POPULAR filmmaker and the chief executive officer of O.J. Productions, Ojiofor Ezeanaeche, has finally opened the doors of his recently completed hotel for business in the coal city of Enugu.

Located on 1st Avenue, off Bisalla Road, Independence Layout, the wondrous known as Dmatel Hotels and Resort.

Dmatel boasts of luxurious and spacious rooms, exquisite bar, halls and conference rooms alongside an Olympic sized swimming pool.

At the grand opening recently, which also had in attendance several Nollywood stars, elated O.J. said the need to help boost the Nigerian hospitality industry necessitated his investing hugely in Dmatel.

"It has been on my mind for long to invest in the hospitality business, but I finally embarked on this project two years ago and now the whole thing is a reality. Individuals, corporate bodies and even government agencies will find Dmatel very attractive and okay for their corporate and social events whenever the need arises. It will also serve as haven for tourists coming into Enugu to relax and explore the city's potentials."

Continuing, the award winning movie producer said Nollywood stars looking for where to relax or lodge, either on or off locations should give Dmatel a trial. "And they would immediately get hooked. Here we don't compromise our clients' comfort, they are given five star treatments by our well trained staff."

Nollywood star, Ramsey Noah, who flew into Enugu for the grand opening said "Dmatel Hotels and Resort is a testimony of O.J's hardwork, resilience and doggedness. For us in Nollywood, it is a plus and we are very proud of him, this is no doubt historic."

Also speaking at the opening, Patience Ozokwo, another Nollywood star says: "This is a big plus for us in Enugu. And we are very proud and elated with O.J. for giving us this magnificent hotel in Enugu."

The filmmaker stated that showbiz and the hospitality business are closely related and would therefore implore government to support and encourage both sectors, especially in the areas of tax concessions, so that they would be encouraged to build more hotels within the country.
