So Abosi Ogba won the 100k.

Next thing is to start casting for the film. Good news. The other two scripts Pastopreneur and The Salon will also be made after this one. Lots of producers are interested already. We will also get to screen in a cinema. Abosi gets to partake in the ScriptIt conference by Rita Onwurah free next week and all the other 19 writers get a discount. They also get to be at the filming of the movie.

So people are you ready for whats to come?

Now lemme go and rest.
