CAMBRIDGE graduate Precious Oyelade, 21, has received commendations from her superiors after her 10,000-word dissertation based on Nollywood films was scored highly.
There are also plans that her research would be published to contribute to discussions around black identity in Britain
Oyelade, from south London graduated with a degree in politics, psychology and sociology after completing her compulsory thesis which was on her selected topic- Changing representations of Nigerian identity: An exploration through Nollywood and its audience.
“For me it was the issue of identity. I really wanted to look at how Nollywood impacts those who have grown up in the diaspora, who identify as Nigerian but still see themselves also as British and what distance exists between us and those in Nigeria in relation to film,” she was quoted as saying.
