The Kwara State University (KWASU) was a meeting point for film students, film makers, movie directors and enthusiasts in the past week.

Niran Adedokun, the sole author of ‘Ladies Calling The Shots’, a book which articulates the creative efforts of selected female directors in Nigeria’s movie industry, held an interactive session with students of the institution.

To mark its first edition of “Nollywood’s Town Meet Gown”, Elizabeth Olayiwola, co-ordinator, Center for Nollywood and New Media in Africa (CiNNeMA), KWASU, teamed up with the author to have three of the directors discussed in the book engage with the film students.

The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. AbdulRasheed Na’Allah was also present at the interactive session.

The VC expressed his satisfaction at seeing the author of the book alongside three of the seventeen directors highlighted in the literary effort.

The first screened movie at the event was “Kasala”. The movie screening sessions were moderated by Joe Odedina who introduced the audience to the 90-minute movie titled, “Kasala” and which was directed and produced by Ema Edosio.
The movie has been screened at several international film festivals across the globe despite its rejection by some cinemas in Nigeria.


The movie tells the story of the resilience of four young men from a less-privileged community who are bound by their ambition in music as a career.
