All we need to do is to improve technically.”

He added that “Innovation is taking over; production-wise, we must continue to upgrade and keep improving to achieve the goal.

“The truth is that you are as good as your last job and as filmmakers, we must keep striving for perfection.”

Speaking on his latest production, which is to be distributed by Corporate Pictures nationwide, Adewale said, “my latest movie is titled ‘Ajoke Alagbo’ and I can’t wait for people to watch it.
