    You are simply deranged. Hope you've taken ya pills today? Why are you here then on NR as a whole....Its a website primarily to discuss nollywood films, so if you hate the industry why bother joining such a forum in the first place?

    So if people proffer arguments that differ from yours...you just go off into some tirade that makes no sense?

    Sorrry oh...hope you feel better soonsmokin:

    TS & Peaches, I understand where both of you are coming from, I do.

    But TS, How would we, ordinary lay-men/women get our hands on these examples you're asking for outside of the products we see day in and day out? Unless I am an insider in Nollywood, I wouldnt be privy to this kind of information, but as a non-insider, what I do get to see is the products the industry churns out which if closer look is taken, tends to contain more films made by non-Yoruba/Hausa, etc producers. With that said, does it mean that there is a bias? Maybe.....does it mean that the Igbo moviemakers have their houses more in "order" than non-Igbo moviemakers? Maybe....

    good question!

    actually, i have no idea how you would get such examples.

    but until you CAN provide such examples, the kinda of specious argument presented by Peaches doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    you've basically admitted that as a layperson, you don't know what is really going on within the workings of Nollywood.

    you have no idea how to access that information.

    that's fine... there's really no reason why you should know.

    but by the same token, there's no reason why i or anybody else should take you seriously when you start crying about discrimination against non-Igbos within a system that you admitted you don't have any inside information about.

    see what i'm saying?

    Ah! Iya, ma a ti bere si n se epe yi o! Mo ma pe mo wa lara awon ti o jebi oro yi...but as now, this my addiction with these homvies have also been of great concern to me lately. I believe maybe it's because I have so much free time at my disposal now added to the fact that I get most of these movies at very cheap rate all coming in high quality DVD format is the main reason why my attempt to overcome the addiction has not been forth coming.

    I am hoping that as the coming months creeps in and may free time get cut out my prayers to overcome this addiction was be finally answered.

    Yoruba movies on the other hand which I would have loved to spend so much of my time with haven't been working with my system. Reason is because as you already know to much fetish ideas of all these mamalawo/bablawo's consultation have been getting so much in their attempt to bring out more intellectual storylines to feed ones mind. I find myself getting more and more paranoid day in day out each time I have spent watching our movies and that alone is not what I need to get by in this already dangerous world of ours.
