Only 30 per cent of Yoruba films are scripted: Dele Odule


Nigerian actor, Dele Odule, has revealed that over 70 per cent of films produced in Yoruba language are not written.

Odule stated this during the week when he was hosted by the Ibadan Film Circle.

Nollywood movies in general have always been fairly criticised for poor scripting.

Odule noted that, Yoruba films are carryovers from old theatre practice from which many of the practitioners evolved.

He said, “It is true that many Yoruba films are not scripted. They are 30 per cent scripted and 70 per cent improvised. It boils down to the way theatre practice started and those who started it before the emergence of theatre scholars who now combine the raw talent with the theory of theatre.”
