Popular Nollywood actor, Francis Duru has expressed dissatisfaction with some happenings in the movie industry, saying many young actors are more interested in fame rather than grooming their talents.
Duru, who has contributed immensely to the growth of Nollywood came into prominence after featuring in the 1994 movie, ‘Rattle Snake’ which was produced by late Amaka Igwe.
According to him, some young actors are more interested in fame than developing and sustaining their talents.
He said, “Young actors of these days focus on fame and not the process that would make them excel in their craft and  because they do not go through that process  sustainability becomes a problem.
The award winning actor also bemoaned the failure of government to invest in the creative industry, saying the industry has contributed immensely to Nigeria’s economy. Therefore it should not  be neglected.
”The industry that started on its own without any major support has brought so much prestige to the nation
”These days, people want to identify with Nigerian movies all over the world, the government really needs to sit up and put the right infrastructure in place” Duru stated.
