June 22, 2013 – Why Do Nigerian Film Producers Play Loud Music?

Please I have a serious question that continues to bother me about Nigerian movies.

Can someone please tell me or help me ask Nollywood Producers, why they always have to play music (and sometimes so loud) during their films?

This is one of the most stupid thing they keep doing and it appears no one is correcting them. How many of the Western movies do they see with this mediocre production style?

Please can someone tell me why this has gone on for so long and when will it change?

    Loud backgrond music is a major flaw of most Nigerian movies. I have complained loudly online about it, but I don’t seem to see any improvement.

    I wonder if the audio engineers ever review their work, so they can do a better job next time. The Internet is full of resources on how to edit movies properly. Why don’t they use them?

    Also, Nollywood can sponsor some talented tech people to learn movie editing in foreign schools. Then once those people graduate, they can then train other Nigerians.

    Most of the movies have very good storylines. But the senseless loud background music just take over and ruin the movies, to the point that the dialogs are drowned out most of the time. This is oughful.

    Furthermore, some of the music are so irritating to the ears, when in fact, the web is full of royalty-free soundtracks.

    Nollywood this is the year 2013, fix this major issue please.
