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.

 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.

When Queen Elizabeth II died Thursday afternoon, the crown was immediately passed on to her eldest son and heir, Charles, as part of the United Kingdom’s constitutional monarchy system.

 

Charles is now king, Buckingham Palace said in a statement announcing Elizabeth’s death, though a coronation—traditionally held at Westminster Abbey—will be planned later to officially crown the new king (Charles’ wife, Camilla, is now the queen consort, according to the palace).
