    Wow...lovely thread and peaches as usual did her thing...but i am feeling you and Omonaija2006...your points were solidgrinning: .......kikiss, i understood your point too grinning: as he could have said it far better than he did. He sounded a bit bitter. But overall, to me he stated a fact that is so true...when you are watching the movies as a foriegner and it is called 'Nigerian' movie, you only get to see the igbo tribe and culture and not all other tribes in Nigeria...and that is misleading...

    What I do not understand though is why don't the Yoruba's also come up with their movies in English? I think their movies are probably not selling as much as the Igbo's simply because theirs is in their language and most people will prefer to watch the english speaking movies as compared to having it in yoruba. I enjoyed watching a few of the yoruba movies but straining my myself to read those subtitles became a turn off for me in the end and so I do not watch them anymore.

    To me, the Igbo-English movies are just what they are....and that is english speaking movies and so I do not see them as english actors. That is even ridiculous of him to say that..And for his statement as to what contitues an African movie, the igbo's are also Africans and so I do not see his point there. It is still an African movie although it fully represents the igbo tribe....

    i remember when i first started watching the movies, i honestly thought Omot was igbo too as I was not familiar with the names and could not tell from her name that she was Yoruba. It appears to me that the Igbo's prefer to do their own thing and so why doen'st the yoruba's also come up with theirs?

    There are some of the igbo movies that I have watched so far that had other tribes in them though....one of my best movies to date is 'the outsider' and it was about the igbo's and yoruba's although it was clearly an igbo movie....

    Ignoring every other utterance...

    NO, I don't watch 'Yoruba' movies... I watch Nigerian movies in Yoruba language. Nope I am not going to give you a list of Nigerian Movies in Yoruba language that I have watched. Whether you believe this or not isn't going to change the fact. :)

    Peaches, do not assume (authoritatively) that someone is a proponent of tribalism, not Kosher. :) In my definition (which I believe is very accurate) A Nigerian film is a film made by Nigerians, irrespective of the location, language, theme or ethnic group. When I said I love Nigerian films, it simply means I love Nigerian films, there is nothing beyond that.

    All these EMG, IMG, YMG KMG, HMG, EFMG, IJAWMG, IBBIBIOMG, KKKMG BBCMG JJJMG QQQMG WWWMG KWARIKWATAMG OKOTIIMG OLOSHIMG are the most ridiculous, most repulsive, most repugnant, most unreasonable, most inaccurate, most despicable, most deplorable, most atrocious and most offensive terms in the history of literature, English language and the history of Nigeria. :1087:

    Who the heck came up with those things? :confused:
