”Some people really don’t know how to talk or they just feel like they don’t care. Sometimes, people say stuff like ‘I don’t watch Nollywood films.’ ‘Why should I pay to see your film?’ ‘How can I come to the cinema to watch home video?’
I’m like ‘it’s not home video, there’s a difference.’ There are some made for cinema Nigerian movies and there are home video movies. So, if you’re watching it in the cinema, it’s a made for cinema Nigerian film.
It’s quite difficult convincing some people. Some people have their minds made up, there’s nothing you’re going to say to them. They won’t watch your movie. Some of those people, after not watching your film, will want to take a picture with you.”
Nollywood actress and film maker Omoni Oboli has been in the limelight for as long as we can remember, She is one actress that transitioned from being an act to calling the shots in film making and has been successful at it.
The mother of three boys has some really great cinema films under her belt that did extremely well, breaking box office records.
