The pay reflects the standards. Who watches Kannywood these days? I see that some of them have swallowed their pride and are now hanging around the studios of Nollywood.
The Turks are Muslims too, but they are producing some of the best movies around today.
Kannywood brings far too much of religion and a false image of the northern Nigerian society into movie production, a reflection of what is happening in Nigerian governments under their leadership. They are both failing, because they are doing the same thing and expecting different results.
Take a good look at the products of Kannywood. Are they remarkably different from the standards set by NTA's "Magana Gyari Ce" of the lateb1970s to 1980s? Compare the Village Headmaster series of year's gone by with the Nollywood standards of today, and you will notice that Nollywood movie standards have moved on with the growth/changes in our societies, as created by those who create the trends.
Who wants to watch Kannywood movies that pay some actors N5,000, one that shuns the use of available technological inputs?
Why, for example, is Nigerian music productions of the likes of Burna Boy, Davido etc. thriving and bringing them good money/fame today as compared to their counterparts of the 1960s to late 1990s, who were known to be less financially bouyant?
Finally, why lie about the realities of the evolution of your culture, when all the audience needs doing is stand at a vantage position in the streets of Kano or Kaduna to watch for free the true new northern culture at play?
