Yesterday, I was honored to attend City People Magazine’s tribute to veteran Nollywood producer Emem Isong to commemorate her fifteen-year career in the industry. Isong is the producer behind such hits as Emotional Crack, Private Sin, Games Men Play, Games Women Play, Guilty Pleasures, and Reloaded. Click here for my on-set coverage of her newest English-Ibibio feature with Desmond Elliott.
Among the industry insiders who praised Isong onstage was Rob Emeke Eze, Isong’s long-time marketer: “In 1997, I saw Breaking Point and was moved. I realized that the only way to let people know the talent of this young lady is to provide her the funds.”
Other attendees included Isong collaborators Stephanie Okereke, Uche Jombo, Desmond Elliott, and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde.
