Kenneth Aguba Speaks On His Acting Career
The actor, who was recently offered free accommodation after he was found homeless, said he has acted in many movies, but the producers allegedly refused to pay him.
Aguba recounted how a filmmaker once paid him N200 for a movie role after he requested for his remuneration, noting that they mostly settle him with as low as N5,000.
He said, “I’ve acted in so many movies, however, no one paid me. I remember someone came to film me. I told him that he didn’t pay and he gave me N200. I mean he gave me N200, what should I use it for?.
“He told me to go home and promised to come pay me my money. N200,000 was what I charged him and he has not paid till now. It’s getting to three months. If anyone asks him, he’ll claim that he has paid me.
“Is it good? I’ve acted in many movies. I acted in ‘Igwe Osuofia’, ‘Aguba’ that people know me for, I acted in ‘Ogbanje’, ‘Returning from America’, ‘Million Money’. I also acted with Pete Edochie.
“I’ve acted in so many movies between Calabar and Owerri. I’ve acted everywhere and I started in 2003. They just suffered me, they can’t pay me. I remember acting in Jos, he carried my money and ask me to come back to Jos to collect my money.
“How can? How much will I spend on the journey before I reach Jos? He kept that one. Many times it happened, they ate my money. They didn’t pay me well. They gave me N5000, they are happy. They think they are paying me.”
