who was the saddest character and stuffs like that unlike now that it is all about unnecessary competition like cars and houses. Back then, it was just innocent and genuine competition. It wasn’t for the fame but integrity.

“The truth is, these days it is an embarrassment being called an actress. You want to be called something else because there is no respect for that name anymore. Sometimes, I can’t wait to qualify as a psychologist so that when you think of Victoria Inyama, it will be in another light. Those in the industry now are doing a lot of things that shouldn’t be done in 2018. It is not just one particular thing that they should stop doing; from the picture, story line, artistes and costumes, some of them are just weird and out of place. Once I see certain names in the production, I don’t even bother,” she said.

How true are her words? Do you think Filmmaking these days is all about the fame? Are actresses embarrased to be identified as one in the Nollywood industry?
