He eventually went into script writing and film production in 1995. Though an established writer and producer, he seems to have a lot of passion for directing. He warmed himself into the hearts of movie lovers both in Nigeria and beyond with his consistency, quality and attention to details.

This may explain why he chose to stick to the action genre which obviously has remained a no go area for film makers in developing countries because of its presumed difficulty, time consumption, technical demands and high cost of production. He was part of the five-man delegation that represented Nigeria at the just concluded 32nd Cairo international film festival, in Egypt.

In 2006, his movie explosion was chosen to represent Nollywood in Israel, during a cultural festival tagged fresh face of Nigeria where it premiered to a full international audience. His recent 35mm film, mission to nowhere launched Nollywood to international cinemas, securing general release on all the chains of elite cinemas in U.K, Dublin, Scotland, South Africa, Barbados and Nigeria.

Teco Benson is the director of the just released blockbuster movie "Two Brides And A Baby", alongside Blessing Effiom Egbe, the producer.
