Reno Omokri Explains How Nollywood Destroyed Nigeria's Image

Reno Omokri has blamed Nollywood films for the bad image Nigeria has in the world .

Naija News NG reports that the Amazon Best Seller disclosed this yesterday, June 8 on his official Twitter page.

He said his tour of many African and Caribbean nations made him understand that people are more afraid of Nigerians as fetish people than 419 people. This is because of the too much juju (voodoo) they see in Nollywood films.

He blamed the country’s film industry for painting a bad picture of the country.

Taking to his page on Twitter, Reno Omokri wrote the following;

“I have been to many African and Caribbean countries. Once they know you are Nigerian, many become wary. Not because of 419. But because of juju. Nollywood has conditioned them to see all Nigerians as fetish juju people. We did this to ourselves!”

In a followup tweet, Reno also shared an experience he had while walking in San Francisco with Kanayo O. Kanayo.
