Resourceful Nollywood actress and producer, Doyin Aggrey has called on the Nigeria government to invest more in filmmaking, as the sector is obviously capable of turning the country’s economy around.

Nigeria is one of the countries in the world currently going through economic recession, and this has resulted in a series of heated debates and protests from members of the public. But Doyin Aggrey believes that if the government at all levels can intensify their support to the entertainment industry, more fortune would smile on Nigeria.

She noted that though the entertainment sector has always exhibited the capacity of being Nigeria’s biggest export, recent feats recorded by Nollywood movies on international platforms like Netflix is enough evidence.

“The international community has identified Nollywood as a viable source of revenue, and they’re investing in it massively now. With the investment of platforms like Netflix and Prime Video, the standard of our filmmaking has tremendously improved, and it is a win-win situation for all parties. If the government can also take advantage of this, I’m sure Nigeria’s economy will bounce back because entertainment is our best export at the moment,” Aggrey stated.

She however advised aspiring actors to embrace a career in acting, only if they genuinely have the passion to do so. “Like I always tell people, acting is not a career you will choose simply because you see how rich and famous the practitioners are and you want to emulate their lifestyles. It doesn’t work like that, and trust me; it’s those who come into the industry with such motives that usually lament.

“If you don’t have passion for acting, surviving or enduring the challenges of the industry before becoming a celebrity would be impossible,” Aggrey warned.

Meanwhile, the Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State born filmmaker and producer of ‘Italian Gold’ is currently warming up to hit location for the shoot of another movie from her stables.
