According to lancelot oduwa, Barr ope banwo had issues with the total budget I requested for making the movie, He budgeted less than five million naira for the project as at the time we met, which to me, I think is too low for such a national project .As a veteran in the industry, I requested for 7 to 10 million naira which I think is not much to produce a movie, but is not ready to part ways with such a huge amount and I had no choice than to pullout and let go.
