Many thanks to the festival organisers, the Deputy High Commission of Canada to Nigeria’s Trade Department, and our dear Prime Video family for supporting us. When I was dreaming about making #GangsOfLagos years ago, I could never have known just where the journey would take me, but I couldn’t be more grateful.”
