  1. all this things you mentioned very funny, but what is most hilarious is the fact that you that is criticizing Nollywood movies should be mindful of the things you say so that others will not criticize you, there is a saying that says, if you tell someone to take is time, look at the remaining fingers direction pointing towards you. You said 15 funny things and you only put up 12, so now who is more careless?

  2. its simply our own way of doing things, let’s try and encourage ourselves so that we’l get there in no time. for me all these points u made does not justify the fact that our nollywood is not trying. how are you sure that you wnt do the worst when giving the opportunity to direct or act. forget critizn and encourage them!

  3. All u said is true jare, what is worth Doin at all is worth Doin well. after all they are making money from it, we are d ones buying their movies nd we nid to complain wen we see sumfin bad.

  4. i always thought of these scenes too…
