Actor, Paul Obazele believes the new breed of actors would kill Nollywood
By Patricia Uyeh
Veteran Nollywood actor, Paul Obazele , in a recent chat, talked about the problems facing Nollywood, the conscious withdrawal of old faces, the just-concluded Africa Movie Academy Awards and more.
Speaking on the state of Nollywood, the actor said:
“Until the young ones understand the fact that the old actors are not in competition with them, Nollywood would die. Give it the next few years. No matter the amount of money BoI pushes into it, it is nose-diving. Go to your radio station today, go to your TV stations, check the presenters out, everybody speaks from their nose. Where is the beautiful Yoruba accent, where is the Hausa accent, where is the Igbo accent? Meanwhile, they don’t even know what a boarding pass is.”
