What are some of the movies she wrote again? I recall watching some of her movies but for the love of me I just cant remember the movies.

I'm thinking Games Women Play and Critical Decision are some??

I think she wrote; Promise Me forever, Emotional Crack, Behind Closed Doors, Private Sin, and some other movies. Checkout the link to get more information about her

Coolchic,
Thank you for being transparent, and responding to us. I really like your works. My first introduction to Nigerian movies was with your old work, Silent Tears. I was hooked after that. I watched it about 4 times.

The only thing that I would ask is that you add some African music in your movies. All the music in your movies is American, and NOTHING is African. We have great musicians in Africa and Nigeria, and they need a plug. Remember that this is big scale advertising, and you are projecting the African image and reality to the world. Be mindful of that. If you lack music, contact me and I can send you some good South African music, even jazz - smile.

Our comments are only meant to improve your art. Slow down on the number of scripts so that you can concentrate on fine-tuning your works. You are good girl. Welcome!

It doesn't help that she writes today and they shoot tomorrow....She really needs to have a dramaturg look at her scripts...someone who she can trust with fresh eyes who can point out those loop holes and help her plug them. And she also needs to start reading some good books and do adaptations of them. I think the pressure is hard on her. I respect her immensely for holding her own in an industry overran by men and by Igbos. She's either very spiritually vested or just very wily...whatever it is, she's doing the damn thing.
At highlighted...What has that got to do with her WRITING. Just curious, I mean men are men, Igbos, Yorubas, Hausas, etc...

Critical Decision, Emotional Crack and soon!!!! Thanks all the same for the interest in my jobs!!!!!!! I just stumbled on this website and i find it quite interesting!!!!!! Kudos to you all for making all of us sit up and take a look at our works!!!!! I agree we definitely need to improve and we will!!!!!!
See, that's a professional right there. She didn't come here to raise hell about the criticism, rather, she's taking the good from it and applying it to improve. My sister, kudos for all your efforts and keep it up.

You know, it was yesterday that I remember Emem saying, she knows my name on NR the first time I met with her in Lagos (October, I believe). That she comes to NR and read here whenever she has the time. Emem, I hope I didnt critisize your work too much oo. I hope I can still find your email and number, make I email in advance. :)

We need to talk self.

Hubs.. its okay to criticize anyone's work so far it is constructive.. that is the only way the person can challenge themselves to be better... Now when they start saying things like "the person is ugly" which is a very common abuse on NR.. na where the thing get K-Leg....Cos I dont know how the pesin's work and ugliness are synonymous

Talking of music. I think Sammy Okposo did the music in "For Real". He is a Nigerian but very good with R&B. You will even think it wasnt made in Nigeria.

I don't think there's anything wrong with him criticizing other people's work, especially if he's a producer, as long as he's got the thick skin to take criticsm from others about his work and the criticism is focused on his work and constructive.

Emem Isong?

She is loosing her magic touch to overcommercialization.I arrived at this conclusion after seeing a few of her recent flicks which she wrote and produced.She will end up like Chico Ejiro as a has-been,if she is not careful.
The opinon of a concerned writer colleague.

She'll get back on form bro. Nollywood need people like her. She's a brilliant writer.
I believe form is temporary, but class is permanent.

People used to say that of Chico in the 90s,until his bad form became permanent and his class became extinct.
Well i hope that does not happen to Emem,because that would be a shame.
