July 16, 2013 – “Nigerian Movie Producers To Build Nollywood Village”-  Zik Okafor, President

The President, Association of Movie Producers, Zik Okafor, said that plans were on by the film industry to build a Nollywood Village.

Okafor told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Tuesday that the gesture was to mark Nollywood’s forthcoming 20 years anniversary celebration.

“We want to set up the Nollywood house, build a magnificent edifice with the inscription `Nollywood’ on it as they have in other climes.

“So that when anybody comes to Nigeria, there is a place they can go and say this is Nollywood village and can get what they want in one place.

“We have been operating from our homes, so we should have a base where we can be located,’’ Okafor said.

According to him, we want a place that can contain television actors, different guild associations, creative designers and so many others in the same environment.

The president said the place, where the village would be sited, would be announced during the anniversary.

Okafor said a Nollywood foundation would also be set up to cater for veterans in the industry.
