Aki and Pawpaw turn producers; form their own company

Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) and Osita Iheme (Paw Paw) have formed their own film company and are currently working on their first movie, a comedy which will be released before the end of the year to mark their ten years in Nollywood.

But seriously, what is going on in Nollywood? Should each and every actor or actress become a producer? Is that what pertains in Hollywood where all the star artiste produce and direct their movies? Or rather have the likes of James Cameron and Steven Spielberg who continue to raise the bar of movie production, with a select few veteran artistes venturing into production also.

It is not a bad idea in itself for artiste to want to produce themselves, but what is worrying is the lack of coordination and complete defragmentation of the process. Hopefully, they can soon begin to consolidate with mergers of forces and interest to avoid a flood of low standard movies in the market.
