Since the news of the Federal Government scrapping the Kano Film Village project broke last week, several people have aired their opinions about the matter and director of Callywood, Egor Efiok is the latest to give hers.
Egor said in an email to Laila that the newly established Callywood needs the N3 billion initially allocated for the film village.
“(Dear Nigerian people), we should learn to respect other people’s religious views and cultures. It does not matter how many billions the Federal Government want to invest in the state of art film village in Kano.
The people of Kano State have rejected it because their culture does not support it…please respect that and stop berating the president for bowing to pressure to scrap the idea. Dem say dem nor want…na by force?
The Federal Government should please invest those billions in Callywood instead…we want am…we need am…no need to fight mbok…just come to Callywood…you’d be welcomed with open arms. Ehen ??”
