After several criticism about the Nollywood industry especially about sound effects and make-ups, the movers of the make believe world are actually putting their hands on deck to make an improvement in the industry as soon as possible.

To many analysts, it is believed that once some of the key parts of the make-believe world are rebranded with creative minds, the industry will be able to stand shoulder-shoulder with the Hollywood counterparts.

Recently, multiple award winning make-up artiste, Hakeem 'Effect' Onilogbo, has helped put Nigeria as one of the world's most creative country with the creation of the first 'Naked fat suit' in Africa.

He created this in a new movie directed by Ernest Obi which stars the likes of Olu Jacobs, Pet Edochie, Ijele Ejiofor and others.

Movie watchers will quickly recall that it is the costume that Hollywood star, Eddie Murphy used in Naughty Professor, and Martin Laurence also acted with it in Big Mama.
