ONN Question: What movie/shows are you currently working on?

Response: Am working on two projects at the moment.  A feature film which is at the production stage and a Tv show which is at the pre-production level.

ONN Question: What skills are necessary for a person in your position?

Response: Well, creativity is key in Art. I will like to break it down further for the different jobs that I do: Acting requires memorizing skills, ability to communicate with a wide range of people and physical stability. For screenwriting, one must have both reading and excellent writing skills. While a film producer must have a clear vision, presentation and negotiation skills, plus leadership and management ability.

ONN Question: What was your first job in Nollywood/Entertainment?

Response:  I will answer that in four parts- On stage, my first major role was playing Adetutu in EFUNSETAN ANIWURA. The first Yoruba film I featured in is SUGBON KAN, while the English film I first appeared in is EDGES OF LOVE. Then the first film I wrote and produced is TALODARAN (WHO IS THE CRIMINAL)

ONN Question: How would you describe the experience?

Response:  Simply awesome

ONN Question: What is your profession’s greatest challenge today?

Response: Finance! I mean inadequate capital.

ONN Question:  If you could change just one thing about the industry with the wave of a magic wand, what would it be?

Response: Wow! That would be to make plagiarism and piracy of our works impossible (laughs)

ONN Question: What advice would you give to someone who wants to do what you do?

Response: Many will tell you, you can’t do it. Therefore you must have a clear vision and be resolute in your pursuance of it, because it is your life; you need to make most of the journey by yourself.
