Tony Umez, a veteran actor, on Monday, said that the Nigerian entertainment industry is vibrant enough to accommodate serious minded thespians who wish to carve a niche in the profession.
Umez told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that upcoming thespians could avail themselves of the opportunities the industry had to offer.
“There are a lot of opportunities for someone to make it big in the entertainment industry because of its diversity in cultural perspective,” he said.
“The only criterion needed for an upcoming individual to make it in this industry is creativity,” he added.
Tony said he was pleased with the quality of new entertainers in the industry and expressed optimism in the potential of the industry as a foreign exchange earner.
“People coming into the industry now are graduates that have something positive to offer regarding entertaining audiences.
“Also, the influx of intelligent people, who are knowledgeable about the art, is gradually reducing mediocrity in the industry,’’ Umez added.
The actor lauded the Lagos state government’s effort to develop the industry in the state and the country, as a whole.
