Among them were Executive Producer, Dr. Abramham Nwankwo and his wife, Donald and Onari Duke, Segun Arinze, Honorable Desmond Elliott, YAW, Bucci Franklin, Afeez Oyetoro (Uncle Saka), Kene Mkparu, Managing Director of FilmOne Distribution, Cynthia Uchenna Onwuka; Head Creative Industry Group of the Bank of Industry, Tolu Lord Tanner, Yomi Casual, and Yolanda Okereke to name a few.
