    nollywood film festival will hold in Paris in order to seek wider audience and create awareness that nollywood is oscar ready ✅ inviting leading entertainment stakeholders to a Nigerian tourist city eg calabar/ife/Lagos to showcase these movies while treating them to our beautiful culture and fantastic Nigerian experience eg power failures, no traffic regulations and vast ethnic groups while that millions would circulate round the Nigerian tourism and entertainment sector to boom thm. would it make sense?
