Kemi Adetiba, Nollywood filmmaker, says she has given herself two-five years to win an Oscar, which is regarded as the most prestigious film award in the world.
Adetiba revealed her desire to win the award in a yet-to-be-aired episode of CNN’s African Voices.
“I honestly do believe that winning an Oscar is going to come very soon; I’ve given myself two to five years,” she said.
Adetiba who started out as a music video director said she had an inkling that ‘The Wedding Party’ was going to be a very successful movie.
“I knew it was going to break the record, I knew it was going to do very well, I felt it, I sensed it,” she said.
“The greatest thing you can do for yourself is every time you have the opportunity to handle someone’s project, knock it out the park, and that is what I live by every day.”
Kemi Adetiba also explained the motivation behind her decision to create ‘King Women,’ an interview series featuring successful and powerful Nigerian women.
“The reason why I developed King Women is because I wanted women to see these role models of the earth, these women that we draw inspiration from that we put on pedestals, I wanted them to see them in their glory, but also understand that they have also gone through life, and life for them was not easy,” said Adetiba.
