Its the same people who started doing Igbo movies that now do films in nollywood...they probably saw it more commercially rewarding to do english movies than igbo movies...some have tried since the inception of nollywood, maybe it didnt really yield returns...i have seen adverts of some like "Odeshi, Ikuku and so on....and most recently 'captain" with Nkem Owoh.
Just finished watching IKUKU actually and it really is a brilliant script (written by Nkem Owoh). I really think that Igbo language films should be resurrected or is it resucitated? A good story, good casting/acting will sell, anytime anyday in whatever language. Case in point, MADAM DEAREST
