"I'm not the person to ask. I think you need to ask a filmmaker whose work has gone to the cinemas. But I do know for example, "Fifty,"  Fifty has been in the cinema for five weeks, it's still getting quite a following.

Is it the publicity that is done to make people aware, and is it the quality of what is done as well? Now, the mindset is 'why do I need to go and watch a Nigerian movie that I'm going to watch on Television in the next couple of days?

But then, the experience of going to the cinema and watching. I totally enjoyed watching "Fifty" at the cinema, it was such a beautiful experience.

Are there some films that I see on Africa Magic that I want to go and watch in the cinemas? - I'm not sure. Because sometimes I think the directing can be so lazy."

Why do you think most  Nigerian films don't stay long in cinemas?
