THe Benue Association of Movie Producers (AMP) and Actors Guide of Nigeria (AGN) have disassociated themselves from two pornographic movies recently shot in Makurdi.

Two sexually explicit movie productions, IPhone 7 Babes and Feast of Death, were shot in locations within Makurdi in December 2016 by film producer, Derrick Walter of Nollyniz Gate Productions.

But the associations on Saturday in Makurdi, condemned the content of the movie productions and said the actors that featured in them were not their members.

A statement jointly signed by the chairman and vice chairman of the AMP and AGN, Rose Okwoli and Benjamin Ukwueze, respectively, described the productions as “archaic, barbaric, uncivilized, illegal and against acceptable moral and cultural norms which they are out to project”.

“They are not registered members of the bodies and the producer did not seek approval from AMP/AGN as is the usual practice for the production of the movies under reference.

“The associations strongly condemn the entire project; the abuse of professionalism exhibited by the producer, Mr Derrick Walter, owner of Nollyniz Gate Productions.

“We also condemn the desperation and profanity showcased by the so called artists in a bid to gain fame and popularity in the movie industry and the abuse of dignity and decency.

“The artists involved are not our registered members; the said producer did not seek the approval of AMP/AGN, none of the bodies gave approval for the production of such movies.
