When leaving for the awards on September 28, she had indicated that a lot more was in store, including preparations for a television series which would be a collaboration of Kenyan and Nigerian cast and crew.
âI am overwhelmed with what God is doing in my life and I am so grateful for the new Nollywood family that God connected me withâ¦ My intention is to introduce as many Kenyans as possible to Nollywood. I canât wait to see Riverwood and Nollywood working together,â she said.
