    That is good. However it is sad that the Alaba marketer-pirates succeeded in making sure that the producer Kunle Afolayan could not make profit from the DVD aspect of his product. Ultimately this sad development is not about Afolayan but the Nigerian film industry survival as a whole.

    Nice. Hopefully for the next film, this will happen sooner.

    Re: Bafe’s comment on Alaba marketer-pirates: I watched the film pirated. Bought it in the street. It’s far easier to get pirated products, the price and quality are satisfactory…they’re just superior at distribution, it appears.
    Now how to make it work for the content producers is why we went to school, why we have lawyers (maybe not just to retroactively sue but to constructively get us a system that works.) If this question really really interests you, I took a couple of free “law and economics” courses on coursera and you may poke about there too. property/ownership/usage, history of copyright, how the media and tech industries were constructed on the legal side, ongoing fairness debates etc. I don’t have the answers, and I do support our creatives, just saying, how do we go from support to taking over…

      I never buy pirated copies of music, movies and books from creatives that I support, respect or identify with…and this includes African Americans.
      Say for instance “The Perfect Guy” is not showing at a theater near me…I’ll just wait for Redbox to carry it than go online and stream illegally.
      Nobody told me not to just an intuitive integrity issue I guess…one of the very few I have…hehehe.

      Not sure what ‘African Americans’ has to do with this… But is streaming movies online really illegal? Hmmmm… Morally bankrupt? Possibly. Illegal? See you in court.

    Africa Magic has actually showed the making of this movie too often that we are bored/frustrated and don’t look forward to it anymore (my opinion).
