    Why u no go loose am? All this bunch of hokum movies that are coming out arent worth it.... #600 na small money? abegi its not easy to fan Nollywood cuz u will get about 20 disappointing movies b4 u get 1 that makes u really happy.

    I didnt see 30 days poster but the man that I buy movies from had it in his possession and told me the release date is not so far away. I guess the Gene movie to be released in btwn Caught in the Act, love my way and one mufie she did wit Olu Jacobs... (cant remember the name o!)

    50 to 100 years...that is enough time to reverse this terrible phenomenon.Movies,music,may i add,COMIC BOOK stories in native languages directed at the young ones will help reverse the trend.Comic book stories with characters like superheroes and an african answer to micky mouse and scooby doo speaking in native tongues and directed at young kids will help massively.
    Bollywood is doing great with hindi films to help conserve the hindu language with their incredibly rich culture.We can do the same here.All we need is belief and love for what is our God-given heritage.
    Updating our languages academically,that is syncretization,to fit the modern times is crucial,too.

    I dey with all the entire Nigerian folks and their effort to preserve their respective languages and cultures.They are all we've got left in this world that is truly ours,the only thing we can really and truly call our own.
    Forget Obama,he is half black and half white.He belongs to everybody.

    the Hindi language isn't in danger of dying, though... it (along with English) is official language of the country. India has several other languages that are more in need of preservation than Hindustani.

    (just saying.)

    @ Sky,

    Woulda really appreciated it if you had given me the benefit of the doubt actually.

    "Such discussion" is not what I had asked for, was just simply asking a question...in any case, if and when in the future you wish to answer the question, its here for you to do so.

    Just so you know, the more you reply inthis thread or other ones like this, you are indeed "engaging in such discussions" :) Just thought I'd point that out to you.

    Be well..
    ;)

    I know that.All the same,the indians could've easily give in to english and chuck aside their own mother tongue the way we nigerians sem to be doing.
    I also know that there is movie industry in punjabi language that is also thriving in India,although it may not be as well known as hindi.
    The point is,making movies in one's own language helps in preservation efforts.

    the analogy is not appropriate, though.

    India has TWO official languages: Hindi and English... and the number of people whose first and primary language is Hindi is greater than that whose primary language is English (this was especially the case at the time when the Indian movie industry was first developing.)

    so the choice of Hindi as the general language of the movie industry is quite a natural one... it's the national language and the language that can be expected to reach the broadest possible audience in the domestic market.

    Nigeria has ONE official language: English.

    so just as in the case of India, the selection is driven by the desire to reach the broadest possible domestic audience in something that can be described as a national language.

    Im still "engaging in such discussions"? I never knew but really dont want to actually.

    Im really sorry I didnt go in details to quench ur quest to know, I just had to answer the way I did to avoid being quoted and mis quoted.

    Yes in future I will discuss this issue but I hope when next im discussing it id be speaking directly to whomever im discussing with and not writing it. I discussed it with a few friend and relative after we did here on NR.... and I found out that its a very sentimental discussion and should be for those who are slightly sensitive at every speech made.

    Sorry again for not answering u as u wanted.
