Jamski, DECENTplatform, Nollywood, Blockchain Banking and Orlando Martins
Yesterday on Victoria Island, I had another meeting on blockchain technology for the Nigerian entertainment industry and Corporate Nigeria at Jamski, the best Jamaican restaurant in Nigeria.
We discussed #Nollywood, @decentplatform, Fintech and how blockchain banking will advance financial services and enhance efficiency.
I discussed the production of my romantic documentary, "I Saw Her On Orlando Martins Street" in honour of the first Nigerian #Hollywood star who lived in the neighbourhood I grew up on Lagos Island when he returned home to Nigeria. I said an Orlando Martins Cinema will be a befitting honour for his legacy. There is enough space for the cinema on Orlando Martins Street opposite the popular Tafawa Balewa Square. There are very big abandoned government buildings on the street that can be restructured for the cinema and with a shopping arcade. A bank can finance it and make a lot of money from the cinema and tourist attraction with the boost to the public relations of the bank. It is a win-win situation for all.
I am still on the preproduction of the documentary film and on fund raising drive to start the principal photography.
Whatever is worth doing at all should be done well or don't do it at all.
