Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh, better known as Osuofia has opined that Nigerian movies’ stories are far better than that of their Bollywood and Hollywood counterparts.
The Veteran actor added that Nigerian movies present real-life stories and happenings around them.
In a recent interview with News reporter in Enugu, Nkem Owoh said: “If you check the time and how we started, you give kudos because we are making a tremendous progress in the industry.”
He added that, “The storyline we take is better than any story from any woods, we don’t have the technology, but we have the story.
“We are a th!rd world country coming up, and people should give us kudos for the level we have attained.”
Speaking on technologies in Nollywood, Osuofia said, “I believe, with the stories and creativity among us, if we get the needed technology, we will go places.”
However, Daddy Freeze has tackled movie legend, Nkem Owoh over his statement. Freeze stated that his opinion was untrue as Nollywood is still way behind.
According to him, “This is untrue and even he knows it. Our music is on par with the global standards. However, our movies are still way behind. Let’s tell ourselves the truth ease. Furthermore, in my humble opinion, his thoughts are moreso representations in an idealized logical vacuum; not events within a casual nexus, thereby creating an improperly defined apparatus for the measurement of industry growth”.
