    Well, nowadays that Nigerian designers actually charge a premium for their stuff putting it at par price-wise with Western designer stuff, I am certain that Nigerians can be sensitized to pay a premium for quality.

    The Silverbird Galleria has inspired quite a number of 'me-too' competitors. There's the Lagos City Mall at Onikan and at least two others under construction at Lekki - all will incorporate big screens. Silverbird is also building in Abuja and the Dome will soon have a cinema as well.

    Now is it not possible to talk with the developers to install digital video projectors in their cinemas? Let's face it -snob appeal is a major part of marketing in Nigeria. if you can get the ajebota crowd to come to a toney mall/cinema to watch Nigerian movies, you are half-way through to the premium market.

    You somehow have a point there but i dont think they would stop actors from dressing the way they like, with their movies i have seen i think they dont stop love scenes but i guess there has to be an extent but still all we need is for Dove Media to come in and take Nollywood to another level, others would come as soon as they see Dove's success, of course we dont expec Dove to do it alone, someone has to take the first step which is what Dove Media is doing so instead of saying all these, why dont you lets pray that it works well so that so many great investment companies would come in and before you say"Pum", we are already telling a success story but all in all i think Dove Media isnt being too religious in their laws, not at all, most of their films arent even xtian films at all.

    I hope so MW. I don't want them to start disturbing producers because of traditional movies. I really love those traditional movies that involve chief priests, oracles etc. That shows our African identity. I don't want Dove to start saying those movies glorify the devil cos we'll simply start boycotting them if they're only marketing christian movies. Have you any idea how onsided and boring those christian movies can be? They're so predictable that you can tell the whole story formt he start of the movie.

    Girl I believe in industry growth not just personal growth. I am very free with info even though a lot of people are not the same with me. We need to grow this industry. What God has set aside for me will be mine... nothing in life is accidental, every human being that comes in to your life serves a purpose and vice versa. As they say do your very best at what you love and the universe will align to help you achieve it....

    Isn't that typical.. one person starts something everyone falls in line and most of the time without creativity. I liked that Onikan theater had a lot of parking. Ajebotas can kiss my ...

    You are right but time would tell, with the look of things if the movie is good i think they would market it, "Across the Niger" is somehow cultural although not epic but marketed by same Dove Media, i think all they are after is a great quality work, i have watched their interviews and they say the door is opened to every talented producers, just that some of their works maybe xtian flicks not all. Like Abeni which is coming soon from Tk is purely a love film and has nothing do with Xtianity, so is Before sun rise which is about Love. Dugbe Dugbe by Bukky wright is about cultism while Family On Fire by Tade Ogidan is about a young man who deals with cocaine and uses his illiterate Grandma as a camouflage but soon meets his waterloo when his innocent grandma gets caught.So i believe once the movie is good, xtian or no xtian they would market.
