Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede has slammed her colleagues in the movie industry over how films are churned into Nigerian cinemas.
In a post shared on the microblogging platform, the actress said movie producers are now always in haste to shoot and release films, which may be detrimental to the entertainment industry.
The actress further said that considering how movies are released and taken to the cinema, Nigerian cinema might soon turn to the YouTube platform.
In a subsequent post the actress said her latest outburst has been tagged jealousy but she does not care.
Yvonne Jegede tweeted: “Today they are on set shooting, and next minute they have a cinema date, next tomorrow the movie don enter cinema. Them go soon turn Nigerian cinema to YouTube”. “Anything you say they tag you jealous. Face with tears of joy this is a way to make people not say the truth about anything. I beg make una shift with una guilty conscience”.
Reacting to the tweet, many social media users alleged Yvonne Jegede was throwing shade at Toyin Abraham.
