Soundtracks are very important part of a movie, as it helps to build the tone and mood of a film or series.

Nigerian series like 'Super Story,' 'Everyday People,' 'Tales by Moonlight,' among others would always be remembered for and with their soundtracks.

According to Nigerian-born singer/songwriter and pianist, Kaline Akinkugbe, Nigerian directors need to have a larger budget for music in films.

"More directors just need to have a larger budget for music, and be more susceptible to find a composer who can make the scoring a lot better. It's getting better definitely. I'm looking forward to working with more people in Nollywood," Kaline said.

She made the above statement in an exclusive interview with Pulse Nigeria, where she also spoke on the importance of soundtracks and music score in movies;


"There are some situations where you prefer more of soundtracks as opposed to dramatic scoring. For example, 'Waiting to Exhale,' people remember the music, remember the songs, remember Brandy Mary J Blige and Whitney Houston," she said.

"But there are some films that definitely need dramatic orchestration, or even electronic scoring.

"And it's very important, because I feel that it definitely helps to move the story along, it carry the story along. We have all heard of films that we loved because of the music ; 'Star Wars' for example, 'Godfather,' 'Doctor Zhivago,' 'Lord of the Rings,' we will remember the music as well as the actors."
