Meanwhile, in another news…

Nigerian veteran actor, Bob-Manuel Udokwu recently decried the influx of poorly trained practitioners into the movie industry.

He expressed sadness that half-baked actors and filmmakers have invaded Nollywood and are now the leading characters.

Udokwu said the industry should be better than the level it has reached and the only reason the growth seems stagnant is because a lot of unprofessional activities are taking place.

The movie star said; “Nollywood ought to be greater than what it is at the moment. Unfortunately, the true potential of the industry is not being realised. A lot of unprofessional activities are going on.

“Many half-baked practitioners have invaded the industry. The real professionals should step forward and take back Nollywood.”
