Nobody Wants To Produce A Poor Movie On Purpose, According To Stella Damasus


is raising her voice in favor of Nollywood filmmakers who are striving valiantly against all difficulties to advance the business.

The seasoned actress used Instagram to offer a touching video explaining how much labor goes into Nollywood movies and the occasionally unhelpful internet criticism they get.

“So I’ve gone online a couple of times and I hear people criticizing the Nigerian movie industry, criticizing our films and condemning it,” Damasus said in the Instagram post.

“Not even constructive criticisms but really negative things and it hurts me because they think it is easy to get a bunch of people together, get crew, get cast, get them to different locations, shoot morning to morning, suffer.

“I don’t think anyone wants to waste time and money and intentionally make a bad film. We do our best with the little we have. We try, we push and that’s why we still have a thriving industry today, because of the hard work.”

Filmmakers responded favorably to Damasus’s video in support of Nollywood in the comments area, as was to be anticipated.
Unquestionably, the actress is one of the very few loud voices in the business that promotes Nollywood productions without discrimination.
The actress has also just started a YouTube monologue series called “In The Chair.” A speech on sexual assault opened the first season of the show.
