1st Porn In NigeriaDec 29th, 2010 | By HGKing | Category: What's The Buzz?
GHANA â€” Even with all the controversy and condemnation by local government, the public and morality watchdogs, Nigeria’s first softcore porn movie, â€œDirty Secret,â€ is selling out fast to the public.
Based on some reports, the filmâ€™s wild popularity started after a trailer was released on the Internet. The short trailer was pulled off by YouTube for being too explicit.
The movie stars local talent Tonto Dikeh and Maryann Apollo and although described as being softcore, it includes a series of â€œabnormal sexual behaviorâ€ including incest, gay sex and â€œjaw-dropping sexual stunts.â€
â€œDirty Secretâ€ was produced and marketed by Nigeria-based Divine Touch Pictures although first reports said the producer was Sanga Entertainment in the U.K.
Retailers are taking in a heavy profit from the film because of a widespread marketing campaign that includes bus stop posters showing the two co-stars cuddling.
Musa Ismail, a store owner near the Ketu bus stop in Lagos said, â€œThe reason why the movie sells is because people like to watch all these movies that have to do with sex. Some people will even come here and pretend as if they want to go home to watch the movie so that they can criticize it but deep down in their hearts, they like it.â€
