Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, is urging up and coming artists to study their contracts before signing with labels and not be hungry to be seen.
The popular actress who is affectionately called Jennifer said this on the sidelines of the premiere of the Prime Video Five Part Mini Series titled: ‘She must be Obeyed’ in Lagos recently.
Funke Akinedele emphasised the need for young artists to be and careful in their proceedings and not regret later.
“It is extremely important for young and up-and-coming artists to ensure that they study their contracts to know the details and know what they are going through.
“We put out content that affects young artists and that is why we came up with this series so that when they watch it, they would learn a lot of things and be very careful.
“Young artistes need to be educated and we need to organise a lot of seminars, workshops for them to know that they are important.
“The young talents are very hungry to be seen as they want to showcase their talent but unfortunately, they don’t study their contracts, they don’t get a lawyer or families that are experienced to educate them.
“The series will teach them a lot of things that will help them grow and learn the basic things in the industry,” Funke Akindele said.
