Stephanie Linus Wants Telenovelas Banned From Nigerian TV
Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke Linus wants to see less of telenovelas and more Nigerian content.
Speaking at a radio interview in Ghana, the amount of telenovelas viewed on local TV stations in Ghana is about the same in Nigeria.
She thus said that certain laws be put in place to protect the local industry from being dominated by foreign content.
“Yes, telenovelas are in Nigeria too but I think it is more about the authorities figuring a way to protect this precious industry that people have put their sweat and blood in creating.
"So if they understand the value that we bring, they should be able to find laws to protect it and find how we can have synergy.”
Stephanie was in Ghana for the “Glitz Style Awards” which celebrates individuals setting trends and raising standards with their fashion style.
She was a presenter for the night.
