Lola Fani Kayode, writer of Mirror in the Sun, a Nigerian soap opera, and Amaka Igwe, late movie producer and director, were profiled in ‘Ladies Calling the Shots’, a book on female film directors in Nigeria.

The book, written by Niran Adedokun, a Lagos based lawyer and writer, will be launched on November 13 in Lagos, at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island, Lagos.

With over 290 pages, the book is premised on the relatively obscure nature of the directors’ role in the filmmaking process and the need to celebrate the women who are making Nigeria proud on this front.

The event will be chaired by Olusegun Osoba, former governor of Ogun state.

Femi Jacobs, an actor, will host the public presentation, which is scheduled to take off at 12pm, while the book will be reviewed byToni Kan, a writer.

Akinwunmi Ambode, Lagos state governor, Toyin Saraki, wife of Senate President Bukola Ssaraki, and Hadiza Bala Usman, managing director of The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), are also expected to be at the event.
