Nollywood actor, Ramsey Nouah has expressed his unhappiness concerning the quality of acting in the Nigerian film industry.
Nouah disclosed this in a session at the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF), saying that the industry needs a lot of improvement before it can be considered satisfactory for viewers.
According to him, he believes acting today is better than it used to be, but just not good enough yet.
He said: “I still find a lot of disconnect between the technicality and creativity in my industry right now. I see that the creative, which is the art part of filmmaking, is still not as deep as I want it to be.
“Performances from the actors are not deeply rooted. We have good quality techniques going on, but it’s almost like oil and water not mixing properly.”
The actor also stated that Nollywood film directors are more responsible for the inadequate acting problem than the actors themselves.
“If you can’t get an Oscar-winning performance from an actor, the fault is not the actor, but the director. If you can’t deliver as an actor, the problem is the director that cast you,” he said.
