Film Set – A contemporary story by Tony Ogunlowo

Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry is the third largest in the world, just after Bollywood and Hollywood, churning out thousands of movies per annum in a highly competitive straight-to –DVD market. It’s also home to divas, pretentious studs and wannabes. Ordinary people who have been plucked from obscurity, and overnight, have become household names, their […]


On The Non-certification Of Half Of A Yellow Sun In Nigeria

I am disgusted,angry but not surprised by the song and dance being played by the Nigerian Films Censors Board over the movie ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun.’ So the scenes are too sexual? Are they worse than the dozens of pornographic movies okayed by the Board that flood our markets? So they are too political? […]


An Open Letter To Up and Coming Nollywood Stars

As I write this to you, I’m really angry. I wish you could behold my face to see the level of anger on it. You might jump to conclusion that my anger is much more of envy and bitterness of your way to the top. I’m more concerned about future your endeavours. You’re already seeing […]

Nollywood and the Sexploitation of Women

Women. They are a very important necessity to life in today’s society; either be it for good or bad. You can never underestimate their value and importance.

New Kid In NollyWood… C. J. Obasi – The Fiery One

One thing I have always felt Nollywood hasn’t got yet is a set of free-minded independent artists that will champion a new ‘artistic’ Nollywood. I am one of Nollywood’s greatest fans… I enjoy sitting at the far end of Ozone Cinemas or Genesis Deluxe cinema screens, getting lost in whatever the likes of Kunle Afolayan […]
