Veteran actor Sola Fosudo has expressed his displeasure about the current status of Nollywood. According to him, the stories are being repackaged.
He expressed his displeasure in a recent interview with Saturday Beats.
“I don’t watch Nollywood movies anymore because most of them are re-packaged stories. Sometimes, they see an interesting foreign movie and they try to localise it but in the process, they bastardise the whole thing. You will find out that most of the stories are not original.”
You find some people come in overnight and they become star actors, some of them would become directors and producers within six months. The quality of what they bring out would be questionable. If you get adequate training, you would understand what you are doing because you have studied it in theory so when you want to apply it, it would be done based on knowledge not on intuition or penchant. There is a difference between trained actors and the untrained ones,”
