I began producing in 2011 having worked with big names like Emeka Smith, Shakara, Elenu, Seyi Law, Ajebo, Efewarriboy etc.
I believe in hard work and smart work, I have successfully carved a niche for myself in the comedy industry by actively positioning myself for opportunities. Producing for me comes naturally due to my unconventional way of bringing dreams, vision & pictures to reality.
I have successfully produced quite a number of comedy shows under Seagrin Media which I am a co-founder. With the outbreak and evolution of Nollywood, I decided to learn the arts of making a fantastic and blockbuster movie.
I co-produced "Samaritan" in the Academy which will soon be released on YouTube.
