    Just because Mr Ogedemgbe comes from Edo state does not necessarily mean that he is edo.His name clearly says he is a yoruba, and he calls himself that.

    To BB who called the name of AZIZAT SADIQ as one of the non igbo actresses used in the EMG sector, when was the last time she was seen in an EMG homvie?2 - 3 years ago?
    Didn't i see a post from moviewizard, a while ago,that the EMG marketers have vowed never to use her just because she featured in SITANDA?MW can correct me on that.

    To the folks who say that the yoruba performers are griping about tribalism, no they are not.They are just stating what obtains in the industry, when asked by journalist. Or else they would've kept quiet about it and get on with what they are doing in the YMG sector they operate in.
    And to chi who says that yoruba artists are in misery, NO THEY ARE NOT. Artists who are in perpetual misery don't make great homvies for their audiences to watch.I just want to clear that from the air.

    If you folks don't want to hear about this issue any longer,then pray that the journalists stop asking this question when they interview yoruba or any other performers that are non-igbo.

    Tribalism is ugly,alright.I can understand why some folks are trying to deny it's non-existent in the EMG sector,but it is there for all to see.

    I haven't been insulting to any other member participating in this tribalism issue till now,have i?If you see any post where i was hauling insults to another member,then point it out to me.I am already making the effort,bro,as a moderator.But that does not mean that i can't put my views forward strongly,which i did in all my posts,so far.And that is,"Tribalism is very rampant in the nollywood EMG sector".

    The folks denying any trace of tribalism being perpetuated by the EMG marketers on non igbo performers in this discussion.I don't need to name names.

    I did say that cos she said that in an interview in true love mag, she says the marketers have refused to use her cos they havent given their blessings to the amstel malta box office show, apparently they expect some sort of acknowledgement or some credence and some of them feel since the ambo crew feel they can start making people stars (which the marketers feel they only can do since they have always been),they say to themselves, "lets see how they would become stars with just one film"...but the thing is she isnt wallowing in that, she is still doing her stuff, no matter how hard she is on tv series and maybe some people would signify interest in using her, nollywood's problem is beyond tribalism, more like egoism, ignorance and lack of training.

    just out of curiosity: do you endorse the idea that the YMG sector is the wonderfully idyllic world of equality that it is painted as, too?

    No,it has it's own issues,too.Nothing nigerians do will ever get close to being ideal,but atleast,it is much more tolerant and open to other ethnic tribes,as long as they have the mastery of the language used to tell stories,which is yoruba.

    I have no way of knowing such an actress,samira.Maybe if you go through all the screenshots of actresses that i uploaded in the gallery,you might see her, because no actress that i have put in my avatar till now is not in the gallery.

    i've seen this particular sentiment lobbed about a few times in this discussion, but never any real evidence to support it, though...

    What sentiment?That YMG is more open?To see the evidence,you will need to see yoruba flicks.But it is really true,there is no doubt about it.
    If you like, i can reel out a long list of non yoruba performers who get leading roles(not just any role) in YMG flicks.
