Do not be fooled by the pretty pictures entertainers always post on here...

Behind closed doors, most have bills unsettled, bank loans unpaid and more bills to settle. 

In the film industry, Producers work very hard! We keep late nights, we sweat, we toil and have to bare the profit or loss of our wares.


Do not be fooled by some of the box office numbers you read about.

Only a handful take home 35 to 40 %. 

The DVD market is dead and there are not more than 3 buyers who pay more than 2.5m For an average Nigerian movie. Very few titles have truly made good return on investment. 

Most producers just GET BY. Films are supposed to last a lifetime. Producers are supposed to earn income throughout the lifespan of their films, but no! THIEVES won't let that happen. 

You are a thief when you buy, download or just watch a pirated copy of a film! 

You are a THIEF, a CRIMINAL, no better than an ARMED ROBBER because by your act, you STEAL and KILL.. 

Everytime you patronize or enrich PIRATES, YOU STEAL! Perhaps the term PIRACY or intellectual property THEFT is too fancy for some so i will explain further. 

That business that you do, that work place you go to everyday, that ware you sell. If at the end of the month you receive salary or payment for your Toil, and someone STEALS it from You, that is PIRACY! ? Or better yet, if an ARMED ROBBER puts a gun to your head and tells you to handover your salary because he feels you have made some money prior, that is PIRACY!!

Everytime you buy, download and watch pirated copies of anything! You put a gun to a producers head. 

You STEAL from us, you DESTROY our businesses and you KILL our opportunities.. #DEVILISH

This is not an appeal. This is just to enlighten some who don't know! Although ignorance is not an excuse. 

If you don't stop, your VERY GRAVE DUE will come to you. That open door you seek, that business opening you pray for, that blessing you wish for will be yours if only you will stop blocking the gateway of others by your constant STEALING and SHORT CHANGING of their blessings. 

FEAR GOD and do the right thing! please share#saynotopiracy #youareathief#liveandletlive #educateyourself
