They have to work on toning down the Western influence in some of their movies first; some of the actors strive to go Hollywood, which is a HUGE mistake imho. Nollywood needs to maintain its unique African character; there are some films done solely in indigenous language---this is wonderful, but a dilemma if you don't speak the language and there are no subtitles.

Here's another good drama...

If that was addressed to me, I never said that all modern films were bad. It's just some are too heavily influenced by Hollywood /American television. I can look at some Black American influence in some of the films and can tell you it ain't pretty...lol. However, it's a mixed blessing, because even with the cultural difference, you can tell they have a certain identification with us. What other traditional films can you recommend?

Ok Sister...I haven't forgotten. I will post as I find and remember some good ones. Some may be outside of Nollywood but still African. Again, you have to filter out some foolishness because despite their origin, there is still an infiltration of Westernized/Americanized imagery and values. This one is based out of Senegal....enjoy! There are twelve parts to this one, and it's entitled "Ceddo." Share your thoughts on them as you get the chance. I'll be back with more titles soon.

Blaklioness,don't take this personnaly,i was just playing around,matter of fact those modern movies are boring(not all but many lol).Id rather to see traditional movies because you can the beauty of US the Aboriginal men and women,it's so good to see them gals as queen with no perms in their head,but it's sad to see the very same gals in modern movies with all those chemical and non natural beauty,i like woaw black folks are insane:whip:

Hotep SiS Blaklioness...

I tried watching the first few movies you shared. I do not know or speak french so they are making little to no sense to me. One show I was able to view, Moolade I think it was, the "King" in that story I've seen before while in Ghana. He seems to play that role in most of the shows I saw then. Moolade, is similar to the movies played in Ghana in terms of the amerikkkan spin on Afreekan Culture and Traditions.

Ceddo looks like an interesting sorta view yet, the language barrier is in place and I had to stop watching. I could have followed it and picked up the messages based on the 'show' and would get the whole picture with the 'tell' as well.

That's all for now.....Peace and Please keep sharing....
