VIDEO: Nollywood movie producers pirate their own movies for quick money – Tonto Dikeh

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh in her interview with Plus TV, revealed that some Nollywood movie producers pirate their own movies for quick money.

Revealing that some Nollywood movie producers pirate their own movies for quick money, Tonto Dikeh said in the interview;

“It is so deep that the truth is, it is these same producers, directors, marketers that are now the ones pirating their own movies. There was a time i overheard a conversation between producers saying instead of ‘me losing out, let me go and pirate my movies myself so i can cash out myself if i don’t make enough from the original copies’.

See, the pirates on the streets, we sell the access to them from the inside, so if we are fighting corruption, we need to fight it from the inside first. If we can stop this from inside, the ones outside too will stop. The ones doing it to themselves need to stop, you can’t be fighting what you are instigating”

Speaking further, she said “Nollywood is in a good place but it can be in a better place if it has sponsors, more commitment, more cash, more commitment, more support.”

On her sudden disappearance from the movie industry, she said “I haven’t retired, the truth is I have played every role there is. There isn’t much challenge anymore.

I have about just two or three movies that make go wow, I want to be in this. There is no action, no adrenaline rush when watching Nollywood movies, it is just the same pictures, stories, scenes, environment, we don’t have location“

She further said “Different things actually come into place on why I haven’t been on the screen today, I haven’t found the perfect script that I want to act in.

“I want to watch a movie i star in and hear my voice and not know it is my voice..we need to train ourselves and be more and i think I am one of the few people that have attained that more….”

When asked why she isn’t producing her own movies to prove that she is indeed not in the league of the modern Nollywood producers, Tonto Dikeh said “Producing is not something i love, it is not for everybody, i am more good in acting but producing is not my thing but Geneveive Nnaji has made me understand that now with Lion heart.”

  1. Greetings! Very helpful advice within this article! It is the little changes that will make the
    biggest changes. Thanks a lot for sharing! Hi there just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be
    running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post
    to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue
    solved soon. Kudos I have been browsing online more than 2 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you create this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to find
    out where u got this from. thank you

  3. Excellent beat ! I wish to apprentice whilst you amend your site, how can i subscribe for a weblog
    web site? The account helped me a applicable deal.
    I had been tiny bit familiar of this your broadcast provided shiny transparent

  4. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all
    is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

  5. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I
    will try to get the hang of it!
