All through this week, one of the major talking points in the entertainment community was Genevieve Nnaji‘s response to a question about why she does not act in many Nollywood movies.
The interview quoted Genevieve to have said;
…Having practised my art in international and professionally produced stories like “Ije“, “Mirror Boy” and “Tango with Me“, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterised Nollywood in the past.”
After backlash from Nollywood players including directors who called her “ungrateful” among other choice words; the actress backpedalled and disassociated herself from the quotes.
But seriously, while the new wave of movie makers and forward-minded veterans are producing great content, the vast majority of Nollywood movies still fit the same envelope – Runs girls, gratuitous “soft porn-esque” sexuality, violence against women, mediocre storylines and the list goes on. That said, we are told – it SELLS! Apparently, that is what people want to watch.
