"Sometimes As Filmmaker We Struggle To Know What The Audience Want" - Nollywood Actor Muyiwa Ademola.

Muyiwa Ademola, a Nollywood actor, has discussed the difficulties in making decent movies and delighting the public.

Muyiwa Ademola wrote on Instagram that filmmakers sometimes struggle to understand what the audience actually wants from them because their work is dependent on God and the audience.

Many people had advised Muyiwa Ademola to develop comedy films for cinemas and other platforms, according to Muyiwa Ademola. Many Nollywood stars, however, do not consider comic stories to be their calling, and other people who tried to make comedy films burned their fingers and got it wrong.

According to the actor, it's terrible that today's generation prefers easier, lighter, and 100 percent comedic films over serious films.

He wrote: "I beg you in the name of GOD, pls read till end! Sometimes as filmmakers we struggle to know what you our darling audience really want from us. Our job is the one in which our success depends on God and you; your acceptance of what we do.

In the recent times, we were told you only want comedy films at the cinemas and other platforms.

Some of us do not see comedy stories as our calling or what we should give you all the time, a few in the bid to give you comedy at all cost got their fingers burnt, they got it totally wrong!

In as much as it is good to give you what you want always as a writer/producer, it shouldn’t take away the fact that we have our comfort zones. Though as an actor I would give you anything you want, be it serious role or comical, I can seriously make you laugh walahi.

But as a writer/producer/director, humbly put you surely know where my ink is more blessed. The few that have seen GBARADA would bear me witnesses that we can still dig deep.

People ask me all the time that they want stories like IYONU OLORUN, OGO OSUPA, ORI, ILE, ALAPADUPE, OMI AANU, OWO OKUTA… GBARADA but I do feel like this generation don’t want it. They seems to prefer something simpler, lighter and 100% comical. I stand to be corrected though. Please, What do you really want? I NEED TO KNOW! PLEASE CONTRIBUTE!!"
