    Honestly, I am going to farabale (take time) and write one heckuva good story and see who will ‘epp me to act it and turn it into a blockbuster. Maybe that’s how I will become rich in this life. These last few days when I was sick at home and lay in bed watching movies on cable…let’s just say I wasn’t too impressed with some of these movies out there. Maybe I will be able to entice people like Chiwetel or who even knows, maybe Steven Spielberg or Oprah and get their buy-in on my story. In the meantime before I get really carried away, let me even know what this story is going to be about first. (**In I am tired of being an employee and want to be an employer of people mode**)

      You don’t need Oprah, Spielberg or Ejiofor. There are regular Nigerians like me who may be interested in investing in or working on a film project. Indie movies can be great too!
