“There were challenges, I mean operating in America where you have to work in Dollars. So, you look at the exchange rate, it was killing. It was so bad at some point I thought we wouldn’t finish the project.

“But we got lucky knowing fully well that as a theater artist, I always believe that no matter what happens, the show must go on and the show went on and then we came out with result.”

AY also expressed his plans in supporting upcoming actors in Nollywood by giving them a platform where they can express and show their talent to the world.

“I am doing that already and the only way to do it is to use the same platform to introduce new people into the industry which is what we are doing.”
