The major themes of the Nigerian movie industry when it kicked off about 20 years ago were romance, witchcraft, ritualism and greed. The theme today is pathetic. Fans of the Nollywood movies are now compelled to watch immoral and obscene movies which are strange to the African norms and culture.
Surveys taken recently show that pornographic movies are taking over Nollywood at an exponential rate. Those that have been painstakingly following the development in the industry should have noticed the degree of nudity in the Nollywood movies. It’s disheartening that Nollywood actors are now venturing into these kinds of movies.
Until recently, the production of such movies was thriving in Ghana. This was responsible for the popularity of the Ghanaian movie industry in Nigeria since Nigerians fell in love with such movies. Today, Nollywood has embraced the act and are now leading the way with the production of pornographic films.
