See excerpts of his lecture
“We are the giant of Africa so we have to tell the whole world who we are.
Your presence here today is not a joke, but it is for you to make something out of the things you have been taught. As an actor, you have to leave who you are on set and interpret the role given to you very well. When given opportunities, you should always make the best of them.”
“We are the giant of Africa not by words, but by our level of creativity. For the script writers, you must know your community before you write and make sure you conduct your research before you write anything.”
