You have a cast that is clueless about the raison d'etre of your film production. They are only there to be seen on the screen and collect the money.
They don't know and so cannot see the Big Picture. So, they see only the small picture and that is what they have.

Linda in particular was only 17 when she came to see me in my office in 1997, 20 years ago, when I was the Editor of the rested Affections magazine on Shiro Street in Fadeyi, Lagos.
She said she wanted to be a fashion model and she did, because of her loyalty and tenacity.
She was loyal and obedient.
Sometimes, we walked from Mushin to Surulere and once she had to sit on my legs on a "Danfo" minibus when there was only one available seat.
I took h…
