It seems we have not heard the last of Mark Zuckerberg’s visit. A NollyWood Actor Femi Branch is apparently not taking the misrepresentation of NollyWood by some stars likely. Mark paid a visit to AfriNolly Studios and met with stars like Rita Dominic, Stephanie Linus, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Mildred Okwo and Kunle Afolayan. In the visit these stars were introduced by the production manager, Chike Maduegbuna as the major artistes and Femi Branch didn’t take it likely. In his post on Instagram he said, “Was really pissed off at the way we misrepresent ourselves to foreigners sometimes. Imagine this fellow saying Here we have all the major Artistes”????? Seriously?!?! These are all the major stars in Nollywood?!?! And are Yemi Alade, Chidinma, Basketmouth and Co Nollywood Artistes?!?! This is really idiotic to say the least!!!”.
His post got mixed replies from followers
He however replied his followers with the below comment:
Abeg my lovely people, try and read my posts and understand my words and meanings before penning comments on them. Nollywood means the Nigerian Movie industry, which comprises all screen Actors and practitioners in Nigeria. It does not mean the Nigerian Entertainment industry, which Nollywood itself belongs to. We should be more careful when presenting such vital information to foreigners so they don’t leave confused. This is my humble submission o. God bless u all and have a fantabuloustic weekend!
