Lekan Ayinde, Manager of Wale Adenuga Production (WAP) has revealed that Nollywood is not filled with immorality nor vulgar as most people claims.
He said that the reality is that what people consider as overt exposures of female sexual appealing figures are really happening in our society.
“These exposures are not actually extreme. Besides, what we show in our films have global appeal that our government and regulatory agencies do not condemn. Government’s regulations support watching foreign films that show these so-called immoral things and this indirectly urge us to follow suit,’’ the manager said.

Ayinde added “It will be inconsiderate to ban our films for merely aligning with the things we see and watch in foreign movies. Those who feel that kissing and dressing to expose cleavages of women are not part of original cultures are old fashioned, mundane and outmoded in their thinking’’.
However, he urged professional theatre practitioners to come into the industry to enrich film-making. Nigerian film makers need to change their attitude and the way they respond to social challenges. They should also portray their views of society through the camera and theatre. Generally, our film and theatre industry is not doing badly compared to other developing economies”.
