We really need to stop spreading this falsehood that Nollywood has always told one kind of story; it’s an exhibition of ignorance of our own film tradition. Right from inception, Nollywood has always told different kinds of stories.
Core Nollywood is a commercial filmmaking tradition. It makes no pretences about being otherwise. It will always move towards films that may make money. This is a valid aspiration and we need to stop apologising for it.
