Nigerians are no longer taking the back seat when it comes to showcasing our talent to the world. Citizens have managed to become internationally recognised for their works.
When looking at thriving organisations in the world, Nigerians are most likely part of the forerunners.
Nollywood actresses, Stephanie Okereke Linus and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, recently had their works in the movie industry recognised by the city of Los Angeles.
The stars took to their individual Instagram pages to share the good news.
In Stephanie's case, she explained that the movie, Dry, was specially recognised by the Los Angeles City council ahead of the Pan African Film & Arts Festival (PAFF) screening.

Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo, recently blasted movie sites that are illegally profiting from the film industry.
While Nollywood has risen to become one of the most successful movie industries in the world, it still battles with the issue of piracy as some criminal minds illegally make monies off the movie productions of others.
Following this, actress, Uche Jombo appears to have had enough of this. She recently took to her Instagram page to address movie sites illegally profiting off Nollywood productions and she spared no words in expressing her disgust and anger.
