The Nigerian movie industry has been plagued with different issues of actors been short-changed for their hard work and perseverance as well as the problems of distribution of their works.

For one of Nigeria's foremost cinematographers and producers, Tunde Kelani, the problem of distribution of creative materials for the screen will be solved as he is venturing into the digital world to provide a platform for African contents.

"Distributing films or other contents physically are becoming increasingly difficult, revenues are lost on a daily basis and content owners are at the mercy of the menacing activities of pirates.

"I think it is just natural, expedient and sensible to take contents closer to the consumers on demand and in terms that suit all the parties involved," he said in a recent interview.

He is the CEO of Mainframe productions which has produced movies such as 'T'Oluwa Nile', 'Campus Queen', 'Agogo Ewo', 'Oleku' and 'Maami'.
