A popular Nigerian comedian, AY Makun has told his story as a filmmaker and the challenges he faced during his early days.
 
Ayodele Richard Makun, A popular Nigerian comedian better known as AY, has told his story as a filmmaker and the challenges he faced during his early days. He has nothing to prove to anyone again.
 
After conquering the stage as a stand-up comedy, AY brought his art to Nollywood to strengthen the industry.
 
Today, not only has he raised the bar in filmmaking in Nigeria, but he has also written his golden name as the producer of the most profitable film ever recorded in West Africa, “30 Days in Atlanta “. Which he published in 2014.
 
He has since produced other innovative films that are also making waves in the international film market.
 
A multi-talented actor turned, who studied theater arts at Delta State University in Abraka, took the time to tell his successful story as a filmmaker. He spoke at the Creative Nigeria Summit held on Monday in Lagos.
 
Sharing his story in front of a large audience of bank executives, industry captains, film professionals and corporations, the Delta State born has relived the beginning of his career in film production. .
 
According to him, it all started with the comedy sketches he uploaded on his You-tube channel, which was the most watched channel in Nigeria at the time.
 
“I want to believe that some of the successes we’ve had in the industry, I have the privilege of being one of those people,” he began.
 
“I must say, he continued” that I started filmmaking. I used the word buffered because in Nigeria, when you know that you do a job, when you sail or you tend to do something else, it’s always difficult for people to accept it. “
 
“During that time, I studied theater arts and my directorial training. Many people do not know this part of me.
 
So, why do I do something different? It started with comic skits that I used to download online. I always do the sketches. I put the sketches on You-tube. At one point, your YouTube channel has become the most watched television channel in Nigeria. So, one day, I had a conversation with my wife and she suggested that I do not produce a feature film instead of comic sketches, that brings me to the success story of ’30 Days in Atlanta ‘. When I wanted to produce ’30 Days in Atlanta, many people thought I was going crazy. ‘
 
AY revealed that the film cost him about $ 150,000, which is about 23 million nairas.
 
“By investing 23 million nairas in the film, the film eventually generated a net profit of 163 million naira, or about $ 1.1 million. However, about 50 million naira, or should I say about $ 330, had to be reintroduced into production. The film has been sold to about eight airlines and five online platforms, including Netflix, in 2017. “
 
“We are very excited about Netflix today, but I’m telling you that” 30 days in Atlanta “was also one of the first films to be shot here on this platform in 2017. I also won $ 100,000 extra, and I’m still making more money so far.
 
“In addition to ’30 Days in Atlanta ‘, I shot two more movies. After the success story of ’30 Days in Atlanta ‘, we created another one,’ A trip to Jamaica ‘. I invested about 60 million nairas and the film brought in around 188 million euros at the box office, of which about 40 million were left. . When I went to SunCity for 10 days, I was contacted in South Africa. The country, Tourism, participated in the 10 days of SunCity and the film proved to be a major showcase for one of the products. It was big. “
 
“Moving from this level, I was sitting in the comfort of my home the other day when I received a call informing me that some people were coming to see me from China. What I’m trying to say is that I never run at a loss in terms of film production. The brand has become very strong as international partners like Netflix and a Chinese media company, Huawei, look forward to working with me to make the 30 days in China. “
 
“It will be a sequel to” 30 Days in Atlanta, “which eventually got into the Guinness Book of World Records as the most profitable film in that part of the world at the same time.  “Merriment.” Last week, we put the film on Netflix in the United States and it was one of the most popular movies on this platform.
 
The facts are known and it is an advantage for us. You know, when the music is good, you play it twice. We produce “Merriment 2” which, I think, by December, will be one of the biggest films in Nigeria. “
