Hon. Ogunkelu also hailed the dexterity of Mr. Linus Idahosa, the CEO of Del-York Group, who envisioned the project in partnership with LASG and others as an opportunity to boost the creative economy, export talent and content, and attract international production houses.
“The development of the Film City, according to Mr. Idahosa, is estimated to cost $120 million for the first phase, with a total of $400 million for subsequent phases. He will be collaborating with experienced partners like Storyline Studios and Harry in Europe, which he considers vital. This is indeed monumental and heartwarming, considering the huge investment it will gulp,” he retorted.
Hon. Sylvester Ogunkelu’s enthusiastic support for the Lagos Film City project underscores the immense promise this endeavor holds for Epe and Lagos State. As the project takes shape, it represents a significant stride toward nurturing the creative industry, fostering economic growth, and placing the division on the global map.
