1. Mainframe Films
The Opomulero of Nollywood
Is there anything to be said of this production company that is not already known? For years now, Mainframe has been stealing hearts with original African content of high quality. Tunde Kelani understands the concept of staying relevant. He understands it so much so that Mainframe doesn’t have to struggle to be relevant. For a company that produces a lot of Yoruba movies, it does not lack general audience. It is accepted by all ethnicity and the messages being passed are as clear as crystal. To further illustrate it deservedness for the first position in this elite list, it is worth nothing that Mainframe won the CCHub Cultural Shift challenge where movie making met with ICT innovations and marathon computer coding. And believe me, they had good competition, yet Opomulero (the app developed my Mainframe Films) came out tops due to the great blend of ingenuity and indigenous contents.
2. Royal Arts Academy
Honestly, when a movie production company produces as many movies as the Royal Arts Academy has produced in a year, I usually take my thoughts off them as the movies prove to be amateurish. But there is something different about the Royal Arts Academy. With Desmond Elliot snatching up the role of Director in most of their recent productions, the academy has proven that they have a lot of potential and great directing minds. Headed by Emem Isong, the Royal Arts Academy engages constantly in creating brighter minds and building up feature talents.
