Meanwhile, Nigerian actor, Nkem Owoh popularly known as Osuofia, recently said the type of stories being told in Nollywood movies makes it better than that of its global counterparts Hollywood and Bollywood.

Speaking on Thursday, he said Nigerian movies present real life stories and happenings around the immediate society, so it is wrong to compare the quality of domestic films to those produced in advanced countries.

Nkem Owoh further explained that Nigerian filmmakers were only adopting the use of technology imported from the developed nations.

He said; “The storyline we take is better than any story from any woods, we don’t have the technology, but we have the story.

“We are a third world country coming up, and people should give us kudos for the level we have attained.

“I believe, with the stories and creativity among us, if we get the needed technology, we will go places”.

The veteran actor further said that with the availability of advanced technology in Nollywood, the industry has witnessed immense improvement.

He said; “If you check the time and how we started, you give kudos because we are making a tremendous progress in the industry.

“With the kind of technology we have now, I believe Nollywood has a very far distance to go positively”.
