On how she was able to put the movie together:

“For money, we had to self-fund unfortunately, she says, we don’t have adequate funding for movies that we actually intend to go global, there isn’t that provision yet.”



She also explained that Nollywood stands a good chance of going global anytime soon, but she sees language as the only problem that stands as a barrier.

Lion Heart premiered at the TIFF Festival 2018 on Saturday, September 2018.
