Nollywood has improved in its movie production over a period of time now. So as the year is wrapping up you will agree with me that they have had a great year.
As the year comes to a close, the box office is buzzing with the release of the romantic comedy movie “The Wedding Party,” and is on pace to set another industry record just one year after “Fifty” ended the year 2015 with impressive numbers.
2016’s movie industry highlights include the Toronto International Film Festival which focused on Lagos, Nigeria, as part of its City to City program.
