Sankanu
A Gambian film producer, Bubacarr Aminata Sankanu, have lamented the manner in which the Nigerian film industry is taking over his country.

He insisted that if nothing is done urgently, the Gambia film industry will be placed on death row. He however emphasised that his provocation is not intended to trigger xenophobic attack on Nigerians.

He called on Gambian authority to take a cue from Ghana film industry which according to him has found a way to create a win-win business model for their country’s film industry and Nollywood.

Here is an excerpt of his lamentation on his Facebook wall which was also sent to media houses in Nigeria:

I DID NOT write this though-provoking article to appease any moral. I stand by every word till the last drop of my blood. I also respect the rights of to disagree and complain but then they have do live with it as there is nothing under the sun, that will make me modify my tone or edit my arguments to appease the fastidious folks….When the Nigerian mercenary judges were grabbing the President Jammeh opportunities to jail Gambians indiscriminately, they were labelled as judges and concerned Gambians raised their voices.

I dont believe in selective judgements. The movie hustlers have been doing the same at least for the past 10 years and it only fair to challenge them. This is not about Xenophobia as I noted on in my third point. The Ghanaian stood up against the “NOLLYWOOD INVASION” to do their home work first before developing a win-win strategy with the Nigerians. I am in for a win-win cooperation with our Nigeria brother and sisters but not on the counter-productive terms that I highlighted on my article. Jammeh will go but the two nations will stay.

What is wrong me us placing the mirror before the noses? DID THE NIGERIAN MERCENARY JUDGES KNEW THAT GAMBIANS ARE BROTHERS OF NIGERIANS WHEN THEY WERE INDISCRIMINATELY JAILING GAMBIANS BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WAS GIVING THEM MONEY, HOUSES, TITLES, YOU NAME IT?
