Rita Dominic, a prominent Nollywood actress, has claimed that she received N10,000 for her first film part.

She revealed this in a recent interview with Joy 99.7 FM in Ghana.

The actress stated that when she began acting, Nollywood was not profitable, but she was motivated by her passion.

Dominic said, “I just wanted to be an actor. And to be honest, there was no money in Nollywood back then. We were just doing it for the passion. We have the passion for the art which was what fuelled us.

“It was very challenging. But we just kept doing it until the industry got bigger and bigger. And obviously the pay became much better.”

Asked the lowest amount she has ever received for a movie role, she said, “The first film I did, the filmmaker paid me N35,000. But he owed me N25,000 for how many months. In fact, he didn’t even pay me the balance. He paid me only N10,000 [laughs].”
