"It is not easy writing a comedy script but each time I want to put it to rest, people tell me that the last season was lovely and they keep asking what would be happening in seasons to come."

"They still want to see more because everyone loves  Jenifa. I believe that  Jenifa  is a brand that has come to stay because we use her as a vessel to pass  messages across to young people."

"I use the character to highlight some problems the youths face and also proffer solutions to these problems. I don’t  see Jenifa’s Dairy coming to an end,”
