Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, Uzee thanked the organizers for recognizing him.

“The movie (Dark Closest) was a great film because it was a real combination of Northern and southern actors. Yakubu Mohammed was one popular Kannywood actor and I decided to feature him in the film. He did well and that earned him the best actor award,” Uzee Said.

Dark Closest also has actors like Eucharia Anunobi and others.

On his next movie, Redline, Uzee said he had finished all productions and that it would be shown on cinemas in November.

“Redline is another blockbuster I tell you and, by November it shall be at the cinemas. Then you will judge my take,” Uzee Said.
