    How did I miss this! Oh my God!.. I really feel like crying but I believe Mr. Niyi would organise another one soon. I have some questions I would love to ask Mr. Niyi.. Pls sir, I am a big fan and I find encouragement in your inspiring words. You are my mentor and a great example to youths out there. You have had a great impact on youths trying to make their way into the Nigeria film industry. Kudos sir! I am a graduate of FUTA studied Industrial Design and I majored in ceramics but I also have my dreams of becoming a great filmmaker which I will become that I am sure. I currently write scripts which intend to sell very soon. My questions ate these! 1. What are your beliefs, values and strategies for achieving success. 2. Were there challenges and if yes, how were you able to surmount them? 3. Currently, Bollywood broke the records of their film sales with Baahubali 2 grossing over 1600crore and most surprising of all was Dangal breaking China market Ang grossing close to 2000crore worldwide which is very huge! What do you think is the major stumbling block to Nigeria film industry going worldwide and grossing very High like it's counterparts? I would really appreciate if u could answer some of these my questions especially No 1. I know you are busy but anytime you are free.. You can just answer it one at a time.. I am not in a rush sir. Thanks in anticipation.
