StarTimes TV Now Dubbing Chinese Movies Into Yoruba Language, Dares Nollywood Stars

December 27, 2016 – Star Times TV Now Dubbing Chinese Movies Into Yoruba Language, Ignores Protest By Nollywood Stars

Nigerian Pay TV Star Times has started dubbing Chinese movies into Yoruba and other indigenous languages.

While defending the company’s action yesterday, StarTimes spokesperson Israel Bolaji said the project wasn’t aimed at putting Nollywood actors out of business as alleged by leading film makers, and other stake holders recently.

StarTimes further argued that Nigerians liked Bollywood and Chinese movies; hence, the need to improve communication channels.

Here is a statement released by the company:

    This move should be rejected by the Yoruba movie practitioners! This will be the beginning of the end for them if they allow it. Let the leaders in the industry fight this to a standstill and not allow themselves to be bribed with a couple of million naira.

    Please bring back the film moon embracing the stars as it is not clear whether it is ended or not. And as soon as possible. And also bring it back to the normal scheduling time. Thanks.
