MTF Academy receives book donations
MultiChoice Nigeria’s recently launched talent-search initiative, the MTF Academy, has received a number of book donations for its library.
Those who have donated include Emeka Mba, former director general of the National Broadcasting Commission, who provided 300 books; and movie producer Lilian Amah, who gave 10 copies of her most recently published book.
Meanwhile, professor Abraham Linus, former dean of Ghana’s National Film & Television Institute, donated two copies of his book on visual literacy, while the Committee for the Relevant Arts has provided 100 books.
The wide range of books includes autobiographies, novels, biographies and topics such as the arts. The donations are an attempt to ensure a reading culture among students at the MTF Academy.
Mba said: “MultiChoice, through the MTF project, has rewritten the narrative of the creative industry by investing in the students of the MultiChoice Talent Factory Academy.
“Sharing ideas and knowledge is key, and knowledge is the only thing that you share and it grows. You cannot be a good lawyer if you don’t read cases. So, if you want to be a good filmmaker with impactful stories to tell, you have to read.”
