Nollywood and the Best Nigerian Female Directors


The NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series Book 1 and NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series Book 2 are becoming priced like gold from Amazon to Barnes & Noble and Lulu, the three major distributors.


The Book 3 should be ready this year by the grace of Almighty God. It would have been published in 2015, but I had to publish The Victory of Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Dream and I published LAGOS in MOTION: A Photo Album of Africa's Largest Megacity (Volume 1) in 2016. But the delay has given me more time for my important research on the best Nigerian female filmmakers which is the focus of NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series Book 3 with Michelle Bello on the cover.

Michelle Aisha Bello.

I discovered that 90 percent of the best Nigerian female directors in the film industry claim to be British Nigerian, including the trail blazer, Ngozi Onwurah, Remi Vaughan-Richards, Adaora Nwandu and Destiny Ekaragha. Branwen Okpako who was born in Nigeria to an Urhobo pharmacologist father and a Welsh librarian mother is called a German filmmaker. Then I cannot ignore the emergence of Kemi Adetiba, director of The Wedding Party, the highest grossing Nollywood movie so far and the Nigerian born African American filmmaker, Nneka Onuorah who is an outspoken feminist in the United States of America.





I have already included Sandra Mbanefo Obiago, Amaka igwe (of blessed memory), Tope Oshin-Ogun, Stephanie Linus, Chineze Anyaene, Omoni Oboli and Chika Anadu.

Notable Nigerian female filmmakers should update me on their outstanding movies before I publish the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series Book 3.

You can get the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series volumes if you have not collected them. They are listed on the most essential books on the African film industry, because they covered the facts on filmmaking in Nigeria and the rest of Africa.
