For a long period, our colonial masters perform the functions similar to that of censor’s board as they dictate the tune of film production and development. It was not until 1970 that Nigeria saw a film production by Francis Oladele Calpenny films; Professor Wole Soyinka, Dapo Adetingba and pa. Orlando Martins were part of the cost.
