Ex-BBNaija Housemates Are Not Barred From Nollywood — Emeka Rollas Clear The Air

His statement triggered reactions from some Nollywood actors and fans, who accused him of discriminating against contestants on the reality show.

It will be recalled that earlier in the week, the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria grabbed headlines when he shared a message on his Instagram page stating that Nollywood was not a dumping ground for Big Brother Naija evictees.

His statement triggered reactions from some Nollywood actors and fans, who accused him of discriminating against contestants on the reality show.

However, in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Rollas stated that his words were misunderstood.

However, in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Rollas stated that his words were misunderstood.

He said, “I don’t even how some Nigerians reason. I only made a statement, not a law. It is either you agree with me or not. At the end of the day, people were just cursing. My statement was filled with figures of speech but people are interpreting it literally. There are a lot of former BBN housemates who are members of AGN, and they are doing very well. I did not ban (anybody from the industry). If my statement is narrowed down to Tega and Boma; if the script they claimed they acted in BBN was good enough, why were they evicted on the same day?”

Speaking on what AGN was doing to encourage more actors to take advantage of their healthcare programmes, Rollas said, “Those who believe in what is being pushed out are taking advantage of it and those who don’t believe in it are also there. It is our duty to keep on sensitising people.”
