What is your advice for the young in the Nigerian Entertainment industry?
If you have a passion for something, you should go for it, if it’s singing, dancing, writing , acting, you should go for it. Make sure you study every aspect of it, do your research and continue with passion. The road gets very hard, but if you continue you will succeed. Hard work always has rewards.
Do you have anything set up to help upcoming talent?
I have a foundation through which I promote African Heritage, our culture, tradition, our ways. I promote young people, I work with young screen writers that have very good scripts and I am also going into directing my own films. This would create employment for young ones.
