Ramsey Nouah Slams Nollywood Filmmakers For Not Producing Movies About Fulani Herdsmen Attacks

The thespian over the weekend said the Nigerian movie industry has failed to capture issues of herdsmen attack and recent happenings in Nigeria due to lack of structure.

The popular actor speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s programme, Rubbin Minds, said Nollywood in recent time lacked depth compared to the past.

According to him, actors were more interested in portraying ‘posh’ things, appearing on red carpets with perfect pictures rather than concentrating on pressing issues in the country.

Nouah said

There is a lot of dynamics going on in the industry tending towards not finding bearing and lack of structure.

“Back in the days, a whole of filmmakers of our kind were passionate about arts and gave it all today it is more like on the surface, people more conscious about their looks rather than acts.

“There was more depth in the past than now, every movie productions now are more about eye candy rather than depth of the performance and outlook.

“Everyone wants to shoot about posh things, cars and not filming issues about herdsmen attack, killings, villagers and political issues happening in the country

“It is not actors fault, it is what the market demand and everyone is thinking about the quick way to wealth so they jump into it.”

    To tell you the bitter truth, any Nigerian producer that tries it might be arrested for treason or hate but if Hollywood produces it, it will flood the market. Unfortunately, that is the Nigerian/African story. Movies like Hotel Rwanda, Nelson Mandela, even Idi Amin were hollywood produced. When it is so produced, it is celebrated and nobody can hold any tribe liable. The best Nigerian producers can do is to collaborate with Hollywood producers and most times, the credit will go to hollwood

    Please Ramsey, be the first to do it abi what are you waiting for? For me, I would have preferred a heart-stopping documentary about the decadence.

    what is this one saying?. He made sense in his previous interview and now saying crap. How many times had nigerian movie industry produced stories that aligned with nigeria politics and current affairs, both english and yoruba?. What exactly have that done positively to the country?.

    Mr Noah, i am sorry, you made no sense bcus, at the end of the day, the movie’s revenue benefits only filmmakers and producer. If you succeed in creating this movie, whatever revenue generated from it should be disbursed to the victims of herdsmen attack. Fair enough Mr Noah?
