Deyemi Okanlawon: Many of My Colleagues Are Broke
Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon has affirmed that a lot of his colleagues in the entertainment industry are broke.
He stated this via his verified Twitter account on Tuesday while replying to a fan who wondered if fame does not bring money.
Deyemi first talked about goals actors set for themselves and noted that instead of them to be aiming to be the most featured or appear in the highest grossing films, they should aim to be the highest earning performers.
He tweeted; ”Not every time aim for HIGHEST GROSSING or HIGHEST FEATURED… more often reach for HIGHEST EARNING! #alist”
In reaction, a tweep @Tallbertie asked; I thought the fame brings the bag??
The movie star then said that a lot of famous people are broke and fame is just a byproduct which does not guarantee wealth.
Deyemi explained that a combination of raw talent, strategic work and impeccable work ethic are what ensure that an actor gets rich.
He said; ”There are lots of famous broke ppl… fame is a byproduct, it’s the talent and the grind (work strategy and work ethic) that brings the bag.”
