If I was not in entertainment, I would've loved to be a Secret Agent (FBI).
What do you think about the high rate of p0rn0graphy and n*dity that has swept into nollywood?
I strongly detest p0rn0graphy and n*dity in our movies, our movie is supposed to be for the family entertainment, but you can't be free to watch with your family because you can't tell what is going to happen next. I believe we should still acknowledge that we are Africans and not the western.
Message to your fans and youths out there?
My Message to my fans and youth: You can be who and whatever you wanna be if you believe in God and in yourself, don't let anybody tell you, you can't do it. Get rid of negative people around you, and you will see yourself at the top. Thank you for all your love and support, I know you may not have been seeing my movies like before, but I promise you to look out for them from now because I have shot over 8 good movies lately that will get on your screen soon, and more project are on the way.
