How does it feel winning an AMVCA?
Still can’t explain but gratitude is my attitude right now.

Did you see this coming?
I tried to be hopeful but “liver go sha fail” at times. That category was the toughest. We bless God.
Thank you to all that voted and canvased for votes.

How did your family react when you won?
Mum called immediately. They still aren’t over it yet.

What will you be spending your prize money on?
Well, when it comes, tithe first.

Which do you prefer: TV series of feature films?
They both come with unique experiences. I love movies sha.
