Last Saturday in Beverly Hills, California, Senator-elect and Silverbird Group Chairman, Ben Murray-Bruce was honored by the Nollywood Producers Guild of America with an Honorary Lifetime Membership of the Guild as a recognition of his support and contribution to the growth of the Nollywood film Industry and African Cinema as a whole. Mr. Murray-Bruce was in the United States to attend his son, Jared’s graduation, who just bagged a B.A. in Communications from Loyola Marymount University.

The proud father threw a pool party for his son at his Beverly Hills mansion with close friends and family members. It was there that the Publicity Secretary of Nollywood Producers Guild of America, filmmaker Pascal Atuma and another member and popular filmmaker, Jeta Amata presented him with the award on behalf of the Guild’s President, Mr. Oliver Mbamara Esq. and the entire members of the guild.  The President of the guild, Mr. Oliver Mbamara in a video message congratulated the Senator-elect for his immense support of the Nigerian Film Industry and urged him to continue in this stride.

Mr. Pascal Atuma in presenting the award said, “My Honorable boss, your senate seat is for the representation of two groups, the Bayelsa people that elected you and the entire Nollywood Film Industry.  So please always carry this on your shoulder.  You are now our supreme voice with a direct, God given connection to the new administration.  We already know that you will represent us very well.”
Jeta Amata added, “It is a blessing for the entire Nollywood Industry that we are now represented at the senate level.  We have one of our own in-house and in the policy making department.  There couldn’t be a better time and season for Nollywood than this.  I recently mentioned to the Honorable Senator about the problem of piracy with one of my movies and he said, ‘Come and see me when I am in office and I will see what I can do about this piracy problem.’  I cannot tell you how hopeful I am that we have someone in government who is willing to look into this matter.  Thank you so much.”
The new Senator with his beautiful wife, Mrs. Evelyn, thanked the guild members for the honor and promised to do everything possible, within reason, to make sure that Nollywood and Nigeria as a whole benefits from his involvement in government.  He went on to congratulate his son Jared by saying,
“As you can see, my son Jared just made me a very proud father and I am very, very happy and proud of you son.”
