Nollywood director, Isioma Osaje has urged film critics to focus more on the consumers of movies rather than filmmakers.

She expressed her thoughts on this category of critics in a tweet shared on June 9, 2021.

"Association of Nollywood critics, stop tagging us on your negative reviews. I know you will tell me your intentions are noble, but don't worry, focus on your audience."

Although the filmmaker did not get to name-calling, some Nollywood critics have admitted to tagging filmmakers on both positive and negative reviews of their works.

Osaje's tweet was endorsed by Inkblot co-founder, Naz Onuzo who replied, "Lol. I've been saying it since, it's a very shitty thing to do and I've never heard a defense of it that makes sense."

The filmmaker has worked on several major Nollywood projects including 'Quam's Money', 'Up North' and 'Who's the Boss'.
