Desmond Elliot in Big Trouble

Nigerian Movie Producer and actor Desmond Ellliot is in hot soup over his recent announcement that video clubs must be stopped.
The actor was one of the well-known faces of the English genre of Nigerian movie industry, who were feted recently by Oronto Douglas, the Senior Special Assistant to President Jonathan on Research and Strategy.

Although, the idea of the informal dinner held at the Sky Bar of Eko Hotel and suites was planned to present the screen gods and goddesses the opportunity to vent their complaint in regards to the dying movie industry, some leading movie marketers and video club owners have vowed to deal with Desmond for his utterances. While Desmond might have spoken his mind, nfc scooped that some marketers, who also double as video club owners, have come together to make a decision that they will in no way buy or sell any movie that has the face of Desmond Elliot if he will not apologise. Pleading anonymity, one of the top executives of the Association of Video Club Owners said, “For Desmond to have made that statement, it shows that he does not really understand the importance of video clubs in the crisis ridden movie industry. How many people would like to waste their money on a movie with the same story lines with many parts? Apart from being a rent outlet for movies, video clubs also sell films.”

Nonetheless, one of the nollywood actors, who confided in nfc said that there is a need to regulate the activity of video clubs and total discard isn’t the solution as argued by Desmond because piracy continues to be bane of the movie industry. Furthermore, a bird in the know squealed that Desmond’s utterances, have set some of his colleagues, who also has video clubs against him.

So would you buy or sell any movie having the face of Desmond Elliot ?
