Yesterday, Nollywood actor and politician, Desmond Elliot came under serious criticism after he called for the ban of foreign movies in Nigeria.The 45-year-old representing Surulere constituency at the Lagos State house of assembly said the ban will spike a growth in the Nollywood Industry.According to him, just like rice, the Federal Government should make it difficult for foreign content to come into the country so that local content from Nigeria can grow.
In his reaction, Daddy Freeze said,
‘Dear Brother Desmond, I love you, but I’m not with you on this. I should be able to choose what I want to watch if I’m paying for it, shouldn’t I?
Why don’t you strive to raise Nollywood to Hollywood standards and then people will gravitate towards Nollywood naturally?’.
