Indeed, the beginning of a new year provides opportunity for a fresh start, and to correct the mistakes of the past. Globally, as the year winds down, people reflect on the past, set new targets and plan for the 12 months ahead. As 2017 unfolds, Nollywood is not left out. Earlier in the week, Inside Nollywood went to town and spoke to movie stars. Today, we reveal to you what is on the front burner for these celebs in the New Year.
I want to release myself to the magic of friendship –Joseph Okechukwu
I am a lone ranger. I don’t have friends. However, this year I want to open myself up to the magic of friendship and responsibly too. I am going to visit new countries, especially in Africa. I love Africa to bits. 2017 pretty much is the year I plan to take my career to the next level, explore entirely new horizons and biting just more than I can chew. I believe it is going to be a very adventurous year indeed.
I want to raise the bar –Princess Chineke
2016 was a good year. I achieved some goals but the recession got in the way. However, it was certainly above average. Mistakes were inevitable and lessons were learnt and so 2016 was a warm up and 2017 will be the game changer. I will discard the unproductive trees and raise the bar. I will also acknowledge the supremacy of God more than I did last year. I also want to be more proactive,and productive. Like Thomas Jefferson said ‘A candle looses nothing when it lights up another candle.’ I want to learn more, increase my multiple streams of income. and like Hector Lamarque said ‘most people make good choices everyday but don’t make enough good choices to create momentum and obtain success’ so for me it is a year of more than enough input.

Na God hand I de-o –Yul Edochie
