Multiple Award winning Actress, Producer and Singer, Stella Damasus addresses statements made by Ghanian Filmmaker Leila Djansi about the Nigerian Motion Picture Industry dubbed Nollywood.

“I don’t think those people, the new crop of filmmakers should be put under the umbrella of Nollywood,” said Djansi in an interview granted to actor Jimmy Jean Louis for his documentary ‘Jimmy Goes to Nollywood.’ “They should be called independent film(makers) because a name carries a lot. If you start tagging it “Nollywood,” every negative connotation that comes with Nollywood, it’s like calling your son Hitler.”
