Nollywood on Lockdown

Popularly known as Nollywood, Nigeria’s film industry is the world’s second largest producer of movies. It employs more than a million people and produces about 50 films every week. But Covid-19 has led to a halt in film and TV production, costing an estimated tens of millions of dollars in lost earnings. Directors Mildred Okwo and Imoh Umoren and actress-producer Kemi Lala Akindoju explain the pandemic’s impact on the industry.
