    Nollywood has waited so long for this and with the look of things, if all things work well then Dove media is the one to take nollywood to that very place. Dove Media is presently working with many notable movie producers and directors in nigeria especially those who are usually unfavoured by the marketers who have been dictating the tune in nollywood for a while now. take for instance a great picture christian movie would be released soon and its titled "The convenant church" and is produced and directed by Charles Novia and stars RMD(One of the actors currently under the marketer's ban), Segun Arinze,Saidi Balogun Nobert Young, Remi Abiola, and so many others..the movie is based on the story of the redeemed christian church of God. Another flick to be released is from Tunde Kelani's mainframe and its entitled "Abeni"...a motion pictures cinema, according to T.k , the idea of cinema has been left out for so long in the yoruba movies and this time Abeni promises to be a bang and would be marketed by Dove media...Dove media promises a very good distribution network, as they have sales outlets in all postoffices and all Habib platinum banks and all sweet sensation fast food outlets not leaving out all redeem churches worldwide..isnt that lovely? Our movies would be sold like Recharge cards now says Dove media which means that the long term problem of distribution and movies not getting to some quaters would be over if this works well...another great movie is from Tade Ogidan's OGD pictures and its titled "Family On Fire" shot in Nigeria and abroad...another is "Before sunrise" by Fred Amata which was shot in Cameroun... and also Kingsley Ogoro's much awaited "Across the Niger", The widow" would also be released by Dove media.....and so many people seem happy with Dove media's plans for nollywood cos if it works then everyone would be encouraged to spend money on their productions. Good, isnt it? I am so excited about this and watching Tunde Kelani on Tv talk about this with so much excitement shows that he feels happy about all these and says Dove assures them of great royalties from the movies they shoot. And with so much money spent on the movie jackets and C.d;s itself, it would be hard for pirates to have a field day cos most people know what Dove Media's original movies looks like and its damn expensive to make, not like the cheap ones that nollywood has been known for that makes it easy for pirates to mass-dubb.....there would always be pirates but i believe that with Dove media, it would be less. Lets hope and pray that these all works out for Dove Media cos thsi is what Nollywood has ben waiting for...@pom pom, incase u wanna release your 30 days on DVD in later on, Dove Media is a better deal, if u dont mind, just an advice and am not getting paid to do this advert, just that great movies deserve great distributors like Dove Media and thats why great people like Tunde Kelani, Tade Ogidan, Kingsley Ogoro, Charles Novia and Fred Amata have embraced this big offer so poms please dont be left out.

    My dear, u are not half as happy as i am, if everything works fine then nollywood would be going to another level, i know its graduall but its good to see serious minded people do this business and according to Fred Amata during his interview on Breakfast t.v on Stv, he said one good thing about Dove Media is they dont dictate who should be used in your movie, they give you the liberty to use your own casts so far the storyline is tight and good enough...lets pray that Dove's dream for Nollywood works cos those guys have greater visions and dreams..we aint see nothing yet, i believe.

    Dove Media is exactly what Nollywood need. Those illiterate marketers can now go to hell. I know they'll try to sabotage the activities of Dove Media cos it's in their nature to play dirty. But with the help of Nollywood fans, Dove Media will surely prevail. NONSENSE MARKETERS.

    There was never really any problem of distribution. It was just a problem of capital. Distribution is capital intensive and most producers don't have that knid of money. Instead of teaming up and making it happen, they preferred to work individually. That is why the ban was very good. Hopefully it opened up people's eyes. Good for the industry..
