The motion picture which was coordinated by expert Nollywood on-screen character, Genevieve Nnaji, as indicated by the Los Angeles 
Times crossed paths with the institute decide which expresses that an International element film classification must have "a prevalently non-English exchange track."

"Lionheart" is among the 10 African movies that were submitted for Oscar thought for this present year.

"This isn't the first run through the institute has excluded a remote film from thought for having a lot of English discourse; in later a long time, the 2015 Afghan film, Utopia, and the 2007 Israeli motion picture, The

Band's Visit, were precluded for a similar explanation," Los Angeles Times reports.

Since this news broke, there have been contentions for and against the choice by Oscar.

Giving her response, an American movie producer, Ava Duvernay asked why the motion picture was precluded when the official language of Nigeria was English.

In a tweet on her official Twitter handle she expressed: "To the institute (Oscar), You excluded Nigeria's first-since forever accommodation for Best Worldwide Feature since its in English. Be that as it may, English is the official language of Nigeria. Are you banishing this nation from ever vying for an Oscar in its official language?"

In her reaction to Ava Duvernay's tweet, Genevieve Nnaji stated: "I am the chief of Lionheart. This film speaks to the manner in which we talk as Nigerians. This incorporates English which goes about as a scaffold between the 500+ dialects spoken in our nation; accordingly making us one Nigeria.

"It's indistinguishable to how French associates networks in previous French
settlements. We didn't pick who colonized us. As ever, this film and many like it is gladly Nigerian."

For Nigerian entertainer, Deyemi, he decided to see the positive side, saying:

"I can just envision what number of more perspectives Lionheart will have on Netflix before the finish of today! At any rate you take a gander at it this is a success! Continue winning."

"To imagine that a few Nigerians really whined that Lionheart had an excess of Igbo! Just for the Oscars to think it has an excessive amount of English?

All out BS! Truly, I don't enjoy the Oscars now!

They should change the name back to 'foreign language'," Twitter user, Steven Chuks, expressed.
