Nollywood actress Lilian Bach used to be a constant face in Nollywood movies until she decided to take a break from the industry.
The actress who also started producing movies revealed during an interview with Punch that the prevalence of piracy was what drove her away from the industry.
“I purposely took a break from doing movies. I became a producer and I wanted to be doing my own movies but piracy couldn’t allow me. In Nollywood, experience is actually the best teacher; nobody really tells you the truth. You have to go through the experience to find out what others are suffering from. We cannot continue to ignore the fact that piracy has been trying to bring the industry down. That was why I took a break. I couldn’t continue producing movies without recouping my money. It is not a good thing.”
Lilian implored the government to enforce stricter laws for the punishment of pirates.
“We need a lasting solution to this problem, otherwise there will no longer be Nollywood because we are really going down. We are hoping the new government will have the time and come out with a stricter punishment to those who do the act,” she said.
