Fashola: Nollywood Movies Promoting Money Rituals, Encouraging Kidnapping by dont8(m): 2:06pm On Feb 09
Without doubt, one of the common themes in Nollywood is money rituals. While such stories could be entertaining, especially with the mystical manipulations embedded in them, Minister of Works and Housing and former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, during the week asked moviemakers to stop telling such stories, because, according to him, money ritual is a myth.

Fashola, who was the guest speaker at the fourth annual public lecture/symposium organised by the United Action for Change, themed, ‘Security of citizens as a social contract’, said that belief system, reinforced through Nollywood movies, could be fuelling kidnapping, given the number of persons the police have arrested with human skull and other body parts, with the motive of money ritual.

But the former governor, who titled his lecture, ‘Insecurity: Taking actions against organised crime’, however, said it was high time moviemakers and policymakers changed the narrative, to save innocent lives from being wasted.

Fashola said, “Some people believe that if you get a man’s head or a woman’s body parts, they could be turned into money. It’s not true! And when you ask people who believe in it if they have seen it happen before, they tell you someone said they had seen it.

“However, it has become a reinforced belief through entertainment, social media and Nollywood. How can human head bring money? Money is paper invented by man, not God. They put the paper in a machine to print what we call money and that is the only place money comes from.

“But the challenge is the belief system. Just think about how many people have been missing – through kidnapping – because some people believe that it exists. The police could tell us the number of people they have apprehended with human parts, such as skulls. This belief system must go.

“Therefore, all of us, including those who make the films, must reverse the story and start selling a new story that money is printed in a machine and not through any other way like money rituals.”

He also faulted the fears that engulfed the populace last year when there were reports that cyber fraudsters were stealing women’s briefs to make money.

Fashola said, “It is not true, or how does that happen? What is the connection between paper (money) and cotton (pants) or has anybody seen cotton money before? Those of us who have influence and authority must take positions to see to the reversal of this kind of beliefs.”

Ibo film.... Money rituals
Wicked uncle, wicked step mother, someone must confess, the dead must fight back, once poor now rich will show the people that didn't help pepper. Same storyline no creativity

Yoruba film... Money rituals, stealing, thuggery, wife cheats on husband, husband cheats on wife, prostitution is a norm, thieves make it and retire to enjoy the spoils off their Ill gotten wealth, witches everywhere, even just this evening they just finished showing "ololo",promiscuity extraordinaire.

The recent films made by the likes of Genevieve make solid sense. I hope they continue that way.

Any lady, to me o, that watches Africa magic, both Yoruba and Ibo, is not reliable. For what you watch influences you. Generally television na rubbish dey there. I prefer pornhub or Xnxx to any station anytime. At least that one exercises my dogo

Foolish people.

Nollywood always acting nonsense. I haven't seen any Nollywood movie that is released and it has to do with use of modern technology or adventures. It is either rituals, family crisis, witchcraft, village and family hatred or Love making. I support Fashola on this. Nollywood is always portraying an evil of the society.

Nollywood fictional story showed you that rituals money is real with a deathly and meaningless end of the ritualists but their messages is wrongly interpreted by those who want to try.

Till my entire life meet it end, I will never believe in money that I had not see myself hustling for.

I will never accept money that does not come from my capital investment.

You don't need prophecy or ritual to prosper. God has given you everything you need to prosper with.
If your five + one sense are functioning properly, then blame yourself for not using it properly to prosper.

How many Nigerian movies have this man seen to make this judgement?

Back to oga Fash. You are in government. You should use your position to support the industry instead of criticizing it and doing nothing.

Money ritual is bullsheet, if it worked then we'd simply sacrifice a few lives to pay off our national debt and even take it a step further into becoming the richest country in the world
