Femi Branch Disappointed Over Mark Zuckerberg’s Misrepresentation of Nollywood Stars, Says He’s ‘Idiotic’


Nollywood actor, Femi Branch has expressed his disappointment with how Nigerian entertainers are over time misrepresented around the world.

He reacted to  Mark Zuckerberg’s video about his trip to Nigeria. In the video, the Facebook founder referred to a handful of entertainers as ‘major Nollywood stars’.

Femi Branch posted the video of Zuckerberg addressing the entertainment stars as Nollywood stars, and his caption goes thus: “Was really pissed off at the way we misrepresent ourselves to foreigners sometimes. Imagine this fellow saying “Here we have all the major Artistes”????? Seriously?!?! These are all the major stars in Nollywood?!?! And are Yemi Alade, Chidinma, Basketmouth and Co Nollywood Artistes?!?! This is really idiotic to say the least!!!”

Branch is however upset that comedians, singers and others were allowed into the ‘Nollywood’ meeting and being referred to as major artistes.
