Nigerias' Entertainment Industry.
I like quiet a number of our actors and actresses. I remember Regina Askia (i wonder whats she is up to now), Ego Boyo, the late Mac Uthor Fom (from Behind the clouds), the late J.T Tom West, Desmond Elliot, Lilian Bach (isn't she pretty?), the gorgeous Dakore Egbusan, the lovely Genevive,Funke Akindele, the handsome Pat Attah, and ofcourse comics like Sam Loco Efe (he is soo expressive) and Nkem Owoh.
Our musical videos and production is obviously getting better. Nigerians know how to put sounds together i tell you. Its obvious we are a people who value entertainment. The music of P-Square, Bracket, Sound Sultan, Wande Cole, Tuface, D'banj are several of the entertaining musical performers we got out there.
The comedy sector is not doing bad at all. I am proud of what many of these guys have done for themselves by carving a niche through comedy. We have the 'father' of comedy like Ali Baba who is still very much around, Ay, I go die, Basket mouth, Seyi de Law (he is very humorous), Klint the drunk and the newer generation of comedian like Teju Babyface (who is also a talk show host), lepacious Bose, the petite and pretty Helen Paul, Princess to name a few.
It is an industry that is far from perfect. It's still taking some form of shape and i think it's gradually discovering itself and its potential. The world is gradually taking note of it. It will get there.
I wish the entertainment industry in Nigeria good progress in 2011.
