April 3rd, 2017 – Uche Jombo Blasts Goodluck  Jonathan For N3billion Nollywood Grant, Says It Is Improper

In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, Uche Jombo highlighted the main headache afflicting film makers in Lagos.

The buxom actress also pooh-poohed the notion that she was a beneficiary of the largesse given to the industry by the immediate-past president of the country.

Her words:

“The major challenge of making films in Lagos State is the menace of area boys. They usually come on set to harass and molest us.

On several occasions, they have beaten members of the cast and crew, and even destroyed expensive equipment.

Getting location and enabling environment is also a problem. Electricity is also among the problems because we have to make do with generators when filming and the noise affects our productions.

Lastly, getting funds could also be cumbersome and we all know that producing a good film is capital intensive.”

 “I didn’t get any of the grants former president Jonathan gave the industry. And I know thousands of filmmakers who didn’t get anything as well.

I don’t believe that anybody should throw money at Nollywood for filmmakers to go and share; I’m of the opinion that proper infrastructure should be put in place.

If this is done, people would sort themselves out financially,”

  1. Goodluck have rule and go. So wetin are they call am back again for? Is a nonsens. Wetin they are talk for here is doesn’t concern to me. Wetin is concern to me be say it sweet me say John Sinner and Nikid Beggar win Miz and Mariz for Wrestimanian wey was do on Sunday. It dey romance bicos after they was win, John Sinner come take the immidatly of the winning to beg Nikid Beggar to marry him. Nikid Bella come gree. So they was starting to kiss for the place. But wetin is pain upon me be say upon all the money wey John Sinner is having, he come use nonsens ring to be wearing to Nikid Beggar. Na fake ring wey Alhaji Dankwandaru was do for me Sokoto and sell to my brother for Ekiti State. So my brother was think say na orininal ring. But when he come know say na fake ring, he throway am. He throway am for River for Ado Ekiti. Wetin is confuse to me is how it take reach America. It be like say na water carry am enter sea and reach America. So John Sinner come take am in wearing of Nikid Beggar finger. What a sin thing. What a wayo thing. What a miss.

  2. It would be advisable that the current president lunch a probe into the N3billion granted to the Nollywood industry by Goodluck Ebele Jonathan during his rule. The disbursement of such staggering amount of money into that sector is ostensibly an act of stealing and embezzlement of public fund meant to resuscitate and maintain a steady growth of the Nation’s economy. Despite the injection of this huge amount, today it is still very much glaring that Nigeria movie industry still lack behind tremendously due to the absence of the highly needed infrastructure that will enable it to meet with international standard with well improved quality movie production. I think the president need to view this issue as a high profile case that is worthy of attention since it predominant pledge is to fight corruption and completely rid the nation of corrupt practises in government. Therefore, an unhindered investigation should be established into this report without fail with full determination to bring any unpatriotic element found guilty to book irrespective of the political status of such ones.

  3. u didnt benefit from the largesse from goodluck administration.look inward into your own domot first and purge out the area boys within the nollywood industry who grabbed the billions from govt and did not carry everybody along.after that,u can protest to the police community to assist and protect u all from agberos during filming events.too late to cry.
