New Nollywood stars explode over Novia Inwang outburst
Nollywood at war?
Whether you are aware or not ,there is a tag for the new generation of Nollywood stars, they are called ‘New Nollywood’. Amazingly, there is an ongoing battle of supremacy between the ‘ New’ Nollywood and ‘Old Nollywood. It came to the fore once again with the recent episode of Emma Ugolee‘s ‘The Gist’.
On the recently aired show, famous filmmakers Charles Novia, Moses Inwang and Uzodinma Okpechi were invited to talk about the industry and astonishingly they didn’t have lovely words to say.
Novia said that, “if you put Blossom, OC Ukeje at the box office, and put a different film with Ramsey Nouah and RMD. It’s the movie with Ramsey that would probably pull more crowd.”
Moses Inwang stated his displeasure with the current crop of actors. In his words: “They even call themselves the new Nollywood”. On the other hand, Uzodinma Okpechi tagged them: ‘Instagram stars’.
The interview generated reactions from Nollywood actors, producers and directors who took to Twitter to share their dissatisfaction.
