Look away, Nigerians. AY Makun says his next movie, A Trip to Jamaica is not exactly for you.
The comedian cum producer has said that after a quick research, he discovered that Jamaicans are huge fans of Nollywood movies so he decided to make a film to appreciate them.
He told NET, “I did a research and discovered that Jamaicans love Nollywood. I usually want to have a blend of different cultures and in my research, I noticed that Jamaicans are big fans of Nollywood movies. They always want to watch our movies, they even sneak from their offices to watch our movies and so the best way to appreciate them back is to do something within their premise and create an aesthetic balance. This will make them like Nollywood even more.“
On his choice of Eric Roberts as a lead actor in A Trip to Jamaica, AY explained, “I also discovered that Eric Roberts is more like an idol in Jamaica. They love him so much. The movie also blends the unique scenery of the country blended with all the talents on the movie.“
