    Why, o why, do we have same faces in today’s nollywood? This same cast will still be in another movie again. I know they are very good actors, but why use them over and over? Is it a ‘padi’ movement in the industry? Can we not get new faces? Haba!
    BNers, it’s not bad belle, it is just a genuine concern.

      Nollywood is afraid of new faces because they don’t want to pay! The people you keep seeing, all these people know each other, so it’s all this couch casting type “do me this favor, I’ll do this for you” type. They’re not making money. Actors are famous yet BROKE.

    I just hope the movie will make sense. Naija is getting tired of OC in almost all movies.

      Nah nah nah! You cannot speak for Naija…you can only speak for yourself. A lot of us dont mind seeing OC in so far as he properly interprets his roles – that’s our opinion. He hasn’t been typecast and he’s doing a good job – that’s a fact.

    The sammmmmeeeeeeeeeeee faces in every damn movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why???? This is why I like the likes of Sharon Ezeamaka, Kenneth Okoli, Joseph Benjamin, Uti, Lilian Esoro, Nse, Nancy Isme, Genevieve (I love my Genny baby die!) Brycee Bassey ( Saw her interview about not wanting to be in so many movies), just a some to mention, that you don’t see all the time, but when you do, you’re excited to see them (whether the movie is rubbish or good). OC I use to like but he is in too many movies and to me is losing his value like Alex Ekubo and IK Ogbonna.. Adesua is on her way to being washed out just as quickly as she came in. This industry is feeling and looking somehow sha. They seem to just work with the same circle of people. all the time and this is actually NOT a good thing.It’s like they don’t want to let anyone in (or maybe these people aren’t really being paid as much as we think, I heard actors make terrible pay). I’m scared for how Nigerians have started overhyping movies and then they fall flat flat flat (i.e. Kunle’s CEO). Maybe this industry is starting to hit a plateau?? I hope this movie will be good, but seeing the same people has already given me a bit of pretentious feeling. Anyway, will go and see it.

    My goodness, what do you guys mean the same faces?? They’re actors their job is to get acting jobs. They’re lots of movies that come out without them, go watch those. You people are annoying. You want them to acting in two movies, so how will they eat or feed their passion? Genny can afford to do 1 movie in 5 years because she paid her dues, she was once in EVERY MOVIE too… Like hellooo.

    Hian! people na wa!!! Sometimes it might just be that these people interpret their roles properly and are go to work with. Haven’t you every wondered why Steven Spielberg works with mainly Tom Hanks or Leonardo and Martin Scorsese. Its just good chemistry and vibes with the acts. The production team have worked with the main characters from different movies so lets cut them some slack and go see the movie. My main worry will be if they have put in all this work and the best act/character to watch is Ireti Doyle.
