Popular Nigerian actor, Yul Edochie, has refuted the assertion made by Reno Omokri that Nollywood is spoiling the image of Nigeria
Edochie, who is a son of veteran Pete Edochie, took to his Twitter handle on Friday to share his thoughts.
He stated that the country’s film industry is plagued with political issues like instability with government decisions.
Edochie wrote: “Speak with foreign investors, their fear is the failing economy of Nigeria, the insecurity and the fact that Govt can wake up any day and make a law that can cripple all their investments without thinking twice. Their fear is not the stories from Nollywood films.”
“Past leaders failed to fix the country, you all turn around to blame Nollywood for it. All the gun violence movies you watch from America has it stopped you from applying for American visa, neither have the kung fu movies stopped you from going to China. It’s all entertainment.”
It will be recalled that Reno Omokri recently called out Nollywood for making foreigners see Nigerians as “fetish juju people”.
