A who’s who list of the biggest players

They’re the masters of the multimedia universe: the studio heads, directors, and stars who light the fuse that begins a movie; the TV producers and performers who dominate prime-time (and the network executives who can make them stars); the writers who command astronomical advances and the editors and publishers who command the best-seller lists; the musicians and moguls who can pack adoring crowds into stadiums and record stores. State Governors/business moguls who have invested so much in the entertainment sector in their various ways.

In this issue, we offer a roll call of the 115 most powerful men and women in Nigeria’s entertainment Industry today. Some perform in the public eye; others prefer life in the background, pulling invisible strings. This year, at least, they share one thing. They’ve got the power.

A few ground rules: Those who made the list were chosen on the basis of their accomplishments in the last 2 years.

Who are the most powerful people in entertainment? Men and women who, for better or worse, have the authority to get a project started or stopped, who influence what you see, read, or hear, whose talent, connections, or reputation guarantee that attention will be paid. In most cases, it’s a lot more than attention. Most of these people didn’t simply have power handed to them — they took it, and once they seize it, they don’t easily relinquish it.
