Nollywood actor cum politician, Desmond Elliot has called for the ban of foreign movies in Nigeria to enable the growth of the Nigerian Movie Industry.
Nigerians are attacking him for making this call. Various social media platforms are awash with users venting anger on Desmond Elliot.
The 45-year-old representing Surulere constituency at the Lagos State house of assembly said this in an interview with HIPTV, as he spoke on the current situation of the country’s Movie Industry.
