Movie director and producer Biodun Stephen has contributed to the debate on how Nollywood practitioners are rewarded.
Some male actors in the industry have alleged they are underpaid compared to their female counterparts.
But Stephen thinks otherwise, declaring that the skill and talents of actors/actresses determine what they get paid.
In a chat with HipTV, the filmmaker said:“ ’Female actresses are paid more because they have something else to offer. What exactly?
“Because I assume that your service is valued based on a number of criteria, what you bring to the table.
“In terms of skill, representation and brand. These are the things that form the decision to pay you a certain amount. Amount ‘X’ or ‘Y’,” she said.
