My Fear For Nollywood - Nollywood Superstar, Jim Iyke Speaks Up

My Fear For Nollywood - Nollywood Superstar, Jim Iyke Speaks Up (Updated: 10 months ago)


James Ikechukwu Esomugha, the very popular actor more commonly known as Jim Iyke, has shared with Saturday Sun some of the things he believes will help improve the Nigerian movie industry.

According to the thespian, who just bounced back to the industry after a brief hiatus, actors need financial experts and lawyers that understand the nitty-gritty of the job.

Hear him: “We need to be careful because this industry is getting bigger by the day. So many international giants are coming to not properly partner with us, not giving us our due, and leaving nothing to our legacy but just want to take our content without due returns.

"So, we need financial experts on board, we need to deliberately begin to engage entertainment lawyers that understand the nuances, that can read between the lines and write our contracts properly because the negotiating power is with us, and if we lose it, we will leave no proper legacy for the generation to follow and that, more than anything else, is what concerns and disturbs me at this point.”

Comparing the Nollywood of yesteryears and that of today, Jim Iyke listed certain grey areas that can be improved upon.

“As an establishment, the financial institutions, the leadership, and the government are yet to take their place in Nollywood. I think that’s where it’s falling short.”
