It no news that the Nigerian Film Industry (Nollywood) is the second biggest film industry in the world. It only comes second to the United States Hollywood.
What’s more is that the industry generates $600 million yearly, while also creating employment for more than one million people. The development of the industry is considered wonderful news by the government as it continues to contribute to the nation’s economy.
For Jacob Odedekuma, Director of Media, Nollytainment Inc. USA, an entertainment company set up with focus to immortalise Nollywood superstars, exclusivity, uniqueness, and novelty are three qualities that set industry apart and extension the Superstar NFT Collection, an extraordinary project put in place by the company.
Speaking on the project, Odedekuma said the maiden edition of tribute/immortalisation is dedicated to three iconic figures of the Nigerian film industry – Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), Kate Henshaw, and Odunlade Adekola.
He stated that Nollytainment Inc USA is set to make cinematic history under the captivating banner, “Nollywood Superstars NFT Collection”, adding that the initiative stands as a testament to the indomitable legacies of RMD, Kate Henshaw, and Odun Adekola.
“In an unprecedented, ground breaking move that promises to transcend the boundaries of fan engagement and digital collectibles for Nollywood, Nollytainment Inc USA is preparing to unveil exclusive NFT Collections to immortalize these superstars on October 1, Nigeria’s Independence Day.
“This monumental fans collectible release is the first in a series of collections to honour the icons of the big screen in Nollywood, marking the beginning of a grand journey to celebrate and immortalise other illustrious Nollywood superstars,” Odedekuma said.
According to him, each NFT in the inaugural collection represents a unique piece of Nollywood’s finest, meticulously crafted and designed to encapsulate the essence of these cinematic legends.
