Model, fashion designer and budding actress, Blessing Patrick, is fast making a place for herself as one of Nollywood’s new talents.
Blessing Patrick in a recent interview, she pointed out that despite the fast lane at which the entertainment industry is growing, the challenges faced are majorly with the movie directors.
“One of the challenges was that everybody wants to be an actor or an actress so there are lots of people struggling in the industry. It has to do with knowing someone in there who can make things work for you. It’s quite unlike those days when people went for auditions and got the Jobs.
The major challenge now is that if you are not connected, you will hardly get roles unless you give them what they (directors and producers) want.”
“The directors we have these days are not ready to make and discover stars; all they want is to promote people that are loyal to them.”
The indigene of Cross Rivers State who also doubles as the Editor, Infinity Fashion Magazine has featured in over 15 movies including World of A Prince, Enter The Place, Wave of Glory, Blast Of The Mafia, Sexy Vampires and Masquerade Dancer to mention a few.
