    This is the new Cabal in Nollywood that Shan George was talking about. If you don’t belong to this club, or know someone in this club, no way for you to shine in Nollywood.

    In fact, it would be very hard for an actress from humble beginings to eventually shine like Genny Nnaji or Mercy Johnson in this generation. Most if not all of the young actors and actresses today come from rich/political families.

      well you know what they say, if you can’t beat them or join them, you better form your own cabal with money, or go and apply for Diamond Bank job like other people 🙂
