A Letter to MY NOLLYWOOD!!

Dear Nollywood,
How are you?
Hope you’re doing great?
A quick one!!

Please ,can we glorify the hardworking part of IGBO MEN, in our movies??
Instead of
“RITUALS”
alllllllll the time!!
I mean, people are beginning to see it as a norm and if you really want to look into it yeah, IGBO MEN IN NIGERIA ARE THE MOST HARDWORKING MEN!!!
Yes I said what I said!! With my FULL CHEST!! “Even the ladies”

Let me take you back to the comments about (the #Oba celebration of life )
The comment section was filled with a lot of Negativity!!
Wow !
So an Igbo man can’t make clean money again?? I don’t understand it…
I have stayed in the midst of them ( they talk about business , 80percent of all the times, always very calculative)… I mean, we (Nollywood) are MINISTERS TOO!! we preach through our movies and subconsciously get into the minds of people !!!
So ,I beckon on our writers to please showcase more of “REAL , CLEAN, GROWTH STORIES “ not just for the IGBO MEN! But especially for them, because we kinda gave them this Look, through our movies!!

Ps: I’m not dating any Igbo man oh! Just saying the Bitter truth
“THEY WORK VERY HARD, and that part of them
DESERVES CLARITY “

Thanks & GODBLESS US ALL

I am – PRAISE SAM OGAN
(Yours Faithfully )
