Nollywood actress, Osita Iheme has revealed the struggle in the movie industry.
Osita Iheme better known as Paw Paw in a recent interview with a correspondent revealed the major problem bothering the Nigerian film industry.
According to the Abia born actor, Nollywood lacks a dedicated distribution network.
38-year-old Iheme noted that the lack is responsible for the thriving abilities of pirates in the industry.
The actor further called on Nigerian creatives, producers, and investors to inaugurate distribution networks platforms across the country to help curb movie piracy.
“We need a distribution network, we are lacking so much on there, a lot of Nigerians who are in the creative sector are creators, but when you create your contents you don’t have any place to distribute you get limited with online.
“We need to have distribution outlets all over the country and I am calling for all of our people who are in the creative sector.
Even if you are a producer to start creating a distribution outlet, that is the way to go.
Anybody can come up to create something but everybody cannot have a distribution network because it takes dedication, money, and management to handle that, we need to go into that.”
Osita Iheme has starred in over a hundred movies and is one of the most popular faces in Nollywood.
“We need to start accessing movies, music, once you come out of your house.
You need to be able to access it the way you access recharge card, recharge card is not only selling online.
But that is also the way we will make much money and this ‘Big Boys’ will find it worthy to come into it because when you can come out from your house you don’t need to start buying data to activate Youtube to start accessing this services, the market is huge and not everyone can access data let’s tell ourselves the truth.”
