Nigerian movies shape opinion better than Nigerian churches – Apostle Joshua

Apostle Joshua Saunyama of Kingdom Impact Ministries (KIM) posits that Nigerian movies have shape opinion across Africa better than Nigerian churches.

He opines that many people have formed opinion about Nigeria from what they have seen in Nigerian movies.

Nigeria ranks number 1 in Africa in terms of gospel success but Apostle Sauyanma discloses than many people in Southern Africa know Mr Ibu (Nigerian comedian) and other Nigerian actors more than they know many popular Nigerian pastors.

He discloses passionately: “The church should invest in movies and drama. People hardly forget drama. Drama can also reach people of other religion. Sermons only appeal to Christians”

He advises the church no to neglect the power of the media, especially in the area of employing movies and dramas to win souls. “Three out of every four Africans have been exposed to Nigerian movies…”.

It is evident in South Africa and Southern Africa than Nigerian movies are much more acceptable to the people than Nigerian churches.

However, Nigerian churches have done fantastically well in South Africa and Southern Africa, at large.

Ironically, statistics show that churches have invested below 10% of their resources on movies and dramas.
