    How do you explain that the most critically successful film of this year, Beast of the Southern Wild, was acquired for less than 1M dollars by a Hollywood studio while an indie distributor acquired an unknown film with no critical success or hollywood A-list actor for "enough money" to make two other films? What budget are these films on? 2.5m dollars, naira or cedis? DRLD, go smart on the lies biko. If two films are in prep, major finance certainly isn't from alleged distribution. And, some indie distributors don't bare cost for P&A of certain films. The personal attack won me a bet, thanks not falling short.

    if I am to make any example of ghana or nigeria films with distribution, please give me some so I don't mention her. apart from her film and Anchor baby and a while ago jeta's film. which other film is there to mention? you are diverting the thread so you can say Mary was to praise goddess. sold out premiere don't mean box office success? since when? my friends in Ghana said it had full screenings each night at the cinema sef. she went to watch it 3 times and each time was a full house. you just disappointed I proved you wrong and my point hit home.
    all indications point the fact that, the local industry does not have the infrastructural support for major budget films. because the money will not return. so we need a western market. every nations film industry strives for foreign sales. with the US sales being the 60% of your gains. continue decieving yourself that you do not need western involvement or endorsement. why are our government exporting our raw materials? why do we import? the world is a marketplace that must trade together. take it or live in your little bubble. why does Obi want to go for Halle Berry if not for western endorsement?

    let me add. box office does not mean anything in Ghana or Nigeria. it does not mean your movie is good. Stephanie Okereke's through the glass was highest grossing in her year. that film was beyond razz. shawshank redemption did not do well in box office, but its standing the test of time and still makes its money in millions.

    Kele Mccoy, assuming I had the answers, i will give you. hia. you are still claiming I am Leila Djansi? you are a joke. you can't find any argument to make. if I were her, trust me, i will be in my full element on this forum and receive the much deserved respect for it. why? did she snub you? of course I will taunt you with Chiwetel. that was a good laugh. You are chasing every single hollywood, Ghanawood, nollywood filmmaker on facebook. you and I are facebook friends and i am amazed at your boot licking and star chasing tatics. did Leila djansi snub you? should I post your embarrassing imdb chasing of chiwetel for NR people to see? my dia, there are a number of NR members who were his friends too and we discussed you. relax. what is your obsession with chiwetel fanpage? you stalker. i was on his fanpage too and saw how everyday, everyday you had to chat with him and behave like he was your best friend. shameless. did you try to stalk Leila Djansi and she got a restraining order on you? na ein dey pain you abi? you stalk chineze too. am going to give her your name. she may have some info for me. why not give some concrete proof if I am a fake id? anyone who supports her must be her. so since u defend always chineze, should we assume you are her?

    I am waiting for your movie. since you have all the answers and know so much. you are just jealous. praying that she does not get her film sold. do you know the details of the films she has in prep? how do you know what deal she got? stop hoping she would fail! shame on you.
    whether good deal or bad deal, a well known distributor has her film and she is making more. at least she is not broke. she is not dreaming of making another. she is actually making another. good deal o, bad deal o, she. is. working. God is on her side and is protecting her. stop hating.
    Oscar Nominated Bruce Davison, Randall Batinkoff, Scott Wolf & Others To Star In Leila Djansi's New Movie | Movies | Peacefmonline.com

    Beasts was made on 1.8 million. he got paid 1million (as you claim) have you considered royalties? or you think they pay you 1million and thats it? he probably retained 25-35%. and that movie was sundance project. bring another example. 250k films are being bought for 1million. what do you know? you live in Nigeria and someoen who has barely grown teeth in knowledge is feeding you information. na lie oh. na lie. some indie distributors don't bare cost of PR so wetin? did Image discuss her deal with you? so because some indie distributors don't means they are not doing for her? you are not making any sense. wetin concern you and speculating how much she was paid? your heart don break be that. Dkele. I know where you are getting this info from and why you wish same applies to those you envy. poor you. humble yourself to the people who have connections and you will get connections.

    good deal o, bad deal o. a deal is deal. ROTFLAMO

    my dear u could have used either jeta or lonzo that u just mentioned, just as u could have mentioned ezra, a movie directed by newton aduaka, oh please u got to be kidding me to tell me that u don't know the difference between a premiere and a theatrical run, the dark knight rises cancelled its paris premiere due to the aurora shooting but it still released it for a theatrical run in paris, emem isong's bursting out premiered at silverbird cinemas but it wasn't released for a theatrical run, now if u come and tell me that ur friend told u this and that about ties that bind theatrical run, then that is no proof, anybody could claim such a thing. sold out premieres for a day premiere can never recoup ur budget and investment in a movie. how did u prove me wrong, look my dear i am too smart for those ur mind games ok.
    i really don't think u have been listening to what i have been saying all these while, from the inception, my arguement has been based on two things, the first being that there is nothing wrong with regards to obi's heavy marketing, secondly, the fact that i don't need the white man to tell me my work is good before i believe so. now from what i deduced from ur second paragraph, what u seem to be implying that i said is totally off from my actual case here, as a result it makes u the one diverting the thread to something else, even though ur second paragraph is off point from what i am talking about, i still will like to make something clear, no man is an island, both the developed world and the developing world cannot do without the other, this is what we call the global market, what happens in one market affects the other market, again ur second paragraph is totally off from my arguement here, i think u should pay proper attention to what i am saying.

    i didn't ask anything about if good or bad movies make box office hits, so ur last paragraph is of no relevance to me and this discussion.

    nne, assuming I know about Ezra. if leila is a good example, what stops me from mentioning her? did I lie? why can't you ingore the who and deal with the what? a suucessful premiere translates into a good theatrical run. as for that, every cinema back home will tell you that. that is the reason you do the premiere.

    I never said there is anything wrong with Obi's CNN. i had issues with the content of the post. that clearly is marketing CNN appearance than content or ways forward. what will you do if an actors tells you i want to star in Obi's film because it will make me come on CNN?

    sadly, it is for fame that most of these people are acting and this is the reason for the terrible acting.
    to make a point, you make other points.

    u were of the assumption that there weren't any other nigeria or ghanaian film that recieved a distribution deal, didn't i also say u could have used either jeta or lonzo that u mentioned in ur comment. no my dear a successful premiere does not always guarantee a successful theatrical run, guilty pleasure and i will take my chances had a succesful premiere but didn't do well on theatrical run, i wonder which cinema back home told that every succesful premiere automatically translates into a good theatrical run, na wa oh.

    oh please obi's cnn stuff or according to u pr gimmicks has been the back bone to ur comments here and is 99% the sole reason u started this thread, actually the person u should be attacking is not obi but the reporter who put up that post.

    you will pull arguments from any part of your body. na your own wahala. Yes, same way you assumed someone has never had box office success, same way I am also allowed not to know of any movie that has distribution. I have never even heard of ezra until you said it.
    its interesting that you don't want to believe someone has had box office success with her film. anyway sha. whether she had it or not, she is making more films. that goes to say something.

    continue. am out.

    ok so i lost track of what this thread and the ensuing debates are about.

    Angie, i know you're either going to ignore this post or come at me with guns blazing.

    but i just have to say that, in your defense of, or praise of, Ms Djansi, you also put down and denigrate other hard working directors, and belittle their work.
    perhaps you aren't aware that you come across that way, but you do.

    fair's fair.
    i gotta call it as i see it.

    nothing wrong with you singing ms djansi's praises, however it shouldn't be at the expense of other hard working folks.

    her works already speak for themselves, and stand on their own.

    maybe you should take a step back and see that your constructive criticism are not really that constructive.

    anyway, as you were.

    and congratulations on you-know-what. *wink, wink*

    i can't believe you did this. don't think it was exactly fair to bring out dkelechi's business like this, i might have missed a post where s/he might have written stuff about your personally but this is quite saddening.

    don't think it was called for sha.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway.
    as you all were.

    You know, I agree, this is sad. I don't know any of these characters, but when someone is losing a point, and can no longer speak based solely on the merit of their point, they resort to tactics like these. I lost track of what is being discussed, but to the person whose business supposedly got put out, understand that that post says a lot more about Angela 81 than it says about the person she thinks she was trying to embarass. There are highly intelligent people on this forum and playing to the lowest common denominator diminishes your image, not the other person. Wow, again, as you were.

    *smh*

    I believe everyone has a right to privacy on this board. I still don't understand why people have the tendencies of calling each other out when they tend to disagree on a matter. If you know someone on FB, good for una. Why do we now have to call out their entire life story. This trend on NR is a bit disgusting to say the least. The other day His Majesty did the same thing. I don't know if people really do understand that it does not make them look any better and that in such a way an argument is not won. It is actually quite embarrassing. Biko, make i de waka comot.

    i pull comments from any part of my body when i know what i am talking about, i don't just talk for talking sake. i didn't assume anything on my side of things rather u were the one assuming on ur side of things. i didn't assume that ties that bind wasn't a box office hit because it wasn't(i stand to be corrected on this with concrete proof), if it were a hit then there are a couple of ways we could know, one of which is the most common way, the media, so far the media most especially the ghanaian media haven't said anything about ties that bind being a box office hit.
    why will i disagree when someone has a box office hit with their respective movies when the fact is out there, but in this case, there is not fact to prove that ties that bind was a box office hit period. it is interesting that u would attack someone becuase of their connections, by the way obi is making more and more films as well, that also says alot.

    Whatever floats the boats and egos of the "brains" and "high mentality" behind this reply. Don't want to say anything I'd probably regret later.


    P.s. The truth has many sides and one day wind go blow and fowl yansh go open. Good luck.

    When a stalker is being stalked he must be some sort of threat or is doing something that interests his own stalker. GOD is good!!! :D :D

    I will not come after you oh. But, I am just sick and tired of some NR peeps on this website. haba. wetin sef. its like a taboo to mention that girls name on this page.
    I put dkelechi's business out there because that boy is evil personified. I will admit I went looking for him and found him on facebook after he and sola got into it on the Ije thread. he has a bone to pick with Leila and i am going to find who he is. his/her facebook profile picture is of two zebras. and that's the kind of profile picture stalkers keep. whether the human photo he has is he himself, only God knows. the great thing is he has the same ID whereever he goes. and the things this boy writes about leila Djansi are just hateful. and it all because of the tulips saga. if you don't have a just cause to hate someone and you hate by being a groupie, that is witchcraft. me, i have beef with Genny because we had a head on collision face to face during Ms Lux. if i hadn't met her, i wouldn't have any reason to dislike her. i got my self involved in defending ms djansi after that tulip saga because NR was ready to burn her alive. if not for me, an innocent girl would be hated and vilified for no just cause. leave dkelechi to me. imdb still has all his stalkerazi fights with people he doesn't know because of Chiwetel Ejiofor.

    For someone in a shameless stalking business of great talents like Chiwetel Ejiofor and Genevieve Nnaji, what gives anything flowing in you impudence to suggest "Leila Djansi" is interesting stalking material to me biko? Biyi Bandele is making one of the biggest films from Africa poised to make a great statement (Hollywood or not) and he is awesomely Nigerian. Newton Aduaka is a Nigerian who've made two critically acclaimed movies, and there is Andrew Dosunmu and too many more including Chineze Anyaene-- whose THESIS you go around world wide web calling textbook film set an unbeaten record in Nigeria theaters and got official selection into a few good film festivals. Why would I leave all this people and crossover to stalking a GHANAIAN? Because she is Clintness Eastwood or Steveness Speilberg? Nigerians are hitting it big time and fortunately I know some to a degree. Because una think so lowly of people una build up enemies and fantasies in your brains <or type>. I'm not the Ghanaians fighting una tooth and nail biko, save it for them and the battle is with selves to be fair.

    What business of mine did you put "out there" that's not "there" other than the proposal I sent for second feature film Nigeria theatrical release which wasn't responded to? You were going to mention it saying I'd give your name too blah blah blah... nwata miss save the suspense info is out and was never a secret to begin with. Proposals get snubbed, piles of them actually so don't get big on things which isn't the Hollywood dream. You went looking for me during IJE business with claims your name is Mary whereas a single facebook friend of mine bares the name Mary or ever have. So, who are you now? Can you confidently say since you know who I am? Invisible Angela81? Interesting to note the one friend I had during Chiwetel Ejiofor impersonation saga is "art house film maker" you claim to be just a "supporter" of. 1+1 is not 3 and you're not speaking to some dude with senile dementia. Using one identifyable ID should at least tell I'm not fake like you and your chronic lies. I'm sure its in your dreams and imaginations you met my lovely Genny <I will continue to groupie till rapture> and had a one-on-one clash with her.

    I'm preparing a feast. When its ready and done, you guys are invited with your knives and butchlers to butcher it. I agree I'm evil in the condition you are lucifer yourself. Am very uninterested in anything else the "brains" behind your reply to me come up with. Blaze on like you've got beastly struck.

    Angie, please feel very free to come after me. Don't let me stop you.
    But, let me assure you : it will be a very one sided conversation with yourself.
