    What is wrong is wrong. What is indecent is indecent. What is immoral is immoral. What is trashy and cheap is trashy and cheap. It doesn’t matter who’s doing it or where it’s being done. “”Opening up to the world””, that’s what it is, is it? that’s another name for it, is it? the other one is “”edgy””. That’s the way Mo Abudu has decided to go with EL. I have never been able to watch the show On The Real. That one too is “”opening up to the world”” and “”edgy””.

    That something is our culture does not automatically equate to something negative, embarrassing, backward, expired.

    I have never yet seen neither heard of a Bollywood movie with nudity yet that industry continues to grow in leaps and bounds, raking in billions of dollars and they continue to have collaborations with top-notch stars from the UK and USA from time to time. They don’t prostitute and cheapen themselves, rather the Western counterparts are held up to their culture and values; in fact, they don’t even have to hold a gun to their heads, hose guys come knowing the deal and write their story-lines specifically along and to suit that culture and those values and societal norms.

    “”If it is my husband’s job”””: it doesn’t have to be anyone’s job to expose their naked bodies in public before all the world, neither to be married and in bed with a naked member of the opposite sex. That is wrong and NOTHING makes that right before God. Nor, before society, don’t kid yourself.

    Until you strip yourself naked, he story is not good? you are not award-winning material? until you strip yourself naked for all the cameramen and women, producers, writers, director, gofers, light technicians, sound technicians, fellow actors and actresses, video editors, everybody on set, and when it is released, everybody in the world, until all the world and his brother have seen your nakedness, have seen you finish, you are not worthy? you are not enough? until you betray your marital vows, disrespect your spouse, cheapen your yourself, cheapen your marriage, cheapen and disrespect the vows you made before God and man, cavorting naked, and/or with a naked man/woman, kissing, simulating sex (which, despite the fact that there are people watching and filming is never 100% simulated, whether secret or open, your body responds, you can’t tell it you are ‘acting’), you are not civilised, A-list, “”edgy””, modern, “”Hollywood””-material, good enough?

    What kind of useless, stinking, stupid job is that?

    It’s not better storylines, better state or the art equipment, better acting, including going to acting and film school, it’s not things like that which will get us global recognition, reach, world domination; it is nudity.

    “”We want to open up to the world.””

    And when the clerics told President Buhari not to dream of bring a film village to their state because it would bring immorality and vices, we laughed them to scorn.

      @ NO. I understand your heart’s cry.

      The world doesn’t know it yet ,the devil is hell-bent on dehumanizing humanity. (Pun intended)
      It’s more than a hurricane! It’s already sweeping over the world borne on the ferocious wave of Social Media.
      Remember the book of Daniel said in the last days, craft (knowledge/ technology) shall increase.
      THIS IS IT!

    Wow this epistle, all for Nollywood????! I have no problem with the acts kissing, as they are trying to portray real life situations so except if people don’t kiss in real life then that will be another story. Nudity is relative, Hollywood has mastered the art and has several cuts of a particular naked scene that by the time u sit close to the scene and stare hafd enough, u might not see anyone’s private parts!!! 50 was an exception, it’s not like we have seen ladies nipples, in nollywood, cleavage but not nipples. Trust me, it’s not advancement to be naked in movies so what we r doing is not catching up with Hollywood, we are just trying something, can’t place my finger on what it is. who remembered the last installment of terminator when Sarah and the guy had to strip and arrived naked in another year, did anyone see the position both of them took, u couldn’t even see there privates, butt yeah but not actual privates so Nollywood neva reach there just yet! When they start showing love scenes on top of the covers, we can begin to panic.

    Haven’t watched the video, but I hate when Nigerians do nudity. Ewwww! It’s always distasteful. You are yet to master the art. So just freaking stop it and spare us another Emmanuel Ikubese butt. I will only accept nudity in nollywood when the setting is traditional, like an Apocalypto movie.

    The world is passing, shocking things will still happen. Your mind is either made up or you are still wavering. This is the time to be strong and know the kind of shows and images you want you and children to see. Keep your integrity, you don’t have to watch immorality.
