    Your sources are right! After being turned down some 50 times at auditions, I am still hopeful - you know they say, it's not over until it's over. I know my time will come and i'm hopeful that Tade will come through for me and cast me as a lead character in his upcoming flick. Surely that should get me the Dudu Osun endorsement i've been so craving for and maybe finally it will the chanting of Peaches, we love you from my fans all over the world that we will hear. Pray for me bro, I say pray for me!:bouncy

    My friend, you have to admit that this is like saying that all businesses are open to all. Anyone who experiences bias, racism, religious discrimination, ethnic jingoism in any industry should just go and set up their own. That, to me, is a method of dodging the issue and refusing to own up to a problem. Is there a problem with systematic discrimination, or is there not? That should be the question answered. Again, keep in mind that I do not believe commercial video producers should be saddled with the burden of making sure every group feels represented in their work. I think that's a silly concept. I do find it equally silly that we just dismiss people's claims that the majority of English-language Nollywood movies are produced by Igbo marketers who systematically exclude other groups. If this were a discussion on politics, I don't think there would be any disagreement that a disproportionate amount of military leaders from northern Nigeria have led the country for most of its existence. Likewise, we probably would not disagree that Yoruba musicians are disproportionately represented among Nigerian musicians with worldwide audiences. Let's have an honest analysis about the Nigerian movie industry that's not driven by ethnic sentiment, and see if the numbers are similar.

    Good reasoning Alaaworan. The problem with us Nigerians is that we have so imbibed these persecution mentality, that it has now become impossible for us to make constructive observations about ourselves without it being read as further persecution. Even where the reasons abound to be so naturally protective of one's own, efforts should still be made to at least ensure the allegations are no more than mere allegations by giving the benefit of the doubt. Its one of the reasons why Nigeria is the way Nigeria is...we can't talk without trading blows. We can't talk...really talk.

    humm ... i never knew this thread had gone that far and as usual the same old song repeated and even if the igbo's have gone tribal and so what the yoruba's would have done the same if they were at the helm of affairs. It's so easy to see the speck in someone elses eyes ....what about Mount Zion ministry that have been able to penetrate and gotten a niche in the market. how many igbo's ,delta's or other tribes have you seen appearing in their movies ???? .. hasn't it been a yoruba affair , the artiist used in those movies are their acting impeccable ..NO.. ...can we find the chiege's there YES..... is it because it's skewed towards religion and so no finger should point back.. and in the soap we have the same going on the wale adenuga plays (super story) they should not be excluded.... but i choose to overlook the tribal sentiment... yes i will say it again the yoruba's would be found guity if they had more production outfit and if they were into the english form
