Charles Novia is a Nollywood filmmaker, critic, social commentator and writer, who is popular for his 'controversial' articles.

Born Charles Osa Igbinovia, the filmmaker is a native of Edo State, and today November 20, is his birthday.

To celebrate him, Pulse Nigeria is sharing three reasons to love the actor;

1. He says what people are scared of saying'

Call him "controversial" or "cyber bully," but the entertainment industry needs more of his likes.

In an industry where people shy away from the truth, an industry where people say "your album/movie is dope," even when it's nothing to write home about,  Novia is just the perfect critic.

2. He has made great movies.

Is there any movie of Novia that isn't on the great side? From the days of "Missing Angel," "The Pastor and the Harlot," to the days of "Alan Poza," Novia always has a story to tell.

3. He is creative.

When he isn't getting you 'angry' with an article about your favourite actor or actress, he is penning down creative, entertaining and interesting write-ups.

His 2012 book "Nollywood till November : Memoirs of an Insider" is all you need to prove this.
