The drama following award winning filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan's tweet isn't over as Nollywood director, Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi responds.

Nollywood filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan, tweeted on the Igbos being behind piracy in the movie industry. His tweets led to his fans expressing their displeasure and terming his comments "tribalistic".

Kunle has since apologised, but the drama isn't over as Ifeanyi (Mr Hollywood) expresses his displeasure.

According to Ifeanyi, Kunle is an overrated filmmaker. Read his full response;

"I almost ignored Kunle Afolayan's useless tweets about Igbos being the only Pirates in Nigeria because to me, Kunle is just an over rated Nollywood film maker.

He's not better than Izu Ojukwu, Teco Benson, Obi Emelonye, Chineze Anyaene to mention but a few.

The secret of Kunle is his DOP Yinka Davies who does everything for him and at the end of the day Kunle will just come and announce 'action'...

Give him another local DOP and see if Kunle is worth all the praises his kinsmen showers on him. Kunle should thank Peace Anyiam Osigwe for giving him the platform of AMAA as a pedestal to limelight.

Trust me, if Kunle walks the street of Onitsha, Aba, Enugu or any where outside Yoruba land, not even one person will recognise him as a celebrity.

I will rather worry myself with the Oba's threat to Ndi igbo than spend one second of my time thinking about Kunle's senseless tweets about the Igbos."
