Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry, is one of the largest and most influential in the world. Its popularity extends far beyond Nigeria, with many of its films being widely watched and loved in other African countries, including South Sudan. Now, a group of South Sudanese entrepreneurs is seeking to bring that love to life by inviting six Nollywood stars to tour Juba, the country’s capital.
The initiative is being led by a group of young entrepreneurs who are passionate about promoting cultural exchange and economic development in South Sudan. They believe that bringing Nollywood stars to Juba will not only provide entertainment for South Sudanese audiences but also create opportunities for collaboration and exchange between the two countries’ film industries.
The South Sudanese entrepreneurs are now calling on the public to help them select the six Nollywood stars who will tour Juba. The chosen stars will participate in a series of events, including film screenings, meet and greets with fans, and workshops with local filmmakers and actors.
The initiative has received widespread support from South Sudanese citizens, who are excited about the prospect of welcoming Nollywood stars to their country. Many believe that the tour will help to boost the country’s film industry and promote cultural exchange between Nigeria and South Sudan.
Nollywood stars have also expressed enthusiasm for the initiative, with some saying that they are eager to visit Juba and learn more about South Sudanese culture. They believe that the tour will provide an opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity of both countries’ film industries and build stronger ties between the two nations.
The tour is expected to take place later this year, and the South Sudanese entrepreneurs are confident that it will be a huge success. They believe that it will not only provide entertainment for South Sudanese audiences but also create opportunities for collaboration and exchange between the two countries’ film industries, ultimately leading to greater economic growth and cultural understanding.
