Mr. Okoro said, the first film “LION OF AFRICA GOING TO AMERICA”, will engage about 200 artistes “because it’s an international project and some of us will be going outside Nigeria to conclude the project”.
Okoro stated that BOG Entertainment organized the audition in order to get the best actors and actresses not withstanding those who had acted previously.
He gave assurance of availability of all needed resources to deliver best movie production in line with international standard.
“BOG like I said will utilise good equipment so that we can achieve international standard.
”Like what we are seeing here already, everybody is involved, so all hands on deck”

One of the directors in BOG Entertainment who interacted Mr. Collins Aharanwa, assured of transparency in the selection of the best performing artistes among the participants at the audition.
On whether there will be transparency in the selection process he assured “by God’s grace we are going to be as transparent as possible, I mean as clean water, having brought Pete Edochie himself to be here, because with a veteran like him I don’t think there is going to be any such thing”, said Aharanwa.
A veteran Nollywood actor Chief Pete Edochie who was part of the judges described the turnout as impressive adding that he is part of the project because of the transparency demonstrated by the initiator.
Chief Edochie eulogized the pragmatic efforts of BOG Entertainment in uplifting the culture of Ndi IGBO through its film projects.
