By Sewe Ishola,
Filmmaker, Kemi Adetiba has revealed she has her sights set on winning an Oscar award in the next two to five years.
She made this revelation, while speaking with CNN’s African Voices, where she also spoke about her career, her next moves and why the series “King Women” is so important to her.
Explaining why she originally moved behind the camera, Kemi Adetiba tells CNN: “I was questioning my longevity in front of the camera… I’d also find it intriguing when I would go off for shoots with the cameramen… I said: ‘Instead of just wasting a couple of years, how about I learn a new craft while I’m doing that? What is the thing that I want to learn now? What is the thing that will take my career to the next level? – being a director.’”
