23 June 2016, 16:39

 Lagos - Nollywood actor and president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria(AGN), Emeka Ike has said that Multinational companies are empowering a few people to oppress everybody.

Making reference to Kunle Afolayan, Ike said that there is nothing special about making a 'great movie' with 200 million naira, that even a dunce can use N200 million to make a film.

He said this in a recent interview with TVC Entertainment, while speaking on quality of films in Nollywood.

"Don't tell me Kunle Afolayan is making a fantastic movie," he said. "You gave him 200 million Naira for crying out loud. The entire industry has not even used 200 million before now to make movies for God's sake now. So if you give a dunce that money, he can get the best producer. So it's not a fantastic thing, you are not making me feel oppressed."

Afolayan is a respected filmmaker popular for movies like "October 1," Phone Swap," "Figurine" among others.

On March 7, 2015, at the 2015 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, "October 1,"  dominated the night, winning nine awards at the prestigious event.

His most recent movie "The CEO," premiered 30,000 feet into the air on June 1, 2016
