Nollywood Producer Sells Over One Million Copies of His Hit Home Video



A Nollywood producer Ifeanyi Onyekwelu, claims that he has sold over one million copies of his home videos on the terrifying crimes of kidnappers in Nigeria.

The Nollywood hit movie Most Wanted Kidnappers has broken all previous sales records in Nollywood, the popular Nigerian home videos movie industry by selling over one million copies so far according to the Aba based Nollywood moviemaker, Ifeanyi Onyekwelu, Producer and Director of the Most Wanted Kidnapper series.

From The King of Kidnappers to his Most Wanted Kidnappers starring popular Nollywood actors like Charles Awurum, Amaechi Muonagor, Eze Okechukwu, John Okafor and others, the movies have kept marketers busy in the eastern states where Nollywood is still booming.

A notable stakeholder in the Nigerian film industry Mr. Madu Chikwendu, founder of Leap International Film Festival (LIFF) in Aba confirmed that The Most Wanted Kidnappers has broken the sales record of Nollywood bestsellers like Living in Bondage, Nneka the Pretty Serpent, Osuofia in London, Dangerous Twins and other Nollywood blockbusters.

“He has sold over 500, 000 copies so far, “ said Mr. Chikwendu, who recently had a successful launch of his Leap International Film Festival in Aba, the commercial capital of the eastern states.
“Who says Nollywood has crashed? Asaba is now the production hub of Nollywood and movies are still being made frequently like in the heyday of home videos,” he added affirmatively.
