Upcoming actors must be ready to pay their dues to rise to fame – Yemi Solade

Popular Nollywood actor, Yemi Solade has charged upcoming actors to work hard and pay their dues instead of wanting to be stars overnight.

Solade, a renowned thespian who has been on stage for forty-six years, who recently bagged a role in Kunle Afolayan’s new movie Ijogbon, encouraged young people interested in acting to build their skills first.

The actor said most young people want to act for the glamour and the gains but said they must be more intentional about doing the work.

Speaking at the event, he said, “When young people walk up to me and say things like, Daddy make me a star, I tell them if I have spent 46 years in the industry and still struggling, then who are you?

“They should be ready to pay dues, do the art right, so that the art can do them right.”
