Once upon a time, there was a day I decided to check how well Nollywood industry has become. I took my android, launched the YouTube app and searched for Nollywood movies. I got the shock of my life; do you know why?
Virtually all the movies in the present movies are pornography. Even some rated general have some element of sex scenes which is detrimental to children and even some adults. still on YouTube, I selected the ones which are seemingly Gospel movie, what I stumbled upon still called for alarm. I was disappointed that the present Nollywood has deviated from what Nollywood used to be_the old Nollywood movies entailed moral lessons but the present has no lesson 😥 It can only bewitch and corrupt viewers mindset. Even a bad father would never allow his son watch most Nollywood movie.
Do you know why moral decadence is at its apex in this present generation? It is because what they read and watch is immoral.The things that affect the character of people most are what they watch and what they read. What you watch/read is recorded by the brain and it would be what you think and meditate on. The brain has some connections with the heart. This is the reason Bible recorded “guide your heart with all diligence for out of it proceeds the issues of life”.
This is the reason rape case is much in this generation. They have filled their hearts and soul with sexual immorality through what the watch even in Nollywood movies. Those immoral films they watch record itself in their mind and their heart nurtures, the ensuing result is strong desire to have sex. This makes some that have less self control to grab any girl(even underage) they see in an ostracized place and sex her by force irrespective of decent or indecent dressing. Some will end up masturbating and some other kinds of bad deeds. Will a rapist inherit paradise?
Perhaps this present decadence is what Pastor W.F Kumuyi of Deeper Christian Life Bible Church foresaw and banned his members from watching television, though the ban has being lifted. The present Nollywood movies have done more harm than good to this present generation.
I still remember when some ladies and even men will watch Nollywood, cry and learn some lessons I still remember movies like “God where are you? Nneka and so on . I still remember when someone would buy/lent Nollywood movie and watch it bodily with his/her siblings in the presence of his/her parents..But what has it become today? 😥 , even if you buy the one like a good movie, you will still be afraid to watch it in the presence of your parent.
The Nollywood meant in this context is not Yoruba movies, RCCG movies and other similar industry like mount Zion. It is the normal and infamous Nollywood you know
