On a comments by celebs, Nollywood movie director Jeff Ogboso lashes out on Nigeria’s culture of imitation. He wonders why we have to imitate everything other countries do.
Let me ask this, do we always have to copy the west in everything? Bollywood started this, and it hanged, then Nollywood, we let that hang too…this has to stop immediately!
Why do the film industry have to use the word “WOOD” at the end of every industry’s name like GhallyWOOD=Ghana, SollyWOOD= SierraLeone, CamiWOOD=Cameroon, KannyWOOD=Kenya, I think, sallyWOOD=South Africa.
If you think that’s all, what about native language movie in Ghana=KumaWOOD, Hausa movie in Nigeria=KannyWOOD, Yoruba movies then should be IbadannyWOOD and Ibo movie=OnitshannyWOOD or EnuguWOOD, RUBBISH!
These are foolish names! When are we going to emancipate ourselves from this mental slavery?
Why can’t we use a deep rooted African name like OSISInaija if it has to be “WOOD”? I hate this “WOOD” nonsense!!
Lol, we couldn’t stop laughing KumaWOOD, IbadannyWOOD and OnitshannyWOOD.
Anyway, you’ve heard him, let’s hear your opinions on this.
