Kanayo O. Kanayo – Stop Misleading Viewers With Wrong Dressing And Makeup


Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has urged filmmakers to be realistic with the dressing and makeup in movies.

Speaking via Instagram, the thespian opined that most filmmakers do not align with movie costumiers.

He cited how rich characters often wear Agbada in movies while in real life they are known by their expensive wristwatches, footwear, and Tshirt.

Kanayo condemned movies where female characters sleep with their wigs and full makeup.

According to Kanayo, “Many Nollywood Producers paint the wrong picture of dressing/Makeup in the movies, all in the name of fine picture. It’s misleading.

“The reality is that many practitioners have not realized that filmmaking is part of agenda setting in national development especially the culture and tradition of the people.

“The rich most times dress casually. Many are known by their expensive wrist watches, footwear, Tshirt and not Agbada.

“How can a man be resting in his house, lying on the Sofa fully dressed? How can a woman be adorned with full makeup while cooking?

Most of the ladies sleep with their wigs on, with applied full facial foundation. Ahhhhhhh. Dear colleagues, let’s watch it.”

According to the actor, it is important to be realistic in images created by filmmakers.

He said by doing so, the industry would become more credible and then acquire a more formidable character

He added that part of his PhD dissertation was about, “The role of Nollywood in shaping and sustaining a Nigerian culture identity”.

“This is what the music industry has done with Afrobeat. Now, they are all getting paid like they hit a jackpot. Nollywood can do better than them,” he added.
