Editorial Reviews

"The book is a useful introductory text for students and researchers interested in the foundations of Nollywood as a cultural product in relation to other local and international media. . Students and scholars new to the sub-discipline will find the text comprehensive, helpfully cross-referenced, and a useful overview of the critical themes and issues in the history of Nollywood. By and large, Nollywood Central is without doubt a unique and enlightening tour in and around the Nigerian film industry." (Añulika Agina, Black Camera, Vol. 8 (2), 2017)
