We recently released the Highlights of this Interview with Hollywood-based Nigerian Filmmaker, Pascal Atuma (Click Here if you missed it).
Below is the full Interview of him with Emma Emerson of Golden Icons. Pascal candidly touched on several topics including the new trend of having our beloved entertainers/iconic figures such as Desmond Elliot, and Silverbird CEO ‘Ben Bruce’ turning to politics and having a say in the government of the country, his views and expectations of our new Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, and the open letter that was sent to Richard-Mofe-Damijo (RMD).
Pascal also talked about his opinion on Nollywood Directors and Producers preying on young female who are aspiring to be star actresses in order to put them in their film productions.
As we previously reported, rumors have it that young girls nowadays have to sleep with Directors and Producers to land movie roles, and while chatting with Emma Emerson, he was asked why this alleged trend is so prominent in the Nollywood industry, and Atuma responded with the most truthful and best response ever, amongst others saying:
“After all if you have real good talent, God anointed, God giving talent; you don’t need to sleep with anyone to break through. The only people that will actually.. Most people that will actually do it are the ones.. With class B talent.”
