Despite the plan of a Five Cities infrastructure development, we have designed to be launched as NollyShop.Com – a uniquely developed card and application that is to be linked up with entertainment/media related businesses, diverse merchants, food/beverage companies & outlets, hospitality and allied outfits nationwide, with the vision of leveraging our brand capital due to the fact that the brand- phrase ‘Nollywood Film City’ solely belongs to us. Due to our emergent concept of integrating education, film production, real estate, agriculture, internet media payment/distribution and tourism development in Nigeria it is projected that the entire project value chain would present huge profitability windows especially through the introductory scheme of a small scale prototype construction of the flagship in Owerri Imo State to be known as NOLLYWOOD FILM CITY AND PALM RESORT. This is particularly due to original concept of integrating the palm plantation with a cattle ranch/goat sanctuary including aqua culture which shall serve the thrust of the tourism activities. It is important to note that at this point in our nation’s history the question of cattle husbandry has taken a huge political question rather than its place as an economic proposition. Therefore with the proprietary interest of the name Nollywood Film City through the legal registration of NOLLYWOOD FILM CITY AND PALM RESORTS LTD as a special purpose vehicle at the Corporate Affairs Commission is ready to commence project implementation. Coupled with the fact that there is the immediate need for non oil revenue diversification in Nigeria especially considering that local tourism is a high income earner, we are encouraged to seek strategic investors or financiers to begin project execution immediately.
