Making skits pays better than Nollywood — Nons Miraj


A skit maker and actress, Chinonso Ukah, aka Nons Miraj, has said she earns more money from making skits than when she was acting in movies.

In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “Content creation has changed my life in a very big way. I remember when I used to act in Nollywood films, I would be paid as little as N30,000, and they would keep me on set for one week. Sometimes, one would get stressed. They won’t even give one preferential treatment. But, with skits, one does things on one’s accord. One is not working under anybody. One dictates the amount one wants to be paid based on the services one is rendering to the people that are paying for adverts. The life is just soft and sweet. Content creation is beautiful, as long as one is doing the right thing.”


The sexy entertainer also noted that she could never go nude in a skit. She said, “I cannot go nude in a skit because things on social media will always backfire. People feel that Nollywood is different from skit making. When they see one do things in films, they could say one was following the instruction of the director or producer. But for skits, the buck stops on one’s table as the owner of the page. If the story is bad, one would be blamed. If the acting is bad, one would be blamed as well. I would never go nude in a skit because social media never forgets. There are other jobs that can pay me enough money without me exposing my body.”


Speaking on how she has been coping with the rising cost of living in the country, Miraj said, “It has been bad. The prices of things have become so high. Whenever I send my personal assistant or chef to the market, they come back, saying that the money I gave them was not enough. One also has family members making demands. Things are not easy. I have just been coping by the grace of God.”
