Nollywood: Dare Olaitan advocates for National Fund, tax breaks

Filmmaker and the CEO of Singularity Media, Dare Olaitan, is advocating for the support of both the government, and private sector for the movie industry of the country, Nollywood, to grow bigger.

The filmmaker stated that, “There should be tax benefits and production rebates. There should also be a National Fund that sponsors films made to enhance Nigeria’s image, just like the British have with the British Broadcasting Corporation for one.”

Speaking on his latest movie titled, ‘Ajosepo’, Olaitan said, “The movie deals with the traditional belief known as magun (a charm to punish adulterers). By bringing in this folklore-inspired element, we are able to dramatically interrogate the themes of love and family.
