Movie Producer Blessing Egbe Explains Why Her Relationship With Silverbird Broke Down

Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Blessing Effiom Egbe, has revealed why she does not see eye-to-eye with Silverbird. Egbe made this known in a book entitled ‘Ladies Calling These Shots’. The book was written by ace journalist Niran Adedokun and features 17 female film directors.






Before getting into Nollywood, Egbe said she had secured a modelling contract with Silverbird as far back as 1999 — but her path would eventually lead to the movie industry.


The filmmaker said after directing her first feature film, ‘Two Wives and a Baby’, it suffered a massive loss at the box office, putting her in debt with her investors. Because of its flop, she asked for its removal from the cinemas but Egbe said she later found out that all the cinemas granted her request except Silverbird Abuja.


The writer said Egbe reached out to Silverbird but got no favourable response, and that they also failed to drop the movie. Egbe went on to sue the cinemas with the matter still in court till date. According to the author, “The situation brought about a frozen relationship between the Blessing Egbe brand and cinema owners in the country”.


To pay back the N11 million she owed investors, Egbe said she had to take to the streets and the internet to sell the movie. It turned out to be successful and she was able to settle her debt. Ms. Egbe is the director of ‘Lekki Wives’, ‘The Women’, among other flicks.



*So they gave her a Modelling job but refused to allow her succeed at something else?wickedness!!!

The movie made no sense anyway. Just like Wives on Strike and Omoni's coming out with a second part. I won't be seeing it. Thanks.

No wonder that movie the women lasted just one week at Silverbird cinema,
They have been showing dance to the beat repeated since September.
