The fact most people don't know is that Nollywood actors and actresses don't earn as much as we think they earn. No thanks to piracy.

They earn good pay but not much considering the fact that there is no certainty to when one can get a call for a movie. The competition is more now than ever. One might end up getting only 5 movies in a year. With earnings not enough to take care of the family.

Well, many old actors and actresses have find extra ways of making extra money. Some look for a legit way, others look for an illegal way to hit big.

Unfortunately for Uche Odoputa who is a movie producer, director and actor, he went the wrong way. Instead of his decision to better his life, it cost him what he already had.

In 2007, Uche Odoputa was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos by Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) for trafficking drugs. He was sentenced and jailed for two years and three weeks.

According to Uche, he said he took the offer to traffick drug because of his living condition. He wasn't able to feed or house himself and his family. He regretted his decision and he let his family down.

When seeking for more through an illegal means, he lost even what he had. When he came out, he had nothing, friends left him. But he a strong man. He has since returned back and he his doing just well. He has acted in lots of movies and even directed some top notch movies using the Nollywood standard.
