I commend all of us for all we’ve achieved so far.
We must never forget this; no matter how much we copy oyibo, we no be oyibo, we can never do their thing better than them.
The only thing we can do better than them is our own thing.
Let’s tell more Nigerian stories.
Let’s show more of our culture & tradition in our stories.
Oyibo ways are not better than ours.
They have sold theirs.
Let’s sell ours.
