with Tofarati talks about his marriage and why he can never marry any one else and how he endures to prevail with the low money been paid to Yoruba Actors .
It is generally believed that the pay in the Yoruba movie industry is poor. How do you intend to deal with this since you want to improve actors’ welfare?
It is the bargaining power of individuals that determines what they are paid. If you invite Odunlade Adekola for a job, he would tell you how much he wants to be paid; and the person would pay if he can afford it. If you call me for a job, I would also state my fees. However, we want to introduce a minimum wage in the industry. There is no maximum limit but there should be minimum pay in the industry for anybody that acts in a movie, even cameo roles.
Some people also insinuate that many ladies in the industry are glorified prostitutes. How do you intend to address this issue?
Anybody that says actresses are involved in prostitution should provide proof. We all have our personal lives to live and I cannot monitor what anybody does in their private moments. We can only educate ourselves through lectures and seminars on how to manage stardom. I cannot follow anybody home to tell them how to lead their lives. Everybody has a right to freedom but there should be a limit to all things. Meanwhile, there is immorality in all professions; not just in the movie industry. I don’t know any prostitute among us; you can mention the ones you know.#
