"All the sleepless nights, headaches, injuries, disappointments, tiredness, fatigue, stress and all the hassles that come with producing and bringing to life your content will all be worth it if first of all it brings smiles to the faces of the viewers , teaches morals and we get returns on effort and money spent.
"It is so sad to know that people sit within the confines of their homes and "places of work" with no time at all, ship out someone else's time, money and sweat! THEY PRACTICALLY TAKE THE JOY AWAY!!!
This is so painful and as a producer and content provider , I feel what@funkejenifaakindele is going through now.
