Film & Television
I started writing my very first film script at the age of 14. It took me a good two years to painstakingly put together a complete script for a movie entitled: Above Suspicion. Once I finished the script and was convinced it was error-free (or as error-free as it could possibly be under those circumstances), I searched for an address, any address, of a Hollywood director, sacrificed a month's worth of pocket money to buy stamps, and mailed it. I remember feeling awash with a sudden rush of elation when I walked out of my local post office. That was me in the late-90s, an African boy naively and blindly (fantastical even, if I think about it) dreaming about the bright lights of Holywood, itching to tell my stories. And now, to find myself, a couple of decades later, sitting here, the London skyline drapped outside my 7th-floor window, working on an actual script, is beyond surreal. And it's only the beginning. I hope, intend, to write many many more to share with millions the stories that run in a kaleidoscopic endless loop in the restless story machine that is my brain. Here is a flavour of what I have been working on and what you can expect to watch on a big or small screen near you in the not-too-distant future.
