The growing collaboration between Nollywood and Hollywood in film making has been described as a healthy development for the evolving entertainment industry in Nigeria.
The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Agility Onwura, made the statement in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria at the weekend.
“Before now, our popular music stars have been collaborating with singers from other parts of the world, extending it to film making is very good for Nollywood. The recognition Nollywood stars and films are now receiving globally is commendable because the quality of our films has international standards.
“The growing Nollywood-Hollywood collaboration has made it possible for some of our movie stars to feature in films with some of America’s best artistes. The collaborations within the entertainment industry have given our artistes global recognition and acceptance,’’ he said.
