Femi Branch Rants Nollywood Misrepresentation During Mark Zuckerburg’s Visit to Nigeria
Following Omotola Jalade’s rant on being excluded from the people who met Mark Zuckerberg, another actor Femi Branch is angry with the fact that musicians and comedians were addressed as major artistes during Mark Zuckerberg’s visit to Nigeria.
During the visit, the Facebook CEO met with a couple of Nollywood stars like Rita Dominic, Stephanie Linus, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Mildred Okwo and Kunle Afolayan, however in a video that was posted on social media about the visit, some of the faces spotted comedian Basketmouth, singers Yemi Alade and Chidinma, DJ Cuppy ,Toolz.
In a now deleted Instagram post, the actor commented on the video, “Was really pissed off at the way we misrepresent ourselves to foreigners sometimes. Imagine this fellow saying Here we have all the major Artistes”????? Seriously?!?! These are all the major stars in Nollywood?!?! And are Yemi Alade, Chidinma, Basketmouth and Co Nollywood Artistes?!?! This is really idiotic to say the least!!!”
