Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has taken a swipe at some actors, actresses and movie producers in Nollywood.
Sharing on Instagram, Uche pointed out that there is no need to use ‘fake accents’ in movies as he called for originality.
According to him, their ‘fake acts’ are disgraceful to the ‘Nollywood culture’
Read his words below: Stop using a fake foreign accent in Nollywood cinema films, be original… If you were not born in #UK, #America or #Canada, please stop disgracing our #culture. Right now, over 96% of Nigerian #movies currently showing at the #cinema is flooded with fake #foreign accent, this is a national disgrace.”
“A prominent Nigerian business woman complained bitterly to me on #phone of how her daughters invited some of their #friends who live in #London to #Naija, and after spending two days in #Nigeria, one of her daughters took them to seeing a Nigerian film at the cinema in #Lekki but they were shocked to see that all the actors in that movie were speaking with a foreign accent, this businesswoman then asked me a very #good question, she said when are we going to be original in our movies?
