Yvonne Jegede, the sometimes controversial Nollywood actress and producer has voiced her support for an arm of Nollywood which seems many practitioners and observers hardly give its due recognition, Asaba Nollywood.
Asaba Nollywood refers to the Nollywood movies that are predominantly made in the Eastern part of Nigeria, some in Igbo language and marketed in Asaba, Delta state.
The actress took to her Instagram page to publicize her support:
This is where we started! so we say no to discrimination….what u term #ASABAMOVIES is nollywood….our cinematography is very good, our actors are the BEST, our Directors are very good…and our scripts are better!
