Over the weekend, there was an on-line story purporting that film producers and marketers in Nigerian have decided to ban Ghanaian movies in Nigeria.
Considering the wild nature of the story, we decided to find out the truth and not the fact as spread by those websites. In a chit-chat with Segun Arinze live this morning on GhanaSuperStars.Com, the President of Nigeria’s Actors Guild, repudiated the story with utmost crestfallen at such a sham publication.
Segun Arinze hissed that Nigeria can never and will never have any unfriendly rivalry with Ghana. “We have created a very good relationship with Ghanaians and nothing will ever let us have a break up. The story is absolutely bunkum!” – He said.
“My only advice to journalist is that they should be very careful with the way they spread false news since this statement they have released about Nigerian banning Ghanaian movies can cause state problems. I plead on behalf of Nigerians that Ghanaians shouldn’t take any statement of Ghana/Nigeria rival serious until they hear it from some of us” – he lamented to GhanaSuperStars.Com
He added that they are busy working on Nollywood at 20 and they believe in enterprise so banning Ghanaian movies in Nigeria will not profit them in any sense but rather limit their market scope. Folks, your most reliable GhanaSuperStars.com has done the right journalistic ethic for your consumption but the puzzling questions that are crying for answers are; where could this story be coming from? Could it be from the camp of film producers in Ghana or Nigeria and what reason (s) could that be? Share your thought.
