In a bid to appreciate the efforts of Nollywood stars in making their movie industry very popular, the Gambian President, Prof Dr Sheik AJ Jammeh recently presented plots of land to some Nigerian actor and a Ghanaian star.

Jammeh made the presentation on Saturday, October 11, through his Vice, Dr Mrs Isatou Njie-Saidy, at the Presidential palace in Banjul.

The beneficiaries are Francis Duru, Segun Arinze, Monalisa Chinda, Patience Ozokwor, Eucharia Anunobi, Ejike Asiegbu, Tony Umez, Ngozi Ezeonu, Kanayo O Kanayo, Chika Okpala (Zebrudaya) Harry B Anyanwu, Chinedu Ikedieze, Osita Iheme, Rukiat Masud and Jackie Appiah.

Stressing the reasons behind the gesture, the President said it is part of his belief in pan Africanism, values and heritage which Nollywood has helped to showcase to the world. He stated that the plots of land were given out to reward and encourage the stars to see the country as their home.

“Nollywood and Ghollywood have been able to capture and tell our stories better than any outsider can do. Africans relate to your stories and same with those in the diaspora and the Caribbeans and around the world,” the President said.
