It was a role of the screen version of Chinua Achebe’s novel Things Fall Apart Nkem Owoh became a household name after he featured in the hit movie long-john and he also landed the lead role in the popular movie Ukwa alongside big names like Sam loco Efe.

He was all the while going about as a stringer on TV when NTA Enugu came up and I was welcome to accomplish something for the station and along the line, The New Masquerade was relaunched and I joined the team. At once, I was the sole-content author for the arrangement and now and again I made a character for myself inside the play, this is the purpose behind a portion of the short appearances I made in the now refreshed TV satire.

Inside that equivalent period, the late Ken Saro-Wiwa thought of Bassey and Company. He made me the creation director. This specific offer was extremely captivating on the grounds that I was given an official vehicle, a house, an office and all other required accommodations that supported my activity. This was in Enugu despite the fact that we had our primary office in Port Harcourt. At a phase, I was the content proofreader of Bassey and Company. Individuals didn’t observe these. It was the point at which I went to the spotlight that some returned down the world of fond memories to find that I have been around for quite a while.
