Nollywood veteran Patrick Doyle says there's an unnecessary conspiracy to pit the old actors against the young actors.

Speaking at the private screening of the anticipated "Isoken" movie, Doyle said that for as long as storytelling exists, there would be old and young people in the same story.

"I believe that there's a conspiracy of pitting the old against the young and vice versa, and there's really no need for that, because I also came into the industry and met people in it," the actor said.

"I don't know any story that you're going to tell that isn't trans generational. There has got to be a father and young people."

"As long as storytelling exists, there would be old people, there would be young people in the same story."

"So, there's no need for conflict in this. What has Jade brought to the table? - because Jade belongs to a particular generation.

"I have heard the term 'New Nollywood.' Thank God for New Nollywood or Nollywood 2.0. If it helps the marketing, it's all good.

"But the truth is 2.0 met 1.0. If there's no 1.0, there would never be a 2.0. So I'm even looking forward to 4.0, and if I'm around, I will work with 4.0."

Jade Osiberu who directed the movie added that the term 'New Nollywood' and 'Nollywood 2.0" is propagated by individuals, who aren't part of the Nigerian film industry.
