Nigeria, (AN24) -The Nigerian movie industry, ‘Nollywood’ is back again, this time with an epic movie titled ‘A village in Africa’, where most of the featured actresses acted topless.
The movie which was produced by Amos Onwe,calls for questioning if really the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) is effective in the country.
Gone are days, when the norms and ethics of the Nigerian culture and tradition were embedded in the film production of the Nigerian movie industry, ‘Nollywood’, but reverse seems to be the case, as the African bite and uniqueness in Nollywood is nowhere to be found.
Legendary actors like Pete Edoche, Olu Jacobs, Nkem Owoh, Liz Benson, Joke Silva, Bukky Ajayi, Chinwe Owoh, Regina Askia, Genevieve Nnaji and many more have been known over the years, not only for their acting prowess, but the decency in their work.
It can be recalled that the Nigerian actors and actresses then had upper hand over their Ghanaian counterparts in terms of good script, great directing and productivity, as well as cinematography aspect of the movie.
Two decades ago, Nigeria movie industry garnered publicity with the kind of movies that the producers were streaming out, these movies gained recognition within and outside the country, due to its informative and it’s rich content, the Nollywood then was known for the cultural heritage of Nigeria showcased in its movie scenes, with many suggesting that the industry in no time will meet up with its European counterparts in terms of professionalism and otherwise.
However, it seems this will remain a tall dream as the new movies released into the markets continue to gather dust as regards Nollywood dream of becoming the world best film industry.
With this, many had thought that the Nollywood will redirect it paths but reverse is the case, as the new movie “A Village In Africa’ has proved.
Watch the trailer of the movie below…………………………….
