The award-winning filmmaker told Planet TV in an interview published on November 14, 2016 on Instagram: “Recession has got nothing on the movie, trust me.”
“As a matter of fact, I think it’s God, I always tell people that I’m a product of grace, I don’t act like I’m the best, I don’t come out like I produce the very best of movies but somehow I just experience grace which is also interwoven with solid hard work.
He told the TV platform that the movie was just what Nigerians needed to provide relief and ease the stress of their daily lives.
“And all I can say is “A Trip To Jamaica” is doing awesomely well and of course with the recession going on, it's just what we need in Nigeria to just ease off.”
