Yoruba movie is more meaningful than English movies which makes no sense. why must we use a borrowed language to expressed our self unlike the Indians they use their language and are more popular so let us make use of our dialect and grow and not someone else language.

Uche Jombo has finally broken the silent.  English and Yoruba Nollywood accord each other on who will respect who. . The eloquent English speaker spoke to THE REPORTER on the vexing issue, at the last BON award, after an ego flaunting incident had occurred between the Yoruba and English actors/actresses, who were at Ijebu- Ode and Abeokuta for the award ceremony.

“Organizers said I should speak on behalf of Nollywood.So I refused to speak at the thank-you dinner. I am too young to speak for this industry that is how I was brought up by the elders in the industry. I am not scared of speaking in public but I won’t allow myself to be pushed around. How could somebody just call me in the middle of an event to perform such a task I won’t allow such person to get to my tangent.”


 

You talked about the ego thing or the lack of respect that is between Yoruba speaking and English speaking acts. As long as I am concerned, the reverse is the case. This is because; I never watch their movies, since I don’t understand their language. The few I recognize, I greet them when I see them. But when most of them (Yoruba actors) see us (English Speaking actors) they always put up this attitude that says we must be the first to greet them. And so long as I am concerned, they do not respect us at all.” They think they are better than us. Our (English Nollywood) Industry is popular in other countries; theirs (Yoruba Nollywood) is popular only but in Nigeria, western part of Nigeria to speak out loud. Why are they so proud? I am not a hater but nobody should push me so hard; Said Uche.





"Why Should The Nigerian Movie Industry Be As An Environment Where People Rob Shoulders With Others? The Major Setback We Have In Nigeria Today Is, We Apply Irrational And Unnecessary Politics In Everything We Do. If Only Nigeria Would Do Without Senseless Politics For Just A Second, We Shall All Get Along Well; Culture, Religion And Ethnicity Regardless, We Are Nigerians"

I guess this is part of the cold rivalry between the Yoruba and Igbo in Lagos.However the fact remains that i have seen Americans watching English speaking Nigerian movies here in the states and not Yoruba movies which portray elements of immorality and fetishists.

She is not right but absolutely damn wrong, she is embittered, jealous, i seems not to know her problem, what kind of popularity was she talking about? popularity ko! stupidilarity ni!  let her go and act in her own native language as well if she is uncomfortable with yoruba film successes. yoruba actors start video and tv film production in Nigeria years back even when she was still a kid 'girl' and the yoruba actors should be given kudos, thumb-up for that wonderful feet. i cherished my culture and i won't in any way allow anybody where ever you may come from undermined my 'culture' because its a cherished heritage (ohun ani la naani). So miss jumbo or jombo go get a life. ok

Let us know that if we want progress we should be talking of English movies that the outside world can understand and not Youroba language which stops in the West. The youroba movies are funny but if you dont understand Youroba language you cant enjoy it and it wont go beyond Nigeria which is not a credit but a local champion movie.
You're right

It is beyond the border,they watch yoruba movies in Benin Republic,Togo and most of west Africa countries and even in state(,U.S )because it is subtittle in English.Benin Rep. and Togo are having their own Yoruba,they called them Anago.

She's stupid. Does she have movies made for her tribe? The normal Nigerian movie is for everyone, it's only Yorubas and Hausas that have their movies and is well known to them. If everyone can speak yoruba, i think it'll be more famous.
