African Entertainment arrives with new movie
The Nigerian film industry is set to experience more sensation as another international organisation known as the African Entertainment Group. It is made up of three groups behind which are Pascal Atuma, Chika Alakwe, Duben Ikebuego and Frances Chiejena. It has films such has Only in America, My American Nurse, Okoto the Messenger and The Trace to its credit.
But African Entertainment’s first major movie in Nigeria is entitled No more Bloodshed and it is going to largely depend on Nigerian actors and actresses. According to one of the drivers of the group, Pascal Atuma, the film will make the best the industry can offer.
He says, “We love to depend on quality. Anyone who has watched our movies will appreciate the fact that we are always original in our concepts and execution. We are interested in world-class stars. But we also want to look inwards for raw talents to help develop too.”
Another leg of the company’s mission is a talent hunt project that will, according to Atuma, help African Entertainment to fulfil its dream to boost professionalism in the industry and give young acts breakthrough.
“We are going to conduct a talent search because there is a lot of people in Nigeria and Africa in general who have talents, but do not have the opportunity to make use of it. There is going to be an audition, which is going to be free, where anyone who is interested in any aspect of entertainment can come forward and exhibit their talents. If, as a candidate, you perform well, African Entertainment Group will sponsor you to any lvel to assist you to become known globally.”
