In 2003,the film “blood sisters”was produced. If that is taken for instance, the costume, graphics and production of the movie cannot be compared to a recent movie like “bling lagosians” even in structure and style of screen writing, they are different. If all these are observed even from a distance, it is clear that they are alot of differences in-between. The transfiguration from then to now, with these features, are termed development.

In as much as the entertainment industry has suffered alot of back slides and still have some issues that have been left unaddressed, presently, it is striving to inform and entertain the public in its best and possible way. Some people see entertainment functions as “immoral” but one truth is that most people like what is done there. In recent times, entertainment now applies to our everyday life.
