Controversial on-air personality, Daddy Freeze, has replied actor Desmond Elliot’s call for a ban on foreign movies in Nigeria.
In an interview, Elliot stated that the best way to grow Nollywood is to remove the competition it faces in Nigeria, that is by banning foreign movies on our televisions.
A lot of people have shared their views on the matter and Freeze has not been silent on the issue.
The OAP posted the video on his Instagram page and said that one should be able to watch whatever he wants if he can pay for it, therefore, banning foreign movies is not the way to go.
However, he suggested that people in the industry put in extra efforts to raise Nollywood’s standard to match that of Hollywood and then naturally people would pay more attention to them.
Daddy freeze responses:
Dear Brother Desmond, I love you, but I’m not with you on this. I should be able to choose what I want to watch if I’m paying for it, shouldn’t I?”
“Why don’t you strive to raise Nollywood to Hollywood standards and then people will gravitate towards Nollywood naturally?”
