It was one burial that will remain etched on the minds of the people for a longtime.
If the dead could send words of appreciation to the living, there is no doubt that Chief Onyedi would have since done so.He would have sent words of effusive gratitude to all those who emptied into Azia, a sleepy town in Ihiala local government area of Anambra state on August 23, 2019 to give him a befitting burial.
Indeed, Azia stood still for a good man. A man who contributed immensely to the peace and development of the town, an industrialist and philanthropist who lent his shoulders to those in need.

Stop Promoting Mediocrity in Nollywood


The ingenuity of videographers in Nigeria produced the phenomenon of #Nollywood that was defined by guerrilla filmmaking with no budget or low budget. These cheap videos built the first and largest indie film industry in Africa.
You don't have to break the bank to make a hit movie that will make you smile to the bank. The phenomenal paranormal horror film, "The Blair Witch Project" shot 20 years ago in 1999 was made with only US$60,000, but grossed about US$249 million worldwide.
What matters most in filmmaking is not the size of your camera, but the size of your imagination.

Subscriptions for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and others Should Be Reduced by 100%

The subscription fees of top digital TV streaming platforms from #Netflix to #Hulu are too much and can be reduced by 100%.

"The Irishman" Was An Offer Hollywood Had To Refuse (And Only Netflix Could Accept)

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s THE IRISHMAN, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
