Piracy impacted negatively on movie productions in Nollywood

Award winning actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, says the activities of pirates, has impacted negatively on movie productions in Nollywood.
“The Nigerian movie industry is blossoming with a production rate of about 50 movies weekly, however the potential of the fast growing industry is hampered by impostors and pirates,” Ibu told reporters.

Okafor said that the efforts put into writing and production of movies by actors and actresses are jeopardised by those engaged in piracy.

He attributed the challenge of piracy in the industry to bad eggs in the post production stage who undermine the efforts of the artistes.

The famous actor, however, said that he would not be deterred by the actions of ‘unscrupulous’ individuals or groups.

Okafor, who has over 350 movies to his credit, urged everyone involved in film production and management in Nigeria to strive to protect the industry while it is still possible.

“Despite being a manager of football players and also trying my hands in boxing, acting in Nollywood is what I am destined to do.
“If it dies my destiny as well as many others will die,” he said.

Okafor is considered to be one of Nigeria’s most talented comic characters.

His humorous acting is often characterised by stupidity, hilarious imbecility and a sharp disconnection from reality.

Some of his movies include Mr.Ibu, Mr.Ibu in London, Police Recruit, 9 Wives, Ibu in Prison and Keziah.
