Stephene Okereke Picks April For Wedding As Fiance, Linus Lures America To Establish Movie Academy In Nigeria
They will be tying the knot on April 21st, 2012.
There's an exclusive guest list and the would-be couple have already started calling and asking the quests where their Invites should be sent.
Meanwhile, Nigeria's entrepreneur and media consultant, Linus Idahosa, who was on a recent tour to the US made a passionate case for the local burgeoning film and entertainment industry. Linus Idahosa is on a mission like no other. Basking in the euphoria and success of his recent United States tour to create awareness of the massive potentials in Nigeria's creative industry, he enthused about Nigeria's potential gains from renewed interests from the top echelon of the American entertainment sector.
More specifically, he wishes to establish partnerships with American movie studios to build a full-service production studio and academy in Nigeria. This, he hopes, will produce original motion pictures for cinema audiences across Africa and the world. He also revealed plans for an innovative distribution model for digital content and advertising, called the D-BOX.
"I want the world to see the beauty and great potentials of Nigeria through its creative sector," Idahosa said.
"Nigeria can be a world leader in entertainment and my dream is to enable that happen."
Wife of the US Deputy Secretary of State, Diana Villers Negroponte, a Brookings Institute diplomat and a global funder of major women projects in Africa and around the world, called Idahosa an "awesome and dynamic individual, who has a great vision. His passion extends to providing new opportunities to youths and women that can only lead to a brighter future for Nigeria."
