“I guess I haven’t found the right script yet. Creativity and depth are the qualities that I look out for in a script.

So said, I am constantly watching out for the kind of stories I take part in.

“I am in support of movies that show a great deal of professionalism and creativity. Having practised my art in international and professionally produced stories like ‘Ije’; ‘Mirror boy;’ and ‘Tango with me’, I don’t think I can return to the blandness and mediocrity that characterized Nollywood in the past.
