Uti Nwachukwu rarely makes appearances in movies and he has a reason for this: acting doesn’t pay much and he is not ready to spend the rest of his life doing something that doesn’t improve his bank account.
Speaking with Punch, the Big Brother Africa winner got candid, saying he is now doing TV presenting and show hosting, as these pay much better.
“I haven’t been in the country, but I am back now. I took a break from acting because it doesn’t pay much and I am not ready for that kind of life,” the former model said, adding, “I don’t want to pretend about it; so, I am only focusing on what brings greater remuneration, which is television presenting and hosting of events.”
Asked if he would still appear in movies, the actor said it would be just as a sort of hobby. “Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn,” he said.
