Nollywood actress, Ronke Oke Oshodi has observed that aside other challenges the movie industry is grappling with, one key challenge is tribalism and not belonging to a particular umbrella or association.

The movie director also decried the attitude of some actresses, which As stated by her, is not healthy for the industry.

In a chat with newsmen on Saturday, the 41-year-old musician cum actress said “The number one challenge we have is tribalism, yes, coupled with not being under one umbrella. I tell people, Americans love their country, that’s why they love themselves. Of course, they’ve got shortcomings as well but you won’t really see it the way you see it here in Nigeria.

“This tribalism of a thing is actually our number one problem. A Yoruba man would not want to call an Igbo man to act in a movie and same with the Igbo people.”

She boasted that she has been one actress that loves appreciating others for their works and also upcoming actresses, but pointed out that they as women too do not support their fellow women because of their success.

Oshodi said, “Especially we women; you know that person is your colleague and you will be giving her attitude. All these things to me are childish. That’s one thing about me, if I see any good actress, I approach her and compliment her.

“I do not have any unhealthy relationship with any of my colleagues in the industry. Believe me, I love everybody in their own way.”
