In a recent chat, veteran actress Bukky Ajayi revealed that bad scripting is one area she despises in Nollywood.
The aged actress, who started her career many decades ago as a newscaster on NTA said she has had to turn down a litany of movie roles because of bad scripting.
“This is one major area where foreign filmmakers are doing better than us,” she was quick to add.
“Movie scripts are expected to educate viewers and families about morals, not the trend of promoting armed robbers and provocative stuffs that is currently obtainable in the industry. Most of them are even recycled stories.”
“I rejected a script sometimes ago it because after reading it, I realized that it was an English film I had watched that he changed. I had watched the film in London. So how do you expect me to take part in such film? I won’t do that,” Bukky said.
She further mentioned that poor welfare and lack of respect are part of the turn offs at most Nollywood film locations, stressing that actors rarely feed well on locations, and to make matters worse, the elderly ones are subjected to insults from junior actors and crew members.
