"Sat down for a chat about Nigerian filmmaking and my @newyorkfilmacademy education thus far. I really REALLY hope to be able to open a world class film & music school in Lagos. We need it. May God help me pull it off. Even if we start with NYFA in Lagos as summer school type thing 2018.. it would be so dope. Already started trying to reel in support for it from my corporate friends. With all the talented artists and storytellers we have, this is absolutely necessary. What do y'all think?" - Banky Wellington
