Gov Fashola's statement enrages Nigerian film makers...

"Let us understand that, they do not dislike you. It’s not that they have a personal quarrel with you but there is an economic opportunity there and that is the best way [pirates] have responded to it." Fashola made the statement at the opening of the Association of Movie Producers (AMP) Eko International Film Festival at the National Theatre,this week.

He referred to pirates  as“our brothers and sisters” and asked movie makers to befriend them and constructively engage them in order to have a win-win situation in the fight against piracy in Nigeria.

Movie practitioners aren't happy about the statement he made...they think he's supporting piracy.

Ruggedman to 9ice

"You tried to tarnish my image and that of your wife because you wanted to sell CDs, God bless you. You can tease me all you want, but it would never change the fact that the first big stage you got on was through me. The first award you won was through me. You started making money after I introduced you to the world. The wife you married, I introduced to you. The first child you got was from the woman I introduced to you. I helped you come up in the industry…Never pay back good with evil. Be respectful to your elders.” Ruggedman to 9ice from his new track - A word is enough for the 9ice.
