Dbanj launches scriptwriting platform for actors
Music star Oladapo Oyebanji, aka Dbanj, said on Wednesday that a platform for talented Nigerian actors to pitch their scripts for sponsorship would be launched on May 1.
He revealed it at the Nigeria Entertainment 2018 Conference on âUnderstanding Emerging Markets, Trends and Opportunitiesâ in Lagos.
Dbanj, who created a similar platform featuring talented musicians called Creative, Reality, Entertainment, Arts and Music (CREAM) in 2016, said the platform will provide actors with the ability to showcase their scripts.
The Koko Master said the random selection will be done on a monthly basis and CREAM will be responsible for all finances to ensure the most interesting ones are selected for production.
He said it would be a platform that would offer up-and-coming artists the ability to record their songs, shoot movies and videos for aspiring artists.
This would also make it possible to secure collaborations with established acts.
âThe first group of beneficiaries on the platform were Rayce, TK Swag, MKJ, Leke Benson, Legend Courage and recently Real Self.
âWe’ve been doing this for the music industry since 2016, we also want to rub off on potential actors and actresses because we realize that there are talent in this area as well that need help.
âEach month starting in May, we will choose 10 scripts that we think will interest viewers and they will all be shot and produced.
âWe already have 3.5 million subscribers on the CREAM platform and we expect more talented Nigerians to upload their scripts and music for possible assistance.
âLegbegbe, which is one of the most played songs in clubs, radio stations and parties, was a product of CREAM, this was done by Real self, along with Idowest, Obadice and Kelvin Chuksâ, a- he declared.
