Meanwhile Amodu made emphasis on the fact that the movie industry has been affected not even by the pandemic but for about 5 to 6 years now, and that this effect took off when everything was digitized and the decoders came in to play, “I think the COVID-19 era is the best time for movies to sell because people are mostly indoors and watching movies but unfortunately, people here do not pay attention to the movies.

“However, with my strategy that I am bringing on board, that is my dream of becoming somebody who will champion the Igala world as regards having an Igala movie channel which I launched ten years ago and am still working on, I believe we should have one movie viewing centre where people can log onto”.

“For upcoming artistes, I think they have a long way to go, either as an actor, a writer or a crew member.

They should possess perseverance because disappointment is the order of the day in the movie sector.”He further gave a word of advice to the up and coming actors and people who intend to venture into it that it has to do with his/her thinking.” I advise they should package themselves also.”
