From audio-visual professionals, more attention for archiving and preservation

Calls for more attention by government of all levels for audiovisual archiving and preservation, including adequate funding, has been canvassed by audiovisual professionals in Nigeria. Rising from a one-day National Conference on Audiovisual Archiving in Nigeria, held recently at the Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja, participants discussed extensively issues militating against the establishment, funding and promotion of Audiovisual Archiving in Nigeria and resolved that, indeed all hands should be on deck, along with appropriate legislations and funding, for the operations of Audiovisual Archiving in Nigeria to thrive, in line with global practices. The Conference, organized by the National Film Video and Sound Archive, (NFVSA), established by the Nigerian Film Corporation, was intended to among others, create awareness on the need to preserve Nigeria’s audiovisual heritage, build the capacity of audiovisual archivists, conservationists and curators. Formation of Professional Associations for Archiving and Preservation formed part of the objectives of the one-day conference with the theme: ‘’ Audiovisual Archiving in Nigeria – the Challenges and Prospects’’. A Communiqué capturing the issues germane to Audiovisual Archiving and Preservation was issued at the end of the Conference. The professionals resolved among other resolutions that: government should as a matter of urgency give speedy approval to the National Policy on Preservation and Conservation; that government should make the National Film Video and Sound Archive a legal depository for all audio-visual materials produced in Nigeria, about Nigeria and on Nigeria; that the National Film Video and Sound Archive should be a National Center for the preservation of all audio-visual materials in Nigeria; that Audio Visual Archives and Libraries in Nigeria should have written Operational manual (Policy) to guide its programmes and activities and that all establishments that employ Audio-Visual Archivists in Nigeria should as a matter of urgency ensure that the archivists receive specialized training both within and outside Nigeria to equip them with the required knowledge and skills in film preservation, restoration, documentation and use. Also the professionals urged government to improve funding of Audio Visual Archiving in Nigeria and that Government and the private sector should invest in audio-visual infrastructure in Nigeria. Similarly they called on government at all levels to establish Audio Visual Archives to ensure effective national coverage. The Audio Visual professionals canvassed the need for audio visual Archivists in Nigeria to form a National Network of Audio-Visual Archivists to enhance interrelationships and resource sharing. They also stressed the need for a national Survey of Audio Visual holdings to be carried out by the Audio Visual Archivists to establish the materials available nationwide and their state.  The survey they say, should cover not only public film archives but also privately owned film archives. Similarly they urged Audio Visual Archivists to at regular intervals organize enlightenment and advocacy programmes aimed at sensitizing policy makers and the general public on the importance of Audio-Visual Archiving. The communiqué, according to the Head, National Film Video and Sound Archive (NFVSA) Mrs. Chinwe Oliwe, sums up the renewed commitment of audiovisual professionals in Nigeria to address all issues inhibiting the effective policy takeoff of audiovisual archiving, assuring that Nigeria’s audiovisual heritage  (music, film, etc) will not be lost.

Dependable RMD and Ego Boyo set to Tango on 'Mr. X Family'

* To Premiere on May 6 on African Magic

By Shaibu Husseini (First published in The Guardian on April 21st)

If you are a social media and television hobbyist and you have not come across a promo material on a
RMD on the set of Mr. X Family'
new television series titled ‘Mr. X Family’, then you may need to check your browser or update your cable subscription. To say that the buzz title on social media and on television is the ‘Mr. X Family’ television series is to be stating the obvious.
Not that there is anything new about birthing a television series. But there is something that makes this series arguably the most anticipated. First, it features two of Nigeria’s dependable actors Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) and Ego Boyo and secondly, RMD as the actor’s actor is simply called and Ego Boyo who were both constant visitors to home as long as that award winning series by Amaka Igwe ‘Checkmate’ lasted, are reuniting for some measured acting performance nearly 22 years after they featured in the award winning movie ‘Violated’.
Also, this time, RMD is not just on call as an actor, but he signs the series as Producer. It will be his first major television series production and the actor, lawyer, publisher, Public Relations practitioner and former Commissioner for Culture and Tourism in Delta State is excited at the prospect of the series which premieres on May 6 on African Magic.  Sharing the news of their reunion on screen on social media, RMD wrote: ‘’ I hope that getting back together again on TV will tickle fans of Ann and Segun and the fans of Tega and Peggy, who have been craving to have them grace their TV screens again. Ego and I are pretty excited about this and we hope the excitement catches on’’.

Promoted as a drama but with a tinge of comedy, RMD would not give out the meat of the narrative that make-up the series. The tall and well-built actor says he wants viewers to guess what roles they will be playing on ‘Mr. X Family’. Recall that on Checkmate, the character that RMD played ‘Segun Kadiri’ was always at loggerhead with ‘Ann Haastup’, which was the role Ego Boyo played. And in ‘Violated’, RMD was cast as Tega while Ego Boyo played Peggy. He had said: ‘we are curious to see how many people or if anyone can correctly guess what we are back together as….Mr. and Mrs.? Secret Lovers? Siblings? Colleagues? Somebody? Anybody? Let the guessing game begin’’.
Even though RMD would not say if he would return in this series as Segun Kadiri, an enemy-turned-lover of Ann Haastrup in ‘Checkmate’ or as Tega, a wealthy man who falls in love and marries Ego Boyo's character, Peggy in the movie ‘Violated’, fans say they cannot wait to see RMD and Ego feature as the iconic pair again.
Although early set pictures released revealed RMD in a family pose, sources close to the crew hinted that the story revolves round RMD and Ego Boyo.  RMD explains his relationship with Ego Boyo thus: ‘’My journey with Ego Boyo started nearly 30 years ago, our first encounter being on the production of Checkmate when my dear friend Amaka Igwe pulled me in as the villain Segun Kadiri on the highly coveted television soap. One of the most remarkable things about Ego is that despite the fact that she is born with a silver spoon into the family of the highly respected late Justice Nnamani, she was super disciplined (she still is), very humble and extremely committed’’

He also explained talked about how their status on screen rose. He said: ‘’our status as Nigerian TV sweethearts rose with the movie Violated, as Tega and Peggy became the toast of Violated fans. Since then Ego has gone ahead to becoming wife, mother, accomplished business woman and the .President of international Women’s Society. Over 25 years later, Tega and Peggy are back together again on my new TV show. I can only hope that getting back together again will tickle fans of Ann Haastrup and Segun Kadiri and the fans of Tega and peggy who have been craving to have them grace their television screens again.  Ego and I are pretty excited about this and hope the excitement catches on’’
An iconoclastic actor, RMD is clearly one of Nigeria’ top celebrities. A top rated actor with vast credits, the Warri, Delta State native has had a remarkable career as an actor and has indeed enjoyed super roles on stage and the movie turf. Acting for the actor’s actor who has proved to be a world-class material, came naturally. As a young boy growing up in Warri, Eyimofe was the acclaimed king of boys. His family’s little home in Warri, was usually a beehive of performances and laughter. It was the meeting point of those in RMD’s age bracket whom he had some form of control over. As a tot, RMD was particularly a “terribly” shy person, so his best escape was to always be in front of the people - his mates, acting or telling jokes that kept them delighted.
RMD after he received the AMAA 2016 Life Time Achievement Award 
Born in Warri, Delta State to a mother (who had a tremendous influence on his life) and who until her death was a trader and a father who until his demise in 1990 worked for the Nigerian Ports Authority Warri, the actors actor schooled briefly at the Roman Catholic Mission School, Warri and the famous Midwest College. At the wake of the indigenization policy, young Richard was sent to the Anglican Secondary School, Okpara waterside and then to St. Patrick’s College Asaba. Upon completion of his secondary school education, RMD proceeded to the University of Benin. He graduated four years later having bagged a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts majoring in Dramatic Theatre and Criticism. A lawyer who has been called to the Nigerian Bar, the former publisher of Mr. Magazine and star of many stage and screen productions including the popular Michael Power series, RMD is married to the broadcaster turned communication consultant Jumobi Mofe Damijo nee Adegbesan and their marriage is blessed with children.

Mike Ezuruonye’s ‘Divorce Not Allowed’ is Trending

Talented actor and filmmaker, Mike Ezuruonye has
moved on from the success of Brother Jekwu at the cinemas to serving another Nollywood comedy drama. This time, he is doing comedy with a serious message for couples and lovers. His latest work, ‘Divorce Not Allowed’ opened in cinemas across the country last week. Ezurounye explained that he was inspired to make the movie because he realized that one of the reasons the world would continue to witness incessant breakups, divorce and unhappy marriages, is because people have stopped fighting for their marriages. In his words: "Marriages continue to crash today because many people give up too easily on their marriages. People have simply stopped fighting for their marriages and when you fail to fight for what you believe in, you have lost the fight already. That's because you didn't even make the effort. I made the movie 'Divorce Not Allowed' because I want people to start fighting for their marriages again in order for us to have a better world. Imagine if all married couples, regardless of their challenges decide that whatever the cost, they would make their marriage work, would divorce still be as rampant as it is today? This is the exact message we hope this movie will pass across even as it’s served in comedy".  The movie centers on issues young couples face in marriage and how their resolutions sometimes threaten to shake the foundation of their love. The hilarious movie parades an array of stars such as Bolanle Ninalowo, Iyabo Ojo, Angela Okorie, Eniola Badmus, Mike Ezuruonye and other worthy actors who were stellar in their delivery
