DVD piracy plagues 'Nollywood'

Nigeria's fast-growing film industry jeopardised by surge in illegal DVD piracy.

    Nigeria is home to the world's fastest growing film industry.

    It churns out more than 2,000 films every year and employs hundreds of thousands of Nigerians.

    But 'Nollywood' is being plagued by the growing problem of DVD piracy.

    Within 48 hours of a film's release, an illegal copy can often be found on the street.
