On producing "Daddy's Girls";

"Well, producing "Daddy's Girls" wasn't such a challenge, because we had produced "Dear Mother," similar TV series for close to 12 years. The concept was from Yink Ogun. He gave us the concept and then we put it to use. Yinka Ogun was the creator of "Daddy's Girls."

On AMVCA win;

"Winning the award was a beautiful thing. I was looking forward to winning it, because we've done a lot of work, and we finally won it. It's a big challenge for me, because I know that with award comes more hard work.

On TV series being more popular;

"There are still very popular, even more popular than they were in the past. Now we have a lot of people who appreciate good work, chunking out beautiful work everyday. With Africa Magic coming up, with the new series they are doing, it has challenged a lot of us to come out with more jobs stay in the market, and a lot of people are watching."

It hasn't really affect us much. A lot of people still  tune to TVs to watch programmes because of  the cost of being on the internet.  When I started in 1999, they were quite a few programmes on TV, and then we were making more money because they were very few people for advertisers to patronize.
