“We were on set the whole afternoon and, though grueling, it was a great experience and tremendous fun! Many do not know just how hard actors work and the energy and discipline that goes into their craft.”

According to @FFK, “My friends, brothers, colleagues and fellow politicians Chief Dan Iwuanyawu and Senator Dino Melaye appear in the series as well, as does our respected and much-loved big brother Governor Chukwuemeka Ezeife, so I was not alone!
