Del-York Group, in collaboration with the Lagos State Government, has officially launched the ‘Kebulania Lagos Film City’ project in Epe, with an estimated cost of $100 million.

The unveiling of this state-of-the-art film city, situated in Ejirin, a community within the Epe Local Government Area, was presided over by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The project’s primary goal is to reshape the African film and entertainment industry, fostering innovation, talent discovery, and storytelling excellence.

Governor Sanwo-Olu emphasized the project’s significance in his welcome address, stating, “Today, we embark on a journey that will redefine the landscape of the film industry in Lagos State.

As we break the ground for this $100 million film city, covering an expansive 100-hectare land area and executed as a Public-Private Partnership, we are laying the foundation for a creative hub that will catalyze innovation, talent discovery, and storytelling excellence.”

Linus Idahosa, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Del-York Group, spoke passionately about the transformative potential of the newly unveiled film city project.

Conceived three years ago, this venture is more than just a catalyst for creative mastery; it also promises economic vibrancy and job creation.

Idahosa expressed optimism about the collaboration between Lagos Film City and the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, anticipating significant economic impact, including an influx of international visitors and a boost to the local economy, primarily through the tourism sector.
