Nollywood actor, Enyinna Nwigwe has revealed that the entertainment industry has suffered adversely from the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic.
He explained that most of the entertainers have other side businesses they manage that brings in some income to cushion them so they are not hungry as some people perceive them to be.
He was quizzed on the question that, with the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s been ‘whispered’ that entertainers are now broke; would you say that’s true?
He replied: The pandemic hit most industries hard one way or the other, the entertainment industry isn’t left out especially because it is a ‘social’ work where people have to interact closely in physical capacity to make movies or even watch in cinemas or attend events.
However, there are also parts of the same industry doing better as content owners selling faster now that the world has shifted their consumption for content, more to the online space. Also some entertainers have other side businesses keeping them afloat and content while the world resets.
