Nollytainment Creates NFT Collection for Nollywood Stars
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
To immortalise iconic figures in the Nigerian movie industry fondly called Nollywood, a US-based entertainment outfit, Nollytainment Incorporated, is creating an NFT Collection through Nollywood Superstars NFT Collection.
A statement from the organisation said three superstars in the industry have been pencilled down for this and they are Kate Henshaw, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD), and Odulade Adekola.
It was disclosed that the NFT Collection would be unveiled on Sunday, October 1, 2023, a day set aside to celebrate Nigeria’s independence.
On that day, 1,000 of these exquisite Nollywood super digital NFTs will be distributed for free to fans to be chosen at random from Nolly Club, a gesture of appreciation to the dedicated supporters who have stood by these superstars throughout their awe-inspiring careers.
To partake in this historic moment, fans are invited to join and preregister for the free drawings for the first 1,000 unique NFT giveaways on the Nolly Club discord server at www.Nolly.club, where all distributions and giveaways to the fans to be chosen at random will take place.
By securing their giveaway spots now, enthusiasts can ensure their place in the annals of Nollywood history.
Those who miss out on this special NFT Superstar collection for these icons will be able to go to the NFT secondary market at magicEden.com to trade or buy their unique piece of their Nollywood hero.
It was disclosed that only 10,000 exceptional collectors would have the privilege of owning these iconic pieces of cinematic history.
The number of NFTS to be minded for each of these three stars has been kept exceptionally small to create scarcity and future value in the hands of the ultimate holders.
Nollytainment stated that this monumental fan collectable release is the first in a series of collections to honour the thespians, marking the beginning of a grand journey to celebrate and immortalise other illustrious film stars.
The firm has promised to continue to pioneer innovation in the entertainment industry, assuring that future releases will offer fans the opportunity to celebrate and immortalise more Nollywood superstars, giving them a piece of their digital legacy as collectable NFTs.
