I am a practicing filmmaker and journalist of over 20 years. On May 18, 2013 in Cannes, France, I made history when I was elected as a Vice President of the International Federation of Film Producers Association (FIAPF), thus becoming the first ever African to occupy that office in FIAPF (www,fiapf.org). I was reelected in 2015 for a second tenure in office. I am also the first Nigerian filmmaker to participate in the LATC U.S.A Film Industry Program in Los Angeles. I have produced, directed, written and or acted in films and stage plays like Oma tsen-tsen, Nanna of the Niger Delta, Suara La, Olu Akengbuwa, Beyonnd Obligation, Ogodobiri, Judgment Day, Second Coming, Scruples, A Queen for Domingo, Back to Africa etc. I am well traveled, where I have participated in various film festivals, master classes, seminars and workshops as delegate or guest speaker in places like USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Canada, Argentina, India, South Africa, Uganda and Morocco among others.
