It is common for Nollywood veterans to solicit for help on social media, especially the ones that glazed our screens in the 90’s and 2000’s.
These veterans make up our childhood memories. In lieu of this, Jaiye Kuti, a movie veteran and a wealthy one as that, has berated actors and actresses who solicit for financial support on social media.
Jaiye Kuti in a video on her Instagram page, slammed movie veterans who come online to beg for financial support over their deteriorating health condition.
According to the actress their cries for help on social media is denting the image of the Yoruba movie industry.
She added that most of these movie veterans who seek for help online spent their earnings in the industry on shortlived pleasures without proper planning for the future.
