New-York based Nigerian-American Writer/Producer/Actor, Adetoro Makinde!(Yes, we are claiming a star again,and no NAS is not Nigerian!)She's done it all--the acting, the producing, the writing...wont be too surprised if we find out she sings as well...She's most definitely got the looks!!! She's starred in several films,most of them indie,like "In Time","She Spies","For Charity's Sake" which she wrote herself amongst others and produced/co-produced "In Time","3 Minutes","Inspired By.." amongst others. HBO featured "in Time" for a while when it got released. Here are a few pictures of Adetoro in action...Have fun!
She is one of the foremost movie directors in Nigeria today. One of the few contemporary film makers who have had their films on celluloid. Amaka's celluloid film is A Barber's wisdom - a film which is part of M-Net's new direction on film project with Nigerian producers. Her films have drawn international recognition to the home video industry. She is producer of the award winning movie Forever,the long standing soap opera Checkmate and "Solitaire" which features a stellar cast like Iretola Doyle,RMD,Teju,Omotola Ekeinde,Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey.... A prolific writer and movie director. We salute you!
The prolific(i always wanted to use that word!)writer-cum-producer also acts but you wont see her involved in just any film...she makes a film lyk only once a year,but when she does...you better recognise,cos it's always a well made film!Nicknamed EGO by friends and fans alike, she remains one of the very few Nigerian celebs who are serious about their jobs and havent been blighted by any scandal.She's based in Lagos but travels across the globe to get work done.She can be contacted by email firstname.lastname@example.org(and no that isnt made up;-))She schooled in University of Benin, directs and produces her own films as a hobby(her words!)She's most known for her roles in Violated,Forever,To Live Again,Checkmate and the screen plays Medea,Tartuffe.
Nigerian California based lawyer Ms Mildred Okwo is a new force to be reckoned with now in the Film industry since the success of "30 days the movie".She decided to cast Genevieve Nnaji in the film of which she was the Executive producer and has not regretted it since.Okwo is coincidentally Genevieve's manager and attorney (uhmmnnn...). The movie which hit the screens earlier this year was a collaborative effort between Temple Productions owned by Ego Boyo and a US-based film productions company managed by Mildred Okwo who trained as an actress at the University of Benin before she proceeded to the United States where she read a second degree in Law.
