Why Charles Novia Has Been Away From Nollywood

The CEO of November Productions, Charles Novia had an exclusive interview online with a 17 year old publisher explaining why after producing over 40 movies, soaps, and starting Teens Africa TV, he has more coming. Enjoy the excerpts:
Reporter: We seem not to be getting new movies much these days from Charles Novia Think stables as we used to before. What's going on? 
Novia: In almost two decades, I have produced and directed over 40 movies and numerous television series and programmes. I'm still in my forties and turn mid-forty this year. The reality about Nollywood for the pioneering school is that there is a passion, a panache and a pragmatism which comes with that generation. We saw it all then and are still seeing it all now. Or rather, speaking for myself, I think I'm not out of the game but I'm more restless and creatively roving at this point in my life. 
A decade ago, I woke up one day, at the height of my fame, success and traction as it were, after having produc…

Bugged for Life by Technology

Who send Facebook to start this 'See who's nearby' added to our 'locators' sef?
While in Festac Lagos, 2 days ago...some guy chatted me 'Hello Jenny, where in Lagos are you?' Since I don't know him and I'm used to Lagos residents always assuming that every other Nigerian (especially if you are a fine girl and write sense on Facebook) lives in Lagos, I quickly typed "I live in Abuja" Then he goes "My radar indicates that you are in Lagos"...I bursted into Laughter in my aloneness...and thought "Technology has turned us to Secret service officers without pay. Mtschewww Meanwhile some men and women who cheat on their spouses and some dubious business dealers maybe overlooking these features and keep on  'lying up and down'...destroying themselves by themselves. Lol
God is watching
... and now technology has borrowed some God-attitude and has also started watching too. 
You have been bugged for life! Get it! 

Why African CEOs Should Watch Kunle Afolayan's "The CEO"

One of the reasons why I went to the Silverbird Cinema to watch the highly acclaimed movie , The CEO produced by a highly creative and respected movie maker (in fact the best), Kunle Afolayan last night, was because of curiosity and then to get thoroughly educated.  His movies just schools one.

I love movies! Especially quality African stories and so i'm always the bout of laughter sometimes whenever we are game for a group cinema outing when it comes to choosing a common movie to watch.
