There are certain works that draw universal acclaim, with a combination of cinematography techniques, communication skills, and willingness to push limits with experimentation that make for a great leading movie director.


These attributes define Tosin Igho, a young man who has employed a unique blend of collaboration and leadership to make blockbusters.

 

 Igho is currently one of the leading movie directors in Nigeria’s movie industry. He’s at the top of his game and has been for over 10 years. Respect for the story drives his style in every film.

 

 The composition of his shots is visually stunning in every one of the films in a body of work that transcends genre, style, and theme. He remains at the top of any list of the best cinematographers.

 

Though he has nothing left to prove as a craftsman, Igho continues to up the game in Nollywood and beyond.

 

 Tosin took over from his father, Peter Igho, as an executive producer. He succeeded in the show business and now at about the same age, has a solid number of credits under his belt.

 

At the AMVCA Awards in 2020, Igho picked up an award for Best Picture Editor for his work ‘Seven’, which stars Efa Iwara, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Sadiq Daba, Patrick Diabuah, Daddy Showkey, and a few others. On the same day, his father also bagged the highly revered Industry Merit Award.

 

The duo made AMVCA history as the first father and son to win the AMVCAs on the same night.

 

Tosin Igho has a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Effects from the prestigious AFDA in Cape Town, South Africa. He would go on to bag another degree in Cinematography and Film Production. He is the chief executive officer of a popular film company, IGHO Films and managing director of Remote Pictures.

 

Some of Igho’s major television content includes ‘Once Upon A Time’, ‘The Eve’, ‘Seven’, ‘Judging Matters’ and ‘Love Come Back’. He is currently working on ‘Nneka The Pretty Serpent’, which is set to hit the cinema on December 18.

 

His technical adaptability from project-to-project and strong communication with directors define his work.

 

One of his most recent films, Seven, confirms that Tosin Igho is one of the best movie directors out of Nigeria and Africa by extension.

  He has also graced a variety of films with his bold, dark-chiseled signature.

GTBank suffers mass staff resignation

Published

on

 

The  IT division at GTBank has suffered a continual decrease in personnel within the last six months. It has caused a significant technical lacuna and work overload for current employees. Reports reaching 1st News have it that GTBank has been slow in promoting its staff; inadvertently triggering a wave of exits into the labour market which had attractive offers for their talent.

The shortage in manpower is bringing about increased workload; and mounting pressure on the remaining IT employees.

One staff said, “I was handling one application then it doubled as a result.”

Another one also: “There’s a particular team where three members left in the space of one month. Now, four people’s responsibilities are being juggled by one person.”

And yet another staff said, “The pressure is crazy. One person is doing three people’s jobs all in the name of efficiency. That’s why our cost to income ratio will always be the lowest in the industry.”

An undisclosed source said the frequent loss of experienced workers without commensurate hiring resulted in gaps in technical capabilities.

He said: “The application I am managing was handled by two people; but my partner has gone to join another team. If I’m leaving now, a new person can’t cram; and get a good grip of everything in my handover note within 3 weeks. We simply need more people on the team!”

This gap is often reflected when there is a service downtime towards the end of the month caused by server overload. During this period, transaction volume increases due to salary payments; and other month-end payments; leading to more pressure on existing resources.

Pyramids’ Road Trip Video to Aba Stadium, a Wake up Call, Says Egbe

Published

The Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle Group, Ebi Egbe, has called on the federal government to do something on the state of the roads in the country, declaring that the state of the Port-Harcourt Aba Road has become a bad advertisement for the country.

The poor state of the federal highway came to the fore over the weekend when Egyptian side, Pyramids Football Club who flew in the club’s private jet landed

at the Port Harcourt Airport and made a video of the horrible road trip to Aba and posted it on the social media, calling it a shame.

Pyramids held Enyimba 1-1 in Aba yesterday but qualified 5-2 aggregate for the semi final of the CAF Confederation Cup.

But Egbe whose outfit constructed the Enyimba Stadium turf noted that the Egyptians deliberately wanted to paint the country in bad light by showing the video to the world.

Egbe was however quick to add that government on its part also need to avoid the country being embarrassed by her international visitors by fixing our roads.

“That video by Pyramids is to me, a wake up call for us to not only fix our stadiums but also fix our roads.

“Teams that come to Aba to play have always commended the playing turf. We need to get it right on all fronts. This is why I am appealing to the federal government to get our roads fixed.

“Our teams would return to the continent next term and it would be a shame if teams from other countries that are far less endowed come in and mock us that we ve got no good roads in the country,” Egbe stressed

He further charged the various state governments to also upgrade their stadium facilities just like other countries are doing.
