He said: "I have always wanted to do something bigger. I kept searching for funds to realise this dream.

"Sometimes I feel funds are getting to the wrong hands who have positioned themselves as the leaders in the industry. I still feel so. I told myself however that that should not be a barrier. So I met this young man called Joseph Jaiyeoba, who is also passionate about making movies, making a positive impact. We, together have committed all we have into this, hoping that one day we'll get the required funding. So we made 'Made In Nigeria' This movie was shot in Chicago and Lagos. My friends I need you to wait for this. Starring Joseph Jaiyeoba, Toyin Aimakhu, Joseph Benjamin, Frank Edoho, Adebantu, Uti Nwachukwu, Chyle Ona."
