I had the opportunity of travelling abroad frequently, so I get stuff which I sell here in Nigeria. I have people award series of contracts to me, and jobs to do for them.
Through these means, I was able to raise the funds to shoot those movies. I have always been frugal with my spending and do a lot of savings from my proceeds. With the kind of money I made, some might want to buy a car with their money, and some, for other purposes. For me, the little money I had then, I decided to use to make my own movie.”
