The crew’s ingenuity earned them the support of a popular producer in the country who initiated a fundraising campaign in their name and amassed them nearly $6000 with which to purchase new equipment for more quality films.

Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna governor, who recently invited the team, praised their creativity. He also offered them government support and constituted a team of senior officials to work out “the details with their families.”
