    Yes, story diversification, investment in top notch talents and most importantly huge private sector investment will go a long way in re-shaping the industry. Nollywood should be seen as a gathered determination and cause…to unite…excite and one day be what is ultimately remembered…acknowledge…appreciated and reverently recalled.
    Good Luck Adepero Oduye!

  2. Adepero is an amazing actress. I’ve adored her since I saw her in Pariah, 2011. Phenomenal

    @Nina – because we ARE evereywhere! Nice interview – it’s good to hear more about Nigerians making their positive contributions to the world (who happen to be the majority) than to hear about the crazy ones doin dirt (who are the minority and whom the media talk about excessively).

    Naija 4 life!

    Am tired of reading negative stuff about chiwetel on BN…it’s normal to say he is from london because he was born in london! all my friends say the same thing except me cause i was born in naija! secondly my friend told me that during his first trip to naija, he and his father were involved in an accident, his father was killed and chiwetel was badly injured and left scars that very visible. Please give the guy a can’t claim everybody abg
