Here is the secret to the success of Banana Island Ghost
“Frankly, Thirty-Five million naira is humbling. To see so many people respond well to something you created is satisfying. I know how hard my cast and crew worked to achieve the quality we did, and I think that is what Nigerians are reacting to. Picture quality, visual effects, and great comedy, all tied up in a Nigerian story made 100% by Nigerians.”
Part of the success of the film seems to come from its innovative use of social media and strong word of mouth. - -writer/Director BB Sasore
