Veteran actor, Kanayo O Kanayo has said old Nollywood movies had better storytelling even though there was low technical support at the time.
The movie star made this known while reflecting on the current state of things in the movie industry in a recent Instagram post.
Kanayo had shared a throwback movie scene of himself and Charles Okafor, his colleague.
In a brief post accompanying the video, the actor wrote: “This period witnessed better storytelling, lower technical support.”
Kanayo made his acting debut in ‘Living in Bondage,’ a 1992 Nollywood classic.
The 59-year-old has established himself as a household name in the movie industry since then with several awards and recognition to his credit.
Kanayo had earlier slammed critics who taunted him for playing ritual roles in films.
“What’s the link between Kanayo O Kanayo and the role he played as Nicholas? There are certain questions people ask you all the time such that it looks as if these people don’t think,” he had said.
“Let gossipers be. They should go educate themselves. Even among Jesus’ disciples, Luke was a doctor. They all had what they were doing before they were called.
“You take up a role and interpret the script so well, only for viewers to ask if you truly do money rituals. What’s one’s business with that? What people should understand is I have a profession.”
