    Ogonna, stori plenti for book. We all gave FAN all the support we could muster to do exactly that, but the company got frustrated by a variety of factors. Myopic planning, in-fighting and Inflation of immediate expectations on the part of FAN, and Impatience, suspicion and greed on the part of my Nollywood colleagues. FAN is a stillbirth today.

    Its doable, but it requires a lot of money, time and organisation to properly set things in motion (at least 2years to grow it without having to worry about paying anyone royalty). The problem is the guys in Naija think the guys abroad are making multimillion Dollars from their movies, so they do not trust them and give them the time necessary to GROW such a new venture, a crazy one at that considering it will be dealing with many Nigerians who do things the right way when dealing with others, but get all funny when dealing with other Naijas. Na long tori be dis.

    no one likes the truth and i am not a youth i am old enough to be your mom. i watch nigerian movies each i buy from a nigerian lady and sometimes rent i print the article and showed it to her she laugh and said she does not know where you guys thinking from, she told me that guys like you are from the remote part of nigeria so i should ignore the comment, you guys are in the dark ages she said that she is nigerian and she knows what she is talking about.

    If indeed you are as old as you claim (and my Mom would be about 62 if death hadn't come visiting), you would know not to call people you don't know stupid across the Internet. I live in the US for now, not in any remote part of Nigeria. As for the woman advising you, it is these people she tells you to ignore that make the movies that feed her. What else where you expecting her to tell you? You think she would tell you to take your money away from her store? Did you even process it?

    Let me leave this thread before I do what I urge my members not to do.

    you makes me laugh i will pray for you, don't worry any way you should open your own movie industry, you should not write in english if you hate the language anyway peace and love, i think if you talk to the actors and actress they will form a different opinion from you guys, no hard feelings just freedom of speech.

    However, I want to ask if you know of any other legitimate avenue (apart from the internet) in the UK where we can buy Nollywood films.
