Nollywood Producers who shone in 2015
Your favorite shows have a production team behind them, ensuring that every single thing you eventually love about it is perfect… or almost perfect.
And heading that team, is the producer aka the guy who might not be financing the project but who has to make sure everything goes right.
Here are the producers of the biggest/best Nollywood efforts of 2015.
Tope Oshin – Fifty
Tope Oshin is one of the big names behind the scenes in Nollywood. And even though she is mostly credited for her work as a director, the award-winning filmmaker is responsible for producing different short films.
And this year, she shone as a producer for the highly publicised movie, Fifty.
Watch the trailer for Fifty.
Kunle Afolayan – October 1
This one needs no introduction.
Kunle Afolayan gains a spot on our list of Nollywood Producers Who Shone In 2015 courtesy of his movie October 1 which although was released for cinematic viewing last year, still made waves this year.
And shall we begin to count the number of awards Uncle Kunle grabbed with this movie?
Watch teaser for October 1
Omoni Oboli – First Lady
Omoni Oboli is not new to producing, the actress who also produced an initial effort, Being Mrs Elliot, definitely had experience with producing a movie.
Which was probably why her movie First Lady became one of the biggest movies this year.
Uduak Isong – Falling
Uduak Isong has proved to her audience many times in the past that she’s got this Nollywood business. The producer of Desperate Housegirls who can pretty much sell ice to Eskimos shone brighter than any form of light this year with her movie, Falling.
And since we know Uduak can only get better, we stay falling in love with her works.
Watch trailer for Falling.
Fathia Balogun – Iya Alalake
Faithia Balogun is already a known name in Nollywood, and whenever the superstar actress touches a movie, it pretty much turns to gold.
That was the case with her recent production effort Iya Alalake which although was produced last year, made big waves this year.
Watch the trailer for Iya Alalake.
Chris Ihidero – MTV Shuga
Shuga returned with a bang this year and while giving out credits, we cannot help but give some to the producer of Shuga 2015 who happens to be Chris Ihidero.
While he might not be your regular celebrity Producer or a constant on red carpets, this man ensured fans of the hit show had one of the best seasons of the show on their screens this year.
Now who needs sugar when that Shuga is in capable hands?
Watch the sneak peek for Shuga Season 4
Funke Akindele – Jenifa’s Diary
Funke Akindele brought her Jenifa franchise back to life on the small screen this year. And with the excitement from fans all over, it is clear that the talented actress has won again as a producer.
And for this reason, she lands on our list of Nollywood producers who shone in 2015.
Rogers Ofime – Hotel Majestic, Tinsel, The Johnsons
Basically, this man is responsible for almost all of the shows that are worth watching on TV. And while you might get carried away by the stars of these hit shows, do not sleep on the man that is Rogers Ofime and that has given us all the opportunity to view the finest dramas on TV.
He is the man Hotel Majestic, Tinsel and The Johnsons have in common.
And oh yeah, your Africa Magic Original movies too are courtesy of his expertise as a producer.
Give it up for the one man who is probably the only one who has done that in Nollywood history.
