Nollywood Actor, IK Ogbonna, believes the relationship between the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood, and their Ghanaian counterparts, Ghollywood, is very tightly-bounded and should be called ‘Onewood’ instead.
Ogbonna added that there is hardly a difference between the two countries and the Ghanaians are like brothers.
“Sometimes you forget the difference between Ghana and Nigeria, it’s just a thin line,” the actor told Channels Television.
Ogbonna stars in new comedy movie, ‘Ghana Must Go’, a collaboration between Nollywood and Ghollywood.
The movie, written by Tunde Babalola, revolves around two young lovers who are of Nigerian and Ghanaian origin.
The movie derived its title from a carrier bag which became famous in the 80’s when millions of unregistered immigrants in Nigeria, mostly Ghanaians, were asked to leave the country.
Nollywood actor, Joseph Benjamin, has advised fans to allow the lives of celebrities to remain private.
Speaking with Channels Television Entertainment News, he said that most celebrities do not enjoy the criticisms or scandalous comments about them, “Everything that concerns us is personal and should remain private, we are human beings and are sensitive.
“We spend our time and talents entertaining you, what we expect in return is love, support and constructive criticism, not to rundown the brand because it affects you as a person psychologically.”
The Nollywood star also encouraged his colleagues going into politics but noted that he has no interest in joining the bandwagon, rather he would be further building his grip on the entertainment business.
He revealed that he would be going into music soon and fans should watch out for him, “The music side of Benjamin will be unveiled soon” he stated.
Joseph Benjamin also revealed that he is currently working on a movie but producing “is still in the offing, you all should stay glued.”
