Clara Nneka Oluwatoyin Folashade Chukwurah(24 July 1964) is a Nigerian actress and humanitarian.
- Nollywood is today’s euphemism for the Nigerian film industry.
- For me, I have achieved something that gives me a deep sense of satisfaction, a feeling that I have an edge above all this issue of fame. I have risen above all that
- The mainstream Nollywood world is the one that caters for the populace, not necessarily the cinema movies. And with the new distribution channel that is coming, the important thing is for the professionals to come into it and not say we can’t relate with this people. In order to make things right, you have to go back in there with a determination to make things right.
- I see my brand impacting on young people, helping them achieve their goals and also making them believe there is nothing they can’t achieve.
- Nollywood needs to be structured. It is not just about improving the quality of movies or equipment rather it involves the right funding and how actors are paid. Nollywood is still in a zigzag which means anybody can do anything. The industry has to be structured in a way that one arm of the organisation will feed on the other arm. We have to make things work in Nollywood
- It is about time management which is very important in this context. However, I don’t support both parents working the same hours. This is affecting our society, it is highly responsible for how our things are going. We are imbibing a lot of negativity from the Western world. When children are left with little or no attention, they engage in online activities, entertainment that’s not properly censored and a host of other things that may corrupt their minds. I suggest both parents should work on how to manage their time to strike the balance.
- The time has come for the Professional Guilds of Nollywood to take a unified and decisive action to stop the proliferation of award events that exploit the industry and do not add value to the practitioner/recipients
