Nollywood Film Festival Germany visits, presents projects to ambassador Falomo in Frankfurt
As it is in Ehizoya Golden Entertainment e.V culture, the team presented this year NFFG & NEGA awards projects to the new Consul General at the consulate of the Fed Reb of Nigeria in Frankfurt, Germany during a courtesy call to His Excellency CG Mr. D. O Falowo
Briefing His Excellency about the upcoming Nollywood – NFFG and NEGA events in general, which is meant purely to promote Nigeria image and integration values in particular in this part of the world via Nollywood movies he produces in Germany, the president of Ehizoya golden entertainment Mr. Isaac Izoya – Cultural Ambassador, appealed to His Excellency CG Mr. D. O Falowo to continue supporting the Nollywood projects by fully participating both in the planning process and the execution of the events programme. He urged His Excellency to endeavour in attending both the movies screening and to personally extend invitations to other diplomatic corps to also attend both the screening and the NEGA gala-night like his predecessors, which will go down a long way in lifting the image of Nigeria to a greater height in Germany.
The financial burden of this project is enormous Mr Izoya, the event director reiterate and we will appreciate if His Excellency could use his good office to relieve us that burden by assisting us financially – directly or indirectly for the continuity of this viable project, he requested.
This year gala-night is special because we are expecting several diplomatic corps VIPs from Abuja, Ghana, UK and USA and His Excellency involvement to make these guests feel at home cannot be over emphasized.
Mr Izoya requested the Consul General to particularly help him thanks members of his team that came with him whom are Engr Iyamu – The president of Nigeria Community in Hessen state, Ms Heidi Ivangs-Kariuki our reliable translator and Mr. Edward Jokolo our well officer and to others that are not here today due to tight schedules. Without them, the success so far would’ve been mission impossible. He concluded.
In response, his Excellency consul General D. O Falowo said “I can’t wait to witness the events” because I heard so much about it when I was still in my last POST in America before coming to Germany. I was aware when Her Excellency Senator Danzilla James from Atlanta Georgia and Queen Blessing Itua came to receive their awards respectively some years back. They came back then singing praises of the event generally. You could then imagine how I felt when I was posted down to Frankfurt. We are here to support viable projects of this magnitude which is very good for our country image. Nigerians are making waves in different fields of human endeavours but we lack powerful media platforms like CNN and BBC broadcasting outlets to blow our trumpets which is one of the advantages the West have over us. Thank God to Nollywood which is also serving as our local voice to portray the good image of our country and thanks to Ehizoya Golden Entertainment e.V for these your noble projects via Nollywood telling our original stories in this part of the world.
It’s our duty to support such project and we’ll support you morally but sadly, not with finance because we are financially handicapped.
Kindly keep us posted regularly and we’ll surely be there for your organization in our little capacity. It’s a promise, he added.
Thank God you’re here with some of your formidable team members like Engr Iyamu whom I want to particularly beg to help me organize a meeting within me and the Edo people in this city. I love to meet with them to exchange ideas affecting the image of our beloved country especially, to discuss a hot subject, human trafficking. We must fight to stamp it out collectively. Meeting with Edo community is my top priority, he emphasized.
“I am the president of Nigeria community not Edo community. I don’t represent a section of Nigeria because I believe in one Nigeria though I am a typical Edo man. Nevertheless, I promise to help arrange a meeting as requested”, Engr Iyamu concluded.
