    Well, they should all have an official meeting and do it right. Not bickering about it. That's not the way to go and that's my point. I remember living in bondage very well and when it came out because then Nollywood wasn't even as big as it is now. They should trace back the years and compare whose movie came out first and take it from there. I can help them on that one. For the Igbo movies, Living in Bondage was top notch. The yorubas should state the first movie that started Ymg movies. Then the combo would follow (combo meaning ibos, yorubas, calabar acting together) Such as Glamour girls. Please what's the problem? Abeg jare.

    Well, that's the problem, isn't it? NOBODY seems to keep proper records of anything.

    When we have Nigerian writers, filmmakers and musicians giving interviews in which they can't seem to remember the years in which they released their own work (or in some cases, even the actual titles of those works), what can we do?

    I guess the best thing might be to hash it out in public, which each person contributing the best information they can and then narrowing it down to what seems to be the most acceptable and likely version of the truth.

    well, lets see it happen then.
    @sidney. I do know that technology is advancing. You should see footage from the viper, corrected on a Davinci. it is brutally awesome. but still silky. lets hope then that the advancement will bring cheaper resources.

    I still know of ace photographers who shoot film and will not touch digitial. at the end of the day, we three have no say. so lets fold our arms and watch.
