PHcity stand up! One of our own has made the city proud in the national level.
Although i know Port Harcourt is endowed with great people, creative men and women but i must confess i never saw this one coming; i never knew there exists an awesome Screenwriter in the city. Abosi Ogba today proved me wrong as he emerged victorious in the SCRIPT WRITING competition organized by Niyi Akinmolayan.
With over 115 scripts submitted to Niyi Akinmolayan, Abosi Ogba’s script titled ROOM 315 made it to the final 3 and of course emerged winner in the end (According to a press release on the 14th of August 2016).
Niyi Akinmolayan‘s words after the whole thing were:
“So Abosi Ogba won the 100k.
Next thing is to start casting for the film. Good news. The other two scripts Pastopreneur and The Salon will also be made after this one. Lots of producers are interested already. We will also get to screen in a cinema. Abosi gets to partake in the ScriptIt conference by Rita Onwurah free next week and all the other 19 writers get a discount. They also get to be at the filming of the movie.”
This to me is a stepping stone to Abosi’s script writing capability and in no time will pave way for future jobs. No doubt this is a perfect example of the popular saying “From PH to the World”
The heartfelt script which talks about FAMILY, WORK and LIFE generally can be found HERE
Congrats Abosi Ogba, Greater heights we wish you here on PHcityPromo.com
