We have put together a list of notable accidents in Nollywood that could have been avoided if there was a professional stunt man was on set. Nollywood do not see it as a problem, and generally sweep it under the carpet. Trained stunt men would save the life and limb of many movie stars, if taken seriously.

“All in a bid to make my acting more convincing, I was supposed to drop into a faint in the very first scene of the movie "PEPPER SOUP" but I guess I miscalculated and fell hard on a metallic object on the floor that pierced my face” he said after accident.”
The actor injured himself while performing a stunt on set of his new movie "Asiwaju."
