“All we needed was improve our content value – but Oyibo people come here come deceive us,” read Dickson Iroegbu’s latest campaign post.
Iroegbu took to his Facebook page to share his latest thoughts regarding the election.
My creative colleagues, all we needed was improve our content value – but Oyibo people come here come deceive us – we begin answer Nollywood, and we got ourselves distracted with wanting to be like Hollywood – how can you compare both?
We shoot a complete movie with $50000 or $100000, and you wanna compare it with a $100000000 film? How?
Friends we have been conned! We must arise and reclaim our craft – improve on it, stay focused, and unanimously articulate and pursue for an act of the National Assembly protecting film business in Nigeria.
Nollywood Rebirth is Possible, he wrote.
Iroegbu is popular for movies like “Women’s Cot,” “Holy Cross,” “Romantic Attraction,” among others.
The filmmaker is competing with other veterans Lancelot Imaseun and Fred Amata for the position, which is currently occupied by Andy Amenechi.
The election is scheduled to hold on February 26, 2016.
