Movie producers are tarnishing Nigeria’s image with their storylines – Yul Edochie

Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has sent a strong message to movie providers in Nigeria.

According to the preacher, the storylines that these movie producers churn out are tarnishing the image of the country abroad.

Furthermore, Edochie urged that the producers must stop making movies that project Nigerians as clowns and uncivilised when they travel abroad.

The preacher advised the producers to shift from making Nigerians look like clowns to making them solution-bringers and leaders when they travel abroad.

On his Instagram page, Edochie wrote, “I wish our producers will stop making films where Nigerians travel abroad, dey mumu. We sell ourselves short with such storylines.

“Oyibo people will never make a movie where a white man is foolish on African soil. Instead, they’ll make the white man smarter than all the Africans in the movie.

“It’s intentional. They use movies to sell themselves as superheroes, while we use ours to run ourselves down.

“Let’s make movies where a Nigerian goes abroad and becomes the focal point for Oyibo people.

“He or she always walks with shoulders high, with so much pride and dignity. Always on Nigerian wears. And teaches Oyibo people beautiful things they never knew about us. Offers traditional solutions to problems and becomes a leader over there.

“Let’s sell ourselves as superheroes as well.”
