Veteran actor, Keppy Ekpenyong Bassey has pushed back at claims of witchcraft practice in Nollywood.
Responding to a question by a student of the Africa Film Academy training, who asked if there is truly witchcraft in Nollywood as alleged by a popular pastor, Keppy Ekpenyong stated that any Pastor who claims there’s witchcraft in Nollywood is a liar.
The veteran actor who further added that people behind such claim are “stupid”, also stated that Nollywood is the second largest employer of labour in Nigeria outside the civil service.
“The industry in Nollywood is the second largest employer of labour in Nigeria outside the civil service. No other industry employs labour more than Nollywood. What kind of stupid person will now say that there is witchcraft in Nollywood? Any pastor that says that is a liar. Take it from me.”
