Word from Nigeria is that one of the stars who just returned from the ban just gave a marketer a thorough beating on set. That in itself speaks for volumes. Who would want to take all this for 400,000. Nobody is ever happy to be treated like a slave. I don't know where we are heading but it does not look good for our industry.
Now that, would have been a kodak moment :-) As if these marketers think money grows from trees...whay to go to whoever gave the full panel-beating !!!

This is what i love an insider telilng the nitty gritty. so in other words the guild betrayed their own.
Go to the top of the class, girl! The guilds did not only sell out their own, there seems to be a cult decision, if you like to 'look after number one' and everyone else can take a dive!! I'll take Vince on the rest.

That's right,beems.I read it in quite a few articles last year about misappropriation of the marketers funds by unscrupulous producers,and i can only say that that is very regretable.But nonetheless,the marketers took a fundermentally wrong decision in getting involved with the entire production chain,especially the creative part of the chain.A trader,or marketer,or businessman,or any other person whose area deals with money,has no business in the storytelling dept.It is a universal wisdom that a storyteller dare not think of money while telling his/her story,hence the story becomes "constipated"(word used by Steven King),or corrupted.Marketers have absolutely no reason to be in that area of movie production,no matter how justified they may feel.
A much better deicsion should've been their getting a much tighter rein on their funds and the way it is used.Instead of handling the funds for production of a movie,they could just buy the material and then take over the resource distribution themselves by not only becoming the executive producers,but getting their own man to be the production manager who will keep a hawk eye on the way their money is being spent during productions.
Which means that all they have to do is just employ the producer,pay him a fee,and let him get on with the creative part of the production without having to put the budget money in his hands to misuse.

Ofcourse,production costs will crash,when business is not conducted in an organized and disciplined manner.I am very well aware how these marketers were going behind the scene to undermine each other by trying the foulest means to pry away a hot star from a set, to do their own production.
The marketers themselves caused the production costs -especially the stars fees- to skyrocket by refusing to look for new talents and overusing the established ones.I put the blame here fully on their shoulders.
Marketers should deal with the head and the tail end of the production chain(financing and marketing) and leave the middle part(creative part) to the guys who are trained for it.
Nollywood will advance more rapidly only if they can concentrate their effort in improving their financing structures and strategies,and distribution/marketing end,and leave the storytelling to the guys who know how.
They can't do everything by themselves and expect things to be great.
See, Vince. I guess everyone knew from the onset what their individual responsibilities were and still remain - producers, directors, actors, marketers, and everyone else inbetween.

The fact however remains that these marketers are first and foremost, traders - folks who transfered from spare parts sales to the more exotic and glamorous world of the movies. They still are traders, wnyhow.

The way I have always known a trader, an IGBO trader, unless he is a bastard and not worthy of his title is the inborn ability to take advantage, take charge, take control, be the DECIDER! - if there is an opening!

What the traders have done, as IO understand it is simply taking charge when it became clear that there was noone in charge! Period.

The actors lost the initiative along with the other 'profesional bodies' in the industry when opportunities arose for proper negotiations and streamlining of the industry and instead of banding together along truly professional lines, followed the traders against some of their own.

Remember, those who ride on the back of the tiger, end up in its belly. Chinese? I guess that applies to both ends of the divide.

I am sorry if I do not share the sympathy of some folks here about the behavior of the traders. No doubt, what they do, smacks of blatant abuse of all that is proper but do you blame them?

Like some one whispered to me, in rather tribal undertones, IT IS THEIR MONEY, after all!! They can ban, unban and ban again...until actors, and other professionals prove they know what they are doing and what they are worth!! Atishoo!

You’re pointing out the truth, but we all know there are some striving and envious resentments here and there among the actors/actresses because of …… others doing better, and inappropriate comparisons here and there. It’s therefore not easy for these stars to be really united.
The industry is not that matured yet to make these folks that comfortable and flexible. And that does not mean the marketers should take advantage of the situation and abuse them! The industry will never mature to produce good stars and better movies. We will always lag and be deemed as underdeveloped forever and ever. We can progress and do better!

In view of the above, the most appropriate way to ease the tension and to control the industry effectively is for a neutral or a third party to play a “watch dog” among the parties involved. The buyers indeed have the power to do that as well as the government. That’s why until the government wakes up to appoint a mediator the buyers should revolt by boycotting the buying of new movies to ease the marketers of their barbaric actions against the cast and crew of Nollywood!

Nevertheless, we can all lay back as unconcerned, and Nollywood will crumble before our eyes, it must rise, and to do so, we need to speak the truth and point out mistakes. The unconcerned attitude will not help in anyway.

If genuine Nollywood personalities like KHAMILEON, has connections and reputable status within the marketers and the cast & crew as a whole, is willing to do nothing concerning the situation in Nollywood which we’ve all accepted as an ABUSE, then maybe the rest of us should close our eyes and behave as if nothing is happening! Until Nollywood crushes, and Ghanawood, or Gollywood takes over ! smokin:

Nollywood like NIGERIA as a country is too COMPLICATED for an Outsider to grasp.... You might have all the theories and best intentions in the world, but that has nothing to do with how things are on the ground. Like you I don't live in Naija, but I have constantly been trying my best. I have invested money, I have talked to the Marketers (The ones I know) and begged (YES) to sooth who evers ego that Barn/Blacklist is not the way forward..... Still my question is what are the Actors themselves doing to make things right??.... Some go behind to fix their own problems....What about their colleagues?? How about a united front??...... See RICARDO! I have said it a million times here "TALK IS CHEAP"...... if you or anybody is really or genuinely concerned about this particular, There is only one Solution, look for an alternative way to Market the movies.....

Everybody is saying I cant do it, I don't have money! I will wait till somebody who has money do it.... Well who has money?? NOBODY!!! Who is that somebody??? ..... I will tell youSOMEBODY is that person or group of people that are tired of the status quo and ready to do something!..... 1998 I didn't know jack about Nollywood but one day I woke up together with a friend went to a bank took 20,000bucks loan and shot a movie. You know why?? because I wanna be part of Nollywood..... There are some brilliant minds on this site, peeps who are sick of the marketers can start pulling their weights and before you know it, there might be a new beginning ....Again there so many people who are looking for stuff to invest in, study Nollywood and give them proposals.... So my brother apart from making a move, nothing will happen.... boycotting the movies is the biggest joke I have ever heard... If the Marketers hear this... They will celebrate with Esi-ewu and Big Stout! You know why??.... Cause your sales don't count! Few Marketers would vouch that his movies sells 100copies in the US..... they believe you guys are copying/renting them. So your boycott might actualyl be a blessing to them.....

PS: You should see Nollywood as a mini Nigeria.... Nigeria has so many problems why it is not growing, same thing facing Nollywood. We as a people are very different from each other, are not united, are very opinionated, believes we know better than the other, are selfish, are greedy, are not our brothers keeper, would do anything within our power to destroy the next man's progress ..... think deep about these and you will start understanding the real problems of Nollywood........I don tire to preach o!..... Later!

Khami, what you're saying makes a lot of sense, but you know how peeps adore your views and ideas, so in a situation like this it'll be very good not to declare your position. That's why Meddeen is making that claim. At times its better to stay neutral or adamant to all these.

The alternative route makes a lot of sense, actually bothers me why old stars like RMD and Omo T cannot join funds and open their own distribution company. All boils down to trusting someone else with your money, I guess !

1. U serious??..... If this is true I must say I am really humbled (cause I didn't know that)

2.Anyway I am happy you took ur time to read and digest what I was trying to say up there..... to ur question about why the two couldn't join forces and distribute their own movies..... read my post again and you might find some possible reasons. Still RMD has his own company (White water).. And the Marketers themselves are very strong,united and rich.. When I say rich, I mean just that!... Some of them have assets and cash to the tone of 200-500million naira.... (some of the exotic cars/houses u see in movies belong to them)

3.I am not supporting the Marketers neither am I neutral.... I am just saying it like it is now. I guess you are still some what new to this site, back in the early days I used to TRASH the Marketers (with reasons) and still do when I perceive they are acting up, but when I see so many people Insulting them non-stop! Calling them all sorts of names and there is no stopping, I have to come in and speak! I am about being fair and not taking sides cause I have nothing to gain or loose from anybody The sad part of it all and why I continue speaking is this.......If Some of the people Insulting the Marketers non-stop were to be in their shoes, they would do fifty times worse.... A Nigerian, in power??.. very rich?? would take Insult, argument, or even late coming from someone he is paying???... Think deep about this! He would throw him in jail if he could, forgetting that the same person helps him make that same money he/she is being oppressed with. Some of our people are power-drunk, self centered and wicked!...... but now everybody is trying to be so innocent blaming the only the Marketers....but how many people are actually their brothers keepers?? That is the real question.! There is a MARKETER in every one of us and until we learn to treat each other fairly, not just Nollywood, but Nigeria as a country will never grow..... Stay fine bro!

Great Khami, there is a saying that, if you know your enemy's plans against you, you guard and protect yourself against it. Undoubtedly, the Nollywood cast will one day wake up. Moreover, we the buyers are the ones who have made these marketers powerful. I've seen companies ruined because buyers decided not to buy their products any more, you may think this boycott is just here in the US, but its spreading, its like a fire that has started here in NR, and it is spreading. People are connected through out the world, and they will feel the drop in sales. Just one day at a time......

While i agree to some extent to most of your post up there,i have to disagree with this one here(in bold),beems.
It is NOT their money that they are reinvesting into nollywood,beems,but the VIEWING PUBLIC'S MONEY.
The marketers, or anbody else for that matter, do not have that kind of money to invest in nollywood without getting returns for more than 12 years!Yep!The only time they ever invested their own money was in the early days when they got started with their very first productions.After that,nollywood have been living and feeding exclusively on cash streaming out of the public purses.Without the fans,nollywood would be stone dead!
Tom Cruise is earning the kind of fees that he is getting now,not because the hollywood studios are so rich and willing to pay,but because the US viewing public are willing to pay him,just because they think that he is worth it.That's all!When they do not think that he's worth his present fees,they will simply stop seeing his movies,and that is the end of that,him,and his astronomical fees.Adios muchacho.
If the nollywood experiment had failed right from the onset and the public had rejected what the traders then were bringing out,they would've immediately returned to their spare parts trading,or whatever else they trade in.
The reason why they are still in business today is because the FANS are still willing to continue to finance,yes,FINANCE nollywood.And because of thise reasons their feelings need to be considered by the marketers whenever they make decisions that so drastically affect the relationship between the fans and their beloved stars.This RELATIONSHIP(which can be very very strong,indeed) should not be underestimated or treated with scorn as the marketers are doing now.
Only the smart marketers amongst them will know what i am talking about here.

Bro, why you dey vex now? Nor be you dey defend the marketers on NR? :rolleyes:

We've had this discussion times without number. The marketers have no right to ban the actors. If the fees the established actors are demanding is too much for them, they should kindly go to the cheap actors and see the result. There's no substitute for quality and banning the actors show just how short sighted these marketers are.
However, I do agree with your views that Nollywood needs an alternative form of marketing their movies. That will reduce the power of the marketers.

@highlighted. I believe the actors have their guild. The marketers should report misconducts by the actors to their guild inorder for the appropriate action to be taken. If the guild doesn't discipline it's members, then the marketers should take actions either by boycotting rude actors. I believe every case should be judged on it's merits. These marketers shouldn't have openly banned the actors especially when the main reason they're giving for the ban is money. That's why a lot of Nollywood fans I know believe the ban is all about the selfishness of the marketers. How can someone like Pete Edochie behave rudely on set? It's all about money bro, not conduct. :cool-smil

1. Please give me the name of one of those company in Naija I am just curious

2.You are very funny.... boycott movies in Naija??.... the only pastime the people have?? The way ur boycott could work is if the Marketer knows you buy his movies and he is loosing drastically. Long time ago I suggested people stop RENTING Nollywood movies and buy instead. While some states their own opinion for renting, others got annoyed and started insulting..... you see my brother if we are not united how could there be any result?? If nobody rents and the Marketers knows a large number of his products are sold in Diaspora, he would listen to the complains of peeps here..... but this your boycott both here and in Naija is the biggest joke of the year. the production of Nollywood movies has not decreased it has increased instead.
