“What the devil meant for bad, God has turned it around for my good! I can’t begin to tell you how much God has blessed me with OkaforsLaw! I am pleased to finally announce to you that by the grace of God, my movie OkaforsLaw will be flying the Nigerian flag at the 22nd Busan International Film Festival BIFF in far away South Korea
It’s the first Nigerian movie in the 22 years of this prestigious film festival. The bigger miracle is that I didn’t even submit my movie. Someone sent word about it to them; they wrote and requested a screening copy! So please my darlings, if you find yourself in that region, please go and support us by watching our movie screening on the 17th 10am, 18th 7:30pm, 20th 8pm.
May God bless us all and may our gifts bring us before great men.”
