Adibe, in a viral video, revealed that he had been out of work for over 12 years after he turned down an Onitsha producer’s proposition to work on free scripts.
The ‘Staff of Odo’ actor who is visually impaired further disclosed that while he earned between N10,000 -N30,000 in his prime, veterans like himself currently earn N100,000.
Adibe’s revelation has since raised a few eyebrows about the state of veteran actors who often pass on from illnesses and abject poverty.
Recall that weeks ago, veteran Kannywood actress Ladin Chima popularly known as Mama Tambaya called out the Hausa film industry, Kannywood for exploiting her and abandoning her in old age. The aged actress revealed that she earned as little as N2000 per script in her prime.
