The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Ms Ibinabo Fiberesima has ordered for the registration of new members. The exercise that was done by paying cash was changed to bank payment and online registration.
This change we gathered was made to ensure accountability and reduce fake registration unlike in the past when as much as N15,000 to N20,000 was collected for registration. AGN has reduced to fee the N5,000.00. However, while it appears easy to become an actor or actress in this regime, the national body has introduced yet a new method of choosing who will become an artiste.
AGN will staring from this year screen all registered members to ascertain those who are qualified to be part which is geared towards eradicating mediocrity will scrutinize attitude, charisma and educational background of each registered member of the registration that will take place in all the state chapters would be conducted by top actresses, Monalisa Chinda, Genevieve Nnaji, Stephen Okereke, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Bimbo Akintola, Mike Ezuruonye, Desmond Elliot, Chidi Mokeme and Bobmanuel Udokwu among others.
