Movie producers should stop denigrating Igbo tradition and religion

We have hundreds if not thousands of Nollywood movies that have rubbished the Igbo traditions and religion of our fore fathers while elevating Christianity.

Whenever there is a clash between the ways of our forefathers and Christianity similar to what you find in foreign movies where the bad guy always fights the good guy at the end of the movie it is Christianity that wins the battle.

The result?

Almost every Christian family in Igboland has recorded cases of one pastor or prophet setting members against one another since a family member will always be blamed for a failing business or poverty.

Why do we destroy our spirituality, heritage, history and ways of our fore bearers whose blood still run in our veins?

Before you say the God our forefathers worshiped couldn't defend our people when the Europeans came with their guns and bibles may I ask you what the Christian God did to protect our people during the civil war since majority of our people were Christians during the war?

There are lots of rich history, heritage and positive values that these movie producers can turn into movies and still smile to the bank without rubbishing the ways of our people.

Making money from movies is good but using the movies to rubbish the ways of your own fore bearers is bad and remains a matter of inferiority complex, low self esteem and colonial mentality.

You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. [...] We must dare to invent the future....Thomas Sankara
