While he appreciates the ‘Things Fall Apart’ actor, he believes the late Solomon Eze, often known as Mike Orihedịmma, is the founder of Nollywood.

According to the actor, Orihedịmma was a pioneer in Igbo movies and later Nollywood.

Speaking in a recent interview with popular YouTuber, Yan Kontent Factory, Alajemba said: “When you talk about Igbo movie industry, Mike Orihedịmma is the first person to be mentioned. He is the one that trained most of the people you see acting today. He was emulated by Kenneth Nnebue and Pauloo in writing ‘Living In Bondage.’

“When it comes to the movie industry, the only person I respect is Pete Edochie. All the people in the movie industry today, anybody that says he is older than me in the industry, should tell us the first movie he did and what year it came out. It is only Pete Edochie that I can say that he is older than me because of Things Fall Apart.”
