Iconic Nollywood actor, Sola Fosudo, has lambasted the movie industry for mediocre movies recently being circulated.

According to him, Nollywood has been reduced to unprofessional directors, actors, who feel they know it all.

The veteran director, speaking with the Punch said he rarely watches Nollywood movies because most of the films are not original, adding that most of the movies churned out are cheap and distasteful imitation of foreign movies adapted to suit Nigerian viewers.

He said, “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 localize it but in the process, they bastardize the whole thing. You will find out that most of the stories are not original.

“The problem with the industry is that it is being run by unprofessional people who feel they know it all. I too know people. If people who are not trained in a particular trade populate the trade, there would be development problem. But if they come as supporting personnel and allow the trained people take the centre stage, then development and growth would be integrated.

“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.

“For instance, in the banking industry, most of the people there studied related courses that would make them function properly in their duties. If there are other people coming, like those who studied Geography, Yoruba, etc, they would not allow them to fill some positions.

“They would come in as supporting personnel and begin to get in-house training which would eventually make them masters of their craft if they want to remain in the industry, but here, 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.”
