All this from a few sentences I wrote..? Ol Boy, You do take these posts on NR literally don't you? I am having fun here ooo If you go through our threads and posts, you will find that many post just for the heck of being on one side of an argument and catching a little fun.

Now what is confusing you? The fact that I stated the obvious? That many people will start copying Ben Bruce without thinking it through?. I was actually in a round about way praising Ben and his family for thinking up and investing in the idea. The follow follows will soon join without solid plans and then be gone from the scene in just a few years. That is how the Homvie market was born and that is why there is so much turmoil in it right now. Living in Bondage came out, everybody rushed into the business for all wrong reasons without thinking up long term plans for distribution and the like...

Now for the rest of your essay, I hate the class strata in Nigeria. To the extent that Ajebotas think they are better than others by virtue of the fact they were born with a golden gavel in their respective mouths, they can go dive in the lake. However, my statement does not mean that I will not cater to them when it comes to the business of making money. Market segementation may work but it depends on the segementation itself. If I wrote about this, we would be here for a long time. These are issues I address and discuss in more appropriate environments not NR where I am trying to chill and have fun.

And what do you mean by lower demographic? Is that a segement of human beings who don't deserve to watch things they like on the big screen? I need to understand you first before i unleash ... :)

This has got to be the best thread i've seen in a while on NR. Even MW :D is making a lot of sense.
I have to say agree totally with allegra, infact he or she couldnt have said it better.


In my opinion, this is the thread of the year so far. The arguments for and against are precise and on point. Long may it continue.:fing02:

PS: Thank God people like Paj are not here to divert this sensible thread.rolleye:

You can say that again.Nollywood needs rapid growth and with many of Dove Media coming in, then of course we could talk of really booming as in booming in the real sense of the word. Its time we started doing things right in Nollywood.I am particularly delighted because Dove is only associated with Producers and Directors who know their work like the back of their palm.And with the likes of Dove Media, we sure have great hopes of seeing our banned stars again and of course in bigger movies.

She can be smart when she is not on the sauce...

The way I see it, Nollywood needs other investors apart from Dove Media. They need to create competition so that Dove Media doesn't dominate and monopolise the industry the way those illiterate marketers did. I know Dove Media will be good for Nollywood because they'll liberate Nollywood from those illiterate marketers, but what if they also become dictatorial? Remember that absolute power corrupts absolutely. They might want to limit their distrubution of Nollywood movies to Christian films when they dominate the market.

Dove Media will not be dominating anything if they operate with that sort of policy.They will only create a niche market for themselves which they can then dominate.That will not be a very smart business move on their part.

You're right bro. But it's a Christian organisation and they might concentrate more on marketing movies than can help them to win more souls.

Perhaps this is why your journalistic qualities are so poor. You are completely unable to read people or discern anything. You have your suspicions of which marketer I am? I am a marketer? What hallucinogenic drugs are you taking? I might like some of it on occasion. You are certainly funny on here. Perhaps you should become a stand up comedian?:) Just trying to help.

I am neither a marketer, journalist, actress or singer. Neither am I aspiring to be any of the things I have mentioned. Now, move right along....

:laugh: No be small EFCC..nah, Poms. I am yet to eat my piece of the national pie. By God! I will at some point in this life I am living:)

I shop in those stores(not on a regular basis as you seem to think)only when I can afford to. The reason you think I look very chic and expensive;) is because I know how to put myself together be it high street or designers. This is the skill I am trying to teach you, sweetie. Please..pretty please..let me help...I bet I can get an NGO for the issue..it really is a matter of national concern;)
