Actress Joke Lawal highlights things wants to change in the movie industry

Nollywood actress Joke Lawal says she will like to change narratives that those in her line of profession are prostitute.

The actress said while speaking in an interview with Vanguard’s Potpourri.

She said:

“I would like to change people’s perception of actresses. A lot of people think of actresses as prostitutes, they see us as people who are not worthy of marriage and having a family. If I have the power this is something I will like to change. I will also like to see a change in the way our stories are written and interpreted, and in the quality of our film productions. Another thing I would like to change too is, how poorly actors are paid. As a producer, I will like a situation where I can pay every actor that works on my project even if the person acts in just one scene. As an upcoming actress, I acted in movies and didn’t get paid but because I was still new in the industry I didn’t have a choice. God help me, these are things I will like to change in the movie industry
