I want to launch an explosive film in March in London. Also, I want to organize a big birthday bash for my daughter. Of course, I am also working on some films that will be released soon. Apart from this, I am planning to travel to other countries that I have not visited before.

First and foremost, I am concentrating on getting my party ticket that will enable me to contest for a seat in the House of Representatives under the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).

Hopefully, towards the end of the year, I will launch my book entitled Warrior lamentation.
