Yes, the last time we spoke with Nollywood Director/Producer Decent Promise he told us that he was preparing for a new movie.
Listed below are the transcribed version of Mr Decent Promise interview chat with us.
- YES SIR, SO CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT IT?.
Absolutely, we are already making a new movie that is centred around the youth. The movie is a music dance campus movie with over 200 cast starring the lives of Sam Dede, Moyo Lawal, Chydon Charles, Browny and lot more. I am sure Nigerians will be happy to experience something different from the usual thing they are used to in our Nigerian movies. We want to do something that is unique.
- SIR YOU MADE MENTION OF USING 200 CAST FOR THE MOVIE, HOW DO YOU INTEND TO GET THEM?*
It’s simple. Through auditioning. We have already placed advert on radio and social media advertising this opportunity. I see it as an opportunity because lot of people have been dreaming of this opportunity yet they have not seen any. So we are coming up with this, its completely amazing.
The most amazing part for me is the fact that we are not just using them for this movie alone. Subsequent movies they are all going to be part of.
- IS THERE ANY FORM OF PAYMENT ON THE PART OF THE ARTISTES?*
Yes. Stardom is a whole of scarifies.
- NO SIR WHAT I MEAN IS FINANCIAL INVOLVEMENT.
Same thing. However Star Zone Africa does not ask artistes to pay. What we do is what is done everywhere. We try to maintain global practices which is any one aspiring to work with us must register with us. And after few movies with us, we start paying you for any job you done.
- DID YOU SAY IT IS A GLOBAL PRACTICE?
Yes it is. In Hollywood for example, we have agents that supply actors to producers. Those agents conduct auditions for the artistes and certify them before giving them out to the producers. And you must register with those agencies. But in Nigeria we don’t have such agencies so we bridge the gap.
- WOULD YOU WANT TO SHARE SOME OF THE NAMES OF THE ARTISTES YOU HAVE SIGNED UNDER YOUR COMPANY?
Yes but the list is too long. So we have a special list for that. But I will just mention few here.

- ABOUT THE MOVIE SIR, WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE READY FOR PREMIERE?*
We are looking forward to Feb. 14th. But before then we will release trailers and teasers to keep people expectant.
SIR DO YOU STILL HAVE OPENING FOR INTERESTED PERSONS?
There will always be opening but what has changed is the fee for our registration. We reduced the amount to accommodate people and now that we have gotten the people, we have to raise the bar.
- OK SIR, WOULD YOU WANT TO DROP YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA HANDLES AND CONTACT?
