Leila in an interview stated that new producers identifying themselves as "Nollywood" is almost equal to a parent calling his/her son, Hitler. She allegedly made the statement because Nollywood [already] has a negative connotation, which these new producers should not necessarily be clinging to.

“I don’t think those people, this crop of filmmakers should be put under the umbrella of Nollywood. They should be put independent because the name carries a lot. If you start tagging them Nollywood, every negative connotation that comes with Nollywood… is like calling your son ‘Hitler’” she said.
