Desmond Elliot said in an interview with Hip TV that for the Nollywood industry to grow, the Nigerian government will have to ban foreign content. He said they should make foreign content difficult to enter the country so our own content can grow. His comment about the foreign content ban has been criticised by most Nigerians.

He didn’t only ask for the ban of foreign content, he said that the content is a product that must be treated like rice importation. Nigerians have decided that his request was impractical and have taken to Twitter to air their views.

Some of the opinions are below:
