Yesterday, Nollywood actor cum politician, Desmond Elliot came under fire after he called for the ban of foreign movies in Nigeria to enable the growth of the Nigerian Movie Industry.
The 45-year-old representing Surulere constituency at the Lagos State house of assembly spoke on the current situation of the country’s Movie Industry.
According to him, 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?’.
