Why I prefer being in Nollywood movies than Hollywood – Nigerian actress, Nazo Ekezie

Nigerian actress, Nazo Ekezie says she prefers starring in domestic movies than foreign ones because of the quality of scripts.

The screen diva said Nollywood filmmakers have the best scripts in the business which is why she sometimes finds it hard to resist not taking up roles even when she’s set to go on vacation.

Speaking in an interview, Nazo also said she is very committed to her work and she sees herself as a good role interpreter.

The talented actress said; “I have not even become choosy enough. Nollywood directors and producers have the best scripts. Sometimes, even when one decides to go on vacation, there are some scripts one would see and want to do.

There are many talented people in this country. What happened was that I ventured more into production, so it took me off shooting all the time.

I consider myself a very talented actor. Aside from being talented, whenever I accept a movie role and say I am going to shoot a film, I take it on with everything I have got. I am always willing to show up and do the work. I show concern as well. That is what does it for me.”

Meanwhile, award-winning Nigerian actor, Nkem Owoh popularly known as Osuofia, has 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”.
