Actress and producer, Tolulope Oke, has stressed that the Nigerian movie industry should be more than the promotion of black magic.
The actress further said that though the aforementioned should not be undermined, voodoo scenes usually give people some wrong impressions.
Oke said “There are some perspectives that should be changed in the storylines. The black magic aspects give people some wrong impression that anything can happen.
“In the real sense of it, selling our culture makes us unique, but it should be done appropriately. Our culture should be projected positively. We’re not only about black magic.”
The actress further revealed that her new film titled, Cookie Spot, teaches hope and inspires the audience that they can make it despite all the odds.
“I believe in hope, and I tried to project life and its possibilities. The film is a story of survival wherever one finds oneself. There is always a means of survival. It would challenge every young lady out there to have a strong will to succeed against all the odds in life,” she added.
The actress also noted that the Nigerian movie industry is now on the world map. “Nigerians in the diaspora can watch movies without getting CDs. Several platforms help people showcase their talents.”
