"I don't think it is hard to find good roles in Nollywood. You would agree with me that our stories are evolving from what they used to be," she said.

"Right now, we can stand and compete with any international movie, in as much as we have not really gotten to the extent that we know we want to get to.

"But we are growing to the point that we can stand and be confident that 'this is a movie that was shot in Nigeria, and it can stand anywhere in the world. So yes, we have good roles in Nollywood."
