Nollywood actress and movie producer, Omoni Oboli has lamented about how some people won’t go to cinema to watch her movies but want to take pictures with her.
Omoni Oboli, who has reportedly raked in N161m from Okafor’s Law and Wives On Strike, said she can not understand people who want to take photos with you but won’t go to the cinema to see her movies.
Some people really don’t know how to talk or they just feel like they don’t care. Sometimes, people say stuff like ‘I don’t watch Nollywood films.’ ‘Why should I pay to see your film?’ ‘How can I come to the cinema to watch home video?’
I’m like ‘it’s not home video, there’s a difference.’ There are some made for cinema Nigerian movies and there are home video movies. So, if you’re watching it in the cinema, it’s a made for cinema Nigerian film.
It’s quite difficult convincing some people. Some people have their minds made up, there’s nothing you’re going to say to them. They won’t watch your movie. Some of those people, after not watching your film, will want to take a picture with you.
