Nollywood prolific filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan raised the issue of piracy yesterday nad mentioned that Igbo businessmen affiliated to film industry are responsible for the pirated copies of Nollywood films, which has affected producers financially.
However, in a sharp response to his comment, top actress/producer, Uche Jombo-Rodriguez stated that piracy is not a tribal thing, as every filmmaker is affected and sad about it. Instead of tongue lashing a particular tribe, Mrs. Rodriguez urged that everyone should fight and hope to win the war against piracy one day.
Every film maker is sad abt piracy..its a war we should all fight and hope to win one day but I repeat #piracyIsNotATribalThing.
