One of Nigeria’s sensational rappers Remilekun Abdulkalid Safaru, professionally known as Reminisce, says the music industry pays better than Nollywood and hence why many musicians rarely feature in movies.
Speaking with entertainment and lifestyle channel Hip TV, the King Of Boys star said: “The music industry pays obviously than the movie industry in Nigeria. We also don’t have a lot of big budget productions like that so it’s difficult to engage musicians except some of them that want to do it for love or support. You know it’s really difficult to tell someone who is used to certain amount to come and do the movie shoot for a lesser amount, you know, he will definitely turn you down.
“But it’s beginning to happen because we are now having big budget productions in the movie world right now, so you guys will get to see more of musicians in movies and hopefully for the right scripts and not for the money so that we can create great impression or because you have fans allover but get musicians the right script and hopefully they execute very well.”
