Over the past years, I have been bashed, gotten lots of criticism and yes lots of praises too and for this, I am happy to tell you guys that I have taken it all in, and I am fully back as filmmaker. When I say I am back, I mean fully and I am not going to leave any stone unturned. I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to my cast and crew, to everybody who came out to support me.
To all my fans rooting for me, without you there will be no me. You all are truly my Titans. To God for the wisdom and strength to navigate this journey as a mum and a wife. I’m eternally grateful. This is just the beginning. Lastly, IJAKUMO (The born-again stripper) in Cinemas from the 23rd of December… December is gonna be littttttttt”.
