He said: [1.] The way we deal with contracts here, it’s a joke. Like black and white. If you’re supposed to do a job, the way they’re supposed to go about it, there’s still a lot of unprofessionalism in those areas. People cancel contracts, actors not showing up, taking money.

[2.] Producers removing actors last minute without you being aware. Imagine you’re supposed to be in a job, and the job has gone on and you’re not part of the job and you’ve canceled your calendar. It doesn’t make sense. So it’s still a joke here. Breaching of contracts

[3.] Timing too. Set is supposed to start at 9, I get on set, they say “this is Nigeria,” I don’t know what I’m in.’’ Boma added.
