Over the past three years or so, I had seen a few movies directed by Nigerian women. I think the first was The Meeting by Mildred Okwo, followed by The Visit by Funke Fayoyin, One Room by Blessing Egbe and then The Wedding Party by Kemi Adetiba. All these were movies that stood out for one reason or the other. I had a kind of covenant with God that I would do my first book in 2017, one day, the idea of this book came to me like a whiff. I shared it with my wife and then my friend Judith Audu Foght; they both felt it was a great idea. I felt I needed some more of justification for it; so, I did a bit of research. I realised that the job of a movie director isn’t exactly an easily recognisable one. We see actors and love them, but we hardly ask about directors. I felt it would be nice to do a profile of these lady directors all of, who are doing very well. Ultimately, I thought by sharing their stories, each of these women would serve as inspiration to younger people especially at the time when role models are scarce in the country.
