He recently revealed that we have seen too many fetish Nollywood movies already, and it is time for movie stars to embrace more scientific storylines that drive impact.
According to him, he really wants actors and actresses to jettison production that are not positively tailored, as that is the way forward for the movie industry.
He added that he’ll keep praying for the deadly coronavirus to not consume Nigeria.
His words, “I pray that coronavirus will not consume us in this country and I pray finally that our people continue to understand the fact that COVID-19 is real and people should continue to adhere to all the conditions and regulations given to us by the authority.”
“I have met COVID-19 patients. I have met people that are really involved and I know that the people that I met will not be bought over by anybody. I know what I am talking about. So, they gained absolutely nothing from me telling lies.”
On Nollywood, “We should jettison any production that tends to create disaffection. We should jettison production that are not positively tailored. We should tailor our production more on scientific issues that can help the populace and the world. We should stop all these ideas about fetish things.”
What do you think?
Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.
The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.
Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.
Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
