Nollywood Film Business | Lagos Actor’s Week Kicks Off with Governor Fashola’s Support

Happy New Month, AML People. I wish for you all, all the healthy and wonderful things you wish for yourselves. Yesterday, Nigeria celebrated 53years of independence. I was totally not in celebration mood, especially in light of the Yobe State Student(s) massacre, among other life threatening issues of safety that continue to plague many in Nigeria. I keep wondering whether the government is waiting until Boko Haram brings the bombs to Lagos state before it shuts down this senseless mass murder in the North, once and for all. Rather than rain on the parade of those who chose to celebrate, I thought to fall back and reconnect with you all today.

So, let’s get on with the month shall we?

AML Nollywood filmmakers, actors and actresses, the Lagos Actor’s Week kicks off with blessings from the Lagos State Governor, Fashola, and will be held starting today until October 6th, 2013. It sounds interesting and an event worth checking out. I am always interested to learn about your experiences when you attend these events, so please feel free to share them with me via ( If appropriate, I would also be glad to extend your musings/impressions to the AML audience.

I will catch you all soon, perhaps later on this evening my time in California. Plenty music and entertainment business and legal shennanigans dey, and we really should talk about it, soon.

Warm regards to you all.
