  1. thank you very much boris… THE MAN THAT LOOKS LIKE AN OSCAR , BUT NEVER GOT ONE……. WHEN DID you last do a film in hollywood, the fact is when work is dry… they begin to remember NOLLYWOOD…. it wouldn’t be expected of you to say the opposite, when nigeria is paying you in a hefty sum and in dollars, cash down first, just but to be a judge…. apart from that, they will lodge you in the best hotel with 10 star treatment, something you never will get in L.A AND HOLLYWOOD, if at all you work the darkest side of your brown ass out hardest….. The question is, is nollywood not stupid, they don’t understand hollywood the way it works, and they think by bringing these so called stars in, they build a link and connection, what Arab nonsense;…… they are laughing and carrying your money away tax free, odey people for nollywood…. open and shin your brains first so you can see clearly with your eyes…

  2. Boris,u r greatly welcome 2 nigeria nd nollywood also featurin in nollywood film wil upgrade naija film industry. Am waitin 2 watch ur first colabo wit naija actor nd actress moreover i lv ur films.

  3. nollywood una no know sey, dem dey laugh una……. did africa or nollywood assisted him in anyway to launch his career in hollywood? una like ready made…. it is like we are so insecure and not confident in ourselves…. there are stars and undiscovered talents there in nigeria , why not use them and pay half the prize

  4. every single day a nigerian entertainer suffers from an ailment, they have to travel out of the country to seek treatment…. and at most times they die like flies… no value…. Nollywood have got no financial security for their artist, they are not united or speak with one voice, they have not being able to set up a solid foundation for their entertainers for the unforeseen…. yet they have money to squander for these so called Has-Being trying to revived their careers in hollywood faded stars… build your own, have your own identity, ask your own to be the jugde and host….

  5. We Nigerians are so insecure. It appears we have put ourselves under another form of slavery. Why do you want to import these Hollywood has been just to prove a pointless cause. Amber Rose judging Miss Earth? Are you now saying there are no worthy Nigerians who can do this better? Who is Amber Rose? Tu Face Idibia’s wedding was in Dubai etc. Shame on you lot for showing off and making fools of yourselves. This is not classy at all. If any foreigner is truly interested to know more about Nigeria, They should buy their own tickets to come down. They must be laughing at us silly Africans who will pay anything to bring them down here on a 10 star holyday of their dreams.
