    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!

    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

    I got your PM.. I also got your email addy so I will email you... good job too.. I am very proud of you especially..............

    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.

    Actually,hubs cannot be criticising anybodys work cuz he himself gon be a producer, I think! So it'd be better if he lays off on that!:biggrinsa

    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.
