Millions of people in Africa and the rest of the world have come to know more about Nigeria and Nigerians through what they have seen in thousands of Nollywood movies circulated by legal and illegal distributors on the street and on the internet. Nollywood has been able to improve the international public relations of Nigeria with Nollywood stars being accorded celebrity status in many countries.
Nollywood stars like Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Dominic, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Omoni Oboli, Ramsey Noah, Desmond Elliot and Jim Iyke have been received as VIPs by the governments of different African countries and welcomed like diplomatic ambassadors. But many of them have not been able to use their local and international celebrity status positively, because of their poor knowledge of public relations at home and abroad.
In fact those who claim to have managers are not faring better than those without any. In most cases, their so called managers have little or no professional knowledge or expertise of public relations talk less of the best practices. So, majority of them have ended up with either poor or bad public relations over the years. But there are few of them who have been able to appreciate good public relations and have won more fans and patronage.
Among them are Ramsey Noah and Omoni Oboli who have proved to have the best public relations so far. Their ratings have been based on the reports of their private and public interactions in Nigeria and abroad on and off the set of their movies.
