She is old and losing relevance

Sisi_Kill: Well considering in most the cases (and I am being conservative because I would really like to say ALL) the actors also sign contracts stating how much they will be paid before the movie is made, using box office numbers to calculate what the actresses make still makes no sense.

There are two ways they will be entitled to the gross revenues....

1) They were also the producers (that is they invested money/created an avenue for money to be available for the production)

2) They signed a backend Deal - This is when an actor agrees to a little or no pay before the movie and gets a certain percentage of the box office returns. Actors enter this agreement when they think they have a blockbuster on their hands. And only major major major actors whose names alone on the make marquee is sure to draw crowd, can make deals like that.

Now Nollywood sentiment aside, do you see that kinda deal happening here? Which actress will sign a backend Deal in an erratic movie industry like ours? An industry that isn't properly regulated, where all the average Joe needs is a fast PC with DVD burner to make their copies of the movies for sale....which will in turn cut into the profit? I would call for a serious psych evaluation for any actor who agrees to a backend deal in this environment.

Since it is safe to conclude there were no backend deals in these cases and the actresses also serving as executive producers on the movies mentioned is just a slight possibility, then it is safer to conclude that this article is BS and has nothing important to impart.

Oh by the way, more often than not the crew works for the production company so yes their salaries can indeed be tied to the box office returns.

Another by the way, if it is obvious they don't have the right data to compile a list like this. ...why bother? Why make a foool of themselves just to feel among? Never heard the writer's name before so I obviously had no opinion of him/her but after this article. ...not only has he been brought to our consciousness. ...we can also opine that he is ignorant. What's that old saying again. ...rather be silent and be thought a fool than. ....well you get the point.

I LOVE ALL DEM FIVE ACTRESSES AND REALLY APPRECIATE THEIR WORK. Glad that they are my favourites and excited that they topped the list? But where is Stephanie Okereke? Isn't she acting anymore? It's been a while.
