Director Statement

I was inspired by Mali’s story and I chose to direct this film because of my personal experience of the African youth stereotype having traveled the world, funnily mostly in Africa were other African practically had a problem with a Nigerian young man just traveling all by himself to tell stories, Mali’s story in the cyber space just gave me that light in the darkness to use even though in a different sphere of live his story is connected to what I want viewers across the world to know about this story is there are money extraordinary thing being done by African youth and these should be priority to break us out of the dark continent fix.
We had a lot of financial challenges working on this project because there was no major funder except the independent executive producer. COVID19 did not make it any easy for the team and me with the hike in prices of things, restriction of movement and the general breakdown in supply chain of equipment and technical needs.
The first cut has received a lot of commendations and we are hoping that the final would have the impact we had planned and inspire Nigerians, Africans and the world perception about the story idea in this film.
