Nigerians react as Academy disqualifies Nigeria’s Oscar entry, ‘Lionheart’

The movie “Lionheart,” in which Genevieve Nnaji starred, is partially in the Igbo language of Nigeria. But it is mostly in English, which violates an Academy rule that entries in the category must have “a predominantly non-English dialogue track.”

Genevieve, in her reaction to the disqualification, took to twitter to write; “I am the director of Lionheart. This movie represents the way we speak as Nigerians. This includes English which acts as a bridge between the 500+ languages spoken in our country; thereby making us #OneNigeria.”
