Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, has stated the reason for him accepting a movie role.
In an interview, Richard Mofe Damijo stated that his decision to accept or reject a movie role was based on a fat wallet.
He stated that he put 35 years into this work and business therefore it would be nice for him to get a good amount of money for it.
Pointing out that he won’t just use the money carelessly, but he still has to pay bills, and pay school fees in dollars.
He has helped people he considered family and did not have the kind of money he expects in the past with no charges to help them with their movies.
He states that people in the industry know that if the story is good then he does not have a problem with doing it free of charge.
The 59-year-old also revealed that from 2017, he hadn’t done close to 100 movies in his entire 36-year-career.
He stated that he did not jump on every bandwidth on every film that came his way.
He has always tried to be very selective about the kind of films he did.
He feels very blessed that his work can compare with any other person’s work.
For him it is not about the number of films one does, but the quality of the films that one does.
