    I think some of your Nigerian critics would say that the film is not reflective of Nigeria or Nigerians, that is simply a figment of your imaginary fantasy of Africans induced by your gay bias. How would you meet such criticisms?

      Well, the film is not meant to represent Nigeria, or Nigerians in its entirety or anyone in particular. But its a story of true love. It is meant to prove that love can and does exist between two men. It proves that Love will always win regardless. We have seen that happen and still happening in different parts of the world, and Yes in Nigeria, there exist same-sex couples who love each other deeply.
