Biola Alabi Media has again raised the bar in the Nigerian Movie Industry with the plans lined up for the cinematic release of ” Lara and the Beat” on July 20.
The Nigerian Movie Industry aka Nollywood has been growing in leaps and bounds over the last decade as the growing cinema culture has encouraged producers, directors and all stakeholders to raise their game, if they desire to win a sizeable portion of the movie goers spend. It has also reduced the challenge of piracy as investors can recover some or all of their investments before the pirates begin to feast on their intellectual property.
These days it is common for locally produced (Nollywood) movies to displace Hollywood big budget movies at the Nigerian Cinemas and local box office. This is because Nigerians can easily identify with the stories depicted in Nollywood and if well produced, Nigerians will show so much love.
We are optismistic that ” Lara and the Beat” will do well in the market
