Silverbird Distribution has reacted to a story published by an online publication about a movie, Silence, running at the cinemas presently.

According to Mr Ayotunde Bababunmi, Head of Production, Silverbird, “We wish to use this opportunity to tell film lovers to disregard the story as the movie is doing well across all our cinemas. Contrary to the insinuations and obvious cinematic illiteracy of the writer of the story, there are processes for pulling out movies and Silence has not had a single issue with us. The movie has never been shown to an empty hall neither has any movie buff that has seen it raised any eyebrows. We therefore wonder where the writer got his information from.”

Further, Bababunmi said, “It is absolutely difficult for a bad movie to pass all the processes that we subject movies to before they are put in the cinema. It is a thorough process and I am ashamed that someone can go to that level to lie. It is horrible when journalists try to pull Nollywood down with such falsehood. Silence is still running and feelers from all our screens across Nigeria is that the movie is doing well.”

Produced by talented actress, Iyabo Ojo, Silence stars Joseph Benjamin, Doris Simeon, Fathia Balogun and Priscilla (Iyabo’s daughter) among others. It was Directed by Alex Mouth and the movie won two awards; Best Kid Actress and Movie of the Year at the 2014 Best of Nollywood Awards held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
