In an exclusive interview, the actor spoke on receiving the script from the director, Stanlee Ohikhaure, preparing for the scene, and the reaction of the cast and crew on set

Iyoho stated that he was excited about doing something new, something that has never been done in the Nigerian film industry.

He also attributed his confidence to the special effects artist, whom he has a lot of respect for.

Speaking about reactions, he said, "probably apart from me and the special effect makeup artist, who had already run tests and knew how safe it was, I guess every other person was already kind of sceptical, a little bit on the edge."

He also revealed that he had a code while filming. "I had a code I was gonna give them when I thought it was too much. When I thought OK, it's time for them to put it out from me."
