Actually, this year, I made up my mind about something. I said I want to become Afobaje, meaning the Kingmaker, the star maker. Her name is Lolade Okunsanya . I actually met Lolade on Instagram. The following season we did a movie, Prophetess, the movie is written by, Directed, owned by, and produced by Niyi Akinmolayan. I think Lolade saw the movie and liked it. She just posted omg I like this movie. Toyin Abraham did so well! I didn’t even know her. So someone sent the post to our Artists’ Group, to the film group. I have never spoken to her before, in fact, she screamed am I dreaming? And I’m like okay, I want you to be an actress. She said, please it is one of my dreams, but I don’t have the opportunity, I said okay, now you have the opportunity, I am going to call you for a movie soon. So I asked for her number, and she sent it to me. So I called her for my Youtube movie, and there is something about me, when you are acting I look at your expression, I am not interested in you shouting, but just your expression. So, I saw her expression- this girl is a fantastic actress, she acted so well. So there was another YouTube film, I called her again. I made up my mind that for any movie I want to do now from this year, I will be featuring new faces. So I sent her the script, and ask if she could do it. And She said yes and that is it. I am so impressed.

Toyin also tells the Media Room Hub about the importance of this film, religion, faith, how motherhood has changed her, future plans, and a host of other exciting topics.
