There are certain  genre of films that I pay attention  to as an individual. Coming out to do my own production, obviously, it had to reflect who I was, and my interest.

There’s that and the fact that I wanted the movie to be a Nigerian film. It was for the people, by the people. Everyone who worked on the production, were Nigerians," actress added.
