The managing director of the factory, Mr Gbenga Titiloye made the pledge during a meeting with the members of  the durbar committee in Ilorin.

“The factory will project the Ilorin Emirate durbar positively and showcase the rich culture and economic benefits derivable, particularly to the international community. I believe that doing this will erase erroneous notion some people have about Africa.

“Such coverage will propagate the rich African culture to the western world as most of the potentials in Ilorin Emirate are money spinning ventures, which if well tapped, will boost the economy of not only the state but that of the entire nation and Africa at large”, he said.

Titiloye said that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq established the factory  to divert traffic and open Kwara to the International community for film production and training of broadcasters as well as discourage brain-drain in the industry.

He added that Kwara plays a frontline and unique role in film production in Nigeria.
