Veteran Nollywood actor Zack Orji says stakeholders in the Nigerian movie industry are working towards improving the technical quality of Nollywood products.
Orji told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Tuesday that the stakeholders in the industry were constantly looking to improve the quality of performance art, including music and motion picture.
“We are already paying more attention but these things take some time.
“It’s not an overnight thing; it takes a while to build up; and don’t forget we all have our strong points; South Africa has its strong points.
“When you come to media, when you come to the technical aspect of motion picture production, South Africa is there.
“When you come to performance art, Nigeria is there.
“So every country has its strong points; when we see works coming from other African countries that are better than ours, we strive to gravitate towards that level.
“And it’s already happening not only in the motion picture industry, it’s also happening in the music industry.
“So it’s not going to be an overnight thing, but we are definitely working towards it.’’
NAN reports that Orji has been a front runner in Nollywood since the early 1990s.
He has featured in numerous movies since then. (NAN)
