“I’m very excited and happy about the movie because it’s a very special movie for me. I will say the project is divine.
” I listened to a song featuring Tope Alabi and I must have listened to the song over 52 times while driving and when I got home, I knew I had to write something about it.
” I wrote it and without editing or reading, I finished and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning to read the story, I was amazed, so much that I didn’t believe I could have written it.
“So, after writing the story, I just shared it with my social media fans and that was it.
” I had moved on only for me to get a DM from a Nigerian, who is also a gospel singer reaching out to me and requesting for the cost and logistics to be part of making the project a reality.
“The journey has been ordained from writing to producing. I remember we did not have money to call Blossom.
” But when I sent the script to him and told him I do not have money.
” But to surprise, he called me back to say, Biodun, you know what, I just want to be a part of this project and it’s amazing how so many people have been reaching out,” she told source.
