Speaking with from London recently, Femi, who has produced films like Odun Mbaku, Alapatira, Elepo Roobi and Eye N'korin among others said his mission in London is to acquire more skills in film making and marketing.

“I've been going through intensive training here to upgrade my skills. Technically, the Nigerian movie industry is still lagging behind, but my aim is to raise the bar when I come back.
