Chioma Grace, the Nigerian actress, has bemoaned the falling standards of the Nigerian Movie Industry known as Nollywood, which she blamed on hate, envy, jealousy and excessive competition.
Chioma was apparently pleased with the fact that Nigerian musicians were at the forefront of the fight for the release of two Nigerian musicians arrested in Uganda.
She commended them for showing so much love to their fellow musicians’ ordeal and wondered if the same could be replicated in the Nollywood.
According to Chioma Grace, Nollywood is drawing back because of several divisions within the system that does not pave the way for unity to prevail, adding that everyone seems to be looking out for an opportunity to run another one down.
Chioma Grace who bared it all on the happenings in the Nollywood reckons that love is the unbeatable goal in life, something the Nigerian musicians exhibited when their colleagues were handicapped.
She shared these sentiments in an Instagram post. She wrote;
“Dear music legends in Nigeria this love you’re sharing can you extend it to Nollywood? Cos hate, envy, competition and jealousy have killed us. Nollywood is drawing back because of too many divisions, unions, organizations etc. NO UNITY, NO LOVE, NO SINCERITY OF PURPOSE! Everybody wants an opportunity to run a smear campaign about the other. The women in Nollywood are so competitive that they care less about love, the goal is whose nyash go big pass the other or who got hour glass shape than the other, or which babe is more trendy! It’s so terrible that we have put vanity before humanity…. Nollywood we got a lot to learn from the music industry if we must go far… LOVE remains the unbeatable goal in LIFE”.
The show of concern by the Nigerian musicians was really commendable and deserves praise.
