THough this post was initially posted last year (8/2th/2009) i just had a feeling to re-post it to bring it to light and bump it back up, considering the amount of BS being put out lately.

Well no one does it best when it comes to titling nollywood movies horribly - Nollywood/Ghana Movie Industry. I could list a gazillion nollywood movies which had an absolute ridiculous titles, or title not related to the movie but i wont take too much space.
.
For now all i want to do is name specific keywords in the movie titles that surely needs to retire - these keywords have been use, reuse and abused. Some of them are just dead give away to the storyline.
.
Nollywood and Ghana Movie Industry we beg, please me a little creative - for once in your life.
.
Key Words:
- SEXY
- LOVE
- ROYAL
- KING
- QUEEN
- PRINCE
- PRINCESS
- BRIDE
- WOMAN
- MAN
- BABES (there is one out there now - stay clear)
- MY
- YOUR
- BEYOND
- DANGEROUS
- DEADLY
- DESPERATE
- BLOOD
- BATTLE
- ETC
.
Dont get me started with names used for characters which are absolutely ridiculous and the two directors well known for this nonsense is Frank Arase and Abdul Mumuni (producer/director for Beyonce, Kings is Mine, Princess Tyra etc). They use names such as CIARA, BEYONCE, SOLANGE, etc. I guess they havent used Michael Jackson yet, but we are waiting :lol: - I just heard Majid and Mercy have one coming out called "Shakira" - the day i heard it i almost choked laughing, I was like "chinekkeeeeeee" what else is new.:lol:
.
I use to pride my favourite dude Tchidi Chikere - proud igbo director/producer known for his beautiful scripted village set movies for using local and native igbo names (i learnt a lot about the igbo culture just by watching his movies) like Emeka, Chimezie, Amaka, Kelechi etc so beautiful and this is what i wish for some ghana producer to do too. But i must say Tchidi has been slipping this 2009, cos he has been using a lot of westernise names in some of his movies - however i give him the benefit of doucbt cos i know T will come correct when u least expect. I highly anticipate several of his movies soon specifically one starring Majid, Jim and my lovely dovely beautiful schnookooms friend (Hi Pearl :lol:) Uru Eke (starred in Widows Men).
.
I really wish my wishes come true where by nollywood start titling our movies with titles that make more sense.
