Nigerian film-maker and actor, Saheed Balogun has accused the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration of treating Nigerian entertainers like School Children.
Vanguard reported that he recounted his losses in a recent interview with Potpourri and laid criticisms that the former president romanced Nollywood for his selfish interests.He said,
There was a time I produced a movie and it was pirated within days. It’s like the Pirates have their own copies. We’re still looking for who leaked it, but we don’t know yet. I lost over N15 million on that project. I’m still motivated to do more because it’s my dream. Soon, change will come to this country. Goodluck Jonathan treated entertainers like School Children. The last government was hosting us as if they were hosting birthday parties for kids.
Saheed Balogun also urged newly elected and re-elected lawmakers to pass appropriate bills on piracy before their tenure expires.
