#EndSARS: Dami Orimoogunje Implores Nigerian Filmmakers To Put Making Comedy Films To A Halt At This Time

by Duke Magazine

Nigeria’s Nollywood director, Damilola Orimoogunje has reacted to the violence that has taunted the EndSARS protest, as well as the government’s alleged role in the heightened unrest. It is to the end that the fast rising movie director enjoined filmmakers in the country to shun the dominating production of comedy genre of filmmaking as a matter of reality.

The “For Maria” and “Losing My Religion” movie director stated that “This is the time to make socially conscious films”, he tweeted on Thursday, October 22. “Enough of the comedy bullshit. We have to fight the system with art or whatever we know how to do best”.

Orimoogunje’s concerns are not far fetched from the ace movie director, Kunle Afolayan, who recently confirmed that his team is already taking critical steps to produce a film based on the shooting of unarmed peaceful protesters.
