The Nigerian film industry does not have a formal film market, but there is active film distribution in Africa’s largest film industry.
The Nigerian film industry which comprises of Nollywood and Kannywood is estimated to be worth more than US$ 590 million annually; producing over 2, 400 movies annually and employing more than 1, 000, 000 people every year. But there are no statistics to confirm these reports, because they are not facts.
I have published these reports in my NOLLYWOOD MIRROR® series, but the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) knows that the Nigerian film industry is still a guerrilla film industry in the African jungle and the claims of employing more than 1,000,000 people, making 2,400 movies and generating more than US$590,000,000 annually are not verified by any auditor.
If the Nigerian film industry is really booming, then why are many of the filmmakers and actors still poor and powerless? In fact, majority of them cannot pay their bills!
Many of them are no longer producing movies and have turned to political campaigners to make money for their survival and welfare. Several of them spent more time at political campaign rallies than on film locations in 2015. And none of them has even produced a documentary on the 2015 presidential campaigns like the thrilling “An African Election” by Jarreth Merz on the 2008 presidential elections in Ghana, http://anafricanelection.com/.
