Veteran Nollywood actor, Akin Lewis, has said that being well educated has helped his level of exposure in the movie industry.

He said this in a recent interview where he disclosed that all his colleagues who started acting together with him are dead.

His words: “I am a well educated person and that is what helped my level of exposure in the movie industry.

“In this job, there is money and there is poverty because when actors make a lot of money from movies they spend it lavishly.

“There is no pension in our job, so it is important to develop a saving habit for the future, so that even when the actor is sick, he will be able to take care of himself.

“I started my acting career a long time ago with the likes of Olumide Bakare and some other colleagues, all my colleagues that we started acting together are dead, I am the only one left.”
