June 5, 2015 – Saheed Balogun Says Jonathan Treated Nollywood Like Primary School Pupils

Nollywood actor Saidi Balogun who was recently cheated by Alaba movie pirates has come after the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan over his soft approach to piracy.

According to him, GEJ treated Nollywood celebrities like school kids instead of focusing on ending piracy.

Hear him;

“There was a time I produced a movie, and it was pirated within days; it’s like the pirates have their own copies. We’re still looking for who leaked it, but we don’t know yet. I lost over N15m on that project. However, I’m still motivated to do more because it’s my dream.

Soon, change will come to this country. The last government was hosting us (Nollywood) as if they were hosting birthday parties for kids and school children.

For one day, they never thought of it to beg senators and the House of Representatives to pass appropriate laws on piracy. I am seizing this opportunity to beg the new Senators and House of Representatives members who are in the committee in charge of culture to please pass relevant bills on entertainment.

That is what they are elected to do, not to be shouting and jumping fence like they did the other time.

    My husband told me he used Nollywood to loot over 10 billion. I don’t know how true it is.
