Project on the ground is 2 great movies with good story lines “Deja Vu” and “The Devil’s Orchard” as directed by Saheed Apanpa. He’s gifted and very talented. He’s a great director to work with.

Our choice of cast is the right fit for this project and could deliver the characters that we are looking for. We always want to bring something different to Nollywood so our viewers/ audience/ Nollywood fans could relate to the movie.

It’s one industry that has helped the nation solve unemployment for a long time now.
Government and minister of culture could fight for author rights and vote good laws that benefits the actors because Nollywood makes the world see Africa different and enriches the culture.
