‘I feel great because I have not been nominated for a long time.’
“Receiving this (award) in the presence of governors and top dignitries most especially His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi makes me want to shed tears because my major movies, ‘Modupetemi’ and ‘Eti Keta’ never won any Award in Nigeria though it did in abroad.
“I will forever be grateful to the Lord.”
