Yul Edochie Replies Reno Omokri For Saying Nollywood Has Made People Wary Of Nigerians
Nollywood actress, Yul Edochie has replied Reno Omokri after he tweeted in a post that Nollywood movies make people from other countries see Nigerians in a bad light.
According to him, many Africans and Caribbeans becomes wary when they realize someone is Nigerian because Nollywood has conditioned them to think Nigerians are fetish.
“I have been to many African and Caribbean countries. Once they know you are Nigerian, many become wary. Not because of 419. But because of juju. Nollywood has conditioned them to see all Nigerians as fetish juju people. We did this to ourselves!”
He wrote in another tweet that he was once with actor Kanayo O Kanayo and an American walked towards them. Reno Omokri thinking she wanted a picture brought out his phone and the woman had screamed that they wanted to use her photo for juju.
Reacting to the tweets, Yul Edochie argued that the fear of Nigerians didn’t cone from Nollywood or the entertainment industry but the poor state of the country.
“Speak with foreign investors, their fear is the failing economy of Nigeria, the insecurity and the fact that Govt can wake up any day and make a law that can cripple all their investments without thinking twice. Their fear is not the stories from Nollywood films.”
He continued; “Past leaders failed to fix the country, you all turn around to blame Nollywood for it. All the gun violence movies you watch from America has it stopped you from applying for American visa, neither have the kung fu movies stopped you from going to China. It’s all entertainment.”
