March 5, 2014 – “Nollywood Movies Stories Are Too Predictable, No Suspense” – Iyanya Blasts Nigerian Film Makers
In a recent interview with ICampus, star singer Iyanya took a swipe at Nigerian movie makers.
The singers said the kind of movies being produced nowadays is not unique. He further said if they hire him, he’ll turn the movie industry around.
In his own words:
“I respect a lot of directors of some movies I have seen recently. Also Nollywood actors and actresses who have gone into producing their own movies have done well for themselves. But I feel like our stories are too predictable, no disrespect. There’s no suspense.
I feel like you can just watch a Nollywood movie that you have never seen or heard of and tell the way it’s going to end before it does. But trust me; if any director partners with me to do a movie, it will be awesome.”
This is a big wake up call for Nollywood movie producers. Quality is better than quantity.
