No Nigerian actor is good enough to feature in ‘Black Panther’, not even Genevieve – Controversial gay activist Bisi Alimi
Controversial UK-based Nigerian HIV and LGBT activist, Bisi Alimi has blasted Nigerian actors as well as Nigerian citizens for asking why there was no Nigerian actor in the record-breaking blockbuster movie “Black Panther” which clearly speaks about Africans.
The openly gay and HIV positive Alimi, who is married to a white man in Britain, and flee Nigeria over a decade ago over his sexuality, said:
The idea that their should have been a Nigerians actor in Black Panther is ludicrous. I am going to say this, as a matter of fact, there is no actor (male or female) in Nigeria that can act at such quality.
Black Panther was not about “screaming and shouting”, it was about “acting” and those are not the same thing. And don’t get me started at Nnaji (Genevieve Nnaji), she cannot act.
Te industry can be better, but they also need to know and accept they are rubbish at the moment and then go for training, I mean like quality training. In a country that gave us Nollywood to think we don’t have a specialist drama school? It’s sad.
Do you agree with him?
