From the third edition of the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series coming out soon.

"The film industry of the 21st century can benefit from Blockchain technology, an innovation that can digitally support a dynamic and connected global network of content producers, distributors and audiences."
~ Paul Forrest.


Since 2013, publishing the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series by the grace of Almighty God has not made millions of naira, but it has been great to be the Publisher and Editor of the first and only series of books on the Nigerian film industry with versions in hardcover, paperback and @amazon Kindle, documenting the history of film production in Nigeria since 1926 to date and the first book to celebrate the beautiful and wonderful actresses in #Nollywood and #Kannywood; the first Nigerian #Hollywood star, Orlando Martins and the top 20 filmmakers in Nigeria.
The third edition has taken three years to produce, because I published two other important books; The Victory of Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Dream: My Testimony on the 2015 Presidential Election in 2015 and "LAGOS in MOTION: A Photo Album of Africa's Largest Megacity" in 2016, distributed by Amazon,

"Lagos in Motion" is a colourful travelogue on Lagos, called Ìlú Èkó in Yorùbá

Only few Nigerians have bought and read the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series and the top buyers in Nigeria are Mr. Ingram Osigwe, CEO of Full Page Communications Limited who spent N43, 000 on the hardcover and paperback versions of the second edition and one of the most accomplished directors in Nollywood, Lancelot Imasuen who bought a hardcover copy of the first edition for N7, 000. I gave out 15 complimentary copies of both the first and second editions. Majority of the readers are Americans, Europeans and Asians. The majority of Africans prefer gossiping to reading books. So, there are those you can call "Nollywood gossips" who are the talebearers in the Nigerian entertainment industry.





The third edition of the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series will feature the best 20 Nigerian female filmmakers; the highest grossing Nollywood movie, the world premiere of Femi Odugbemi's "Gidi Blues", one of the best romantic dramas in Nigerian movies; The making of "Lagos in Motion" and expanding the local and global markets of Nollywood through blockchain technology, chatbot technology, film markets and movie merchandising.
NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series is rated one of the best publications on Nollywood.
