If you are thinking about becoming a Nollywood actor in Nigeria, the possibility of achieving your dream in a highly competitive industry is low, but with the right tips, you can go on to become the next Jim Iyke or Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola, Rita Dominic, and more.

Nollywood is one of the biggest film industries on the globe, with America’s Hollywood and India’s Bollywood as its only major competitors. If you have to be on the big screens of Nigerian television as a Nollywood star, then there are certain steps you must take to stand out as unique from others.


Build Your Talent And Skill

You cannot be good at whatever you do in life by magic, there is always a constant need to build on your talent and your craft. Do not wait for Kemi Adetiba or Kunle Afolayan to discover you before you start developing your craft. Some of the simple ways that you can improve your craft are by joining acting clubs, appearing in stage plays, doing a little acting for upcoming brands, and more. The more you practice your craft, the better you become at it. Don’t wait for the big opportunity before raising your game.

Your Appearance Matters                    

The global film industry is notable for its glitz and glamour. You cannot want to be on the screens for viewers but pay less attention to your looks and what you wear. You do not have to break the bank as an actor, but you have to look like what you do. A football player is easily identified by his or her sport kit; likewise, a tennis player. For an actor, your appearance must be catchy and stunning, and you need to have a great sense of poise and style.

Go For Auditions

Some of the biggest stars in Nollywood still go for auditions to land big roles; who then are you as an upcoming act to expect these roles to come to you? It can be stressful and tiring, especially when you get rejected multiple times, but life is for the relentless. If you truly want to be on television, you must be willing to make sacrifices.
