Popular Nollywood actor, Kanayo O Kanayo has taken to social media to suggest that filmmakers use more realistic settings in their films.

He recommended filmmakers to avoid portraying affluent folks in traditional clothes or excessive makeup in everyday settings.

According to the actor, many directors are unaware that their films influence people’s culture and traditions.

Kanayo also observed that affluent individuals frequently dress informally, with their costly watches, sneakers, and T-shirts being more identifiable than traditional clothes.

He urged his colleagues to develop more credible and realistic films in order to strengthen the business and obtain an international reputation.

Sharing the video he wrote;

“Many Nollywood Producers paint the wrong picture of dressing/Makeup in the movies, all in the name of fine picture. IT’S MISLEADING. The reality is that many practitioners have not realised that film making is part of AGENDA SETTING in national development especially the culture and tradition of the people. The rich most times dress casually. Many are known by their expensive wrist watches, footwear, T-shirt NOT AGBADA.

“How can a man be resting in his house, lying on the Sofa fully dressed? How can a woman be adorned with full makeup while cooking? Most of the ladies sleep with their wigs on, with applied full facial foundation. Ahhhhhhhĥh. WHO DOES THAT? Dear colleagues, let’s watch it.”
