#UtopiaAu   First of all, welcome Mr.E, It's great to catch up with you. I know your a bit of a pioneer when it comes to filming Nigerian music videos like Styl-Plus and Now Tunde's new music video "Tosibe ft Muyen & Pado" & your upcoming movie Jand Hustle. It's already getting a lot of hype online.

#UtopiaAu   I read your profile on IMBD that you have won awards, congrats!, very impressive.
So let's start with getting to know who Mr.E is, what works you have done and tell us about the awards you have received?

#MrE   Thank you for your warm welcome Nicole! Yes, I've been very busy filming,working on production and traveling between London and Nigeria. I'm currently back in London for a short time.

#MrE   I started as a child actor in Kano, but stopped for a while to face my studies. My feature directorial debut was 'Heaven's Bride' (1999). I later worked in TV for about 6 years on magazine shows like 'Soundcity', 'Director's Cut', 'Jukebox', and some TV dramas; 'Blaze of Glory', 'One Love' and 'Husbands & Wives' but my main niche was in producing & directing award winning music videos for such artistes like Styl-Plus, Djinee, Nomoreloss, Ruggedman, Olu Maintain, Folake Umosen to name a few.

#MrE   In 2008, my short film; 'Chill Pill' (2007) won the Fokus Dialog Award at the Sehsuchte International Student Film Festival, in Potsdam, Germany.
Later that year, I made Nigeria's 1st CGI movie; 'Smoke & Mirrors' (2008). It was nominated for Best Feature Film at the Abuja International Film Festival and for Achievement in Visual Effects at the African Movie Academy Award, both in 2009.

#MrE   Over the years, my mentor has been Victor Okhai. He is the founder of In-Short Film Festival, as well as the International Film and Broadcast Academy, Lagos. Where I attained a Diploma in Television and Film Production in 2003.

#MrE   In 2012, I obtained a Diploma in Digital Film Making at SAE London, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Digital Film Making at Middlesex University, London in 2013.

#MrE   I also have a Producer's Foundation Certificate from the Rain Dance Training School in London, run by Elliot Grove (founder of the British Independent Film Festival).

It is run by my wife; Ibironke Ojesebholo. She is my partner, and usually performs such roles as Executive Producer, Art Director, and Script writer. We met on the set of our 1st movie; 'Heaven's Bride (1999). She was a co-writer on that set.

#UtopiaAu   What inspired you to be a film director?

#MrE   I have always wanted to be in TV and movies for as long as I can remember, but I think I made the decision to become a film maker (director) when I saw 'The Making of Michael Jackson's Thriller" by John Landis. It was the 1st 'behind the scenes' documentary I had ever seen, and the whole experience was mind-blowing! Then I said to myself, "hey! I can do that". Lol.

#UtopiaAu  Lets talk about your upcoming NollyWood film Jand Huslte. What is the movie about and where was it filmed?

#MrE   'Jand Hustle' (2013) is a dark comedy about Jimi Bendel, an opinionated Nigerian, who travels from West Africa to East London, in search of love and financial freedom.
Jand Hustle was filmed in both Nigeria and England.

#UtopiaAu  Who are the cast members of Jand Huslte?

#MrE  It stars Ehizojie Ojesebholo (me), Rachael Oniga, Oyinka Yusuff, Kevin Hallet, Leonie Zeumer, Omoh Kallista and Okechukwu Chima.

Written and Produced by Ehizojie Ojesebholo (for Ceroms Media Productions) & Funmi Adesanya (TJD & D Productions).

#UtopiaAu   What was it like for you to star in your own film?

#MrE    It was a dream come true. I'm usually behind the camera; as director, DOP, producer or editor, and even if I did show my face, it would be just for a few minutes. This is my 1st time playing the lead role in any of my productions.

#UtopiaAu  You mentioned you worked on videos for Styl-Plus. What was it like to work with Tunde again and Direct and produce the 'Tosibe' music video?

#MrE   I had worked with Tunde before; when he was a member of Styl-Plus and in my opinion, he is the coolest member of the band.
We worked together on Tosibe this year; as part of Jand Hustle's motion picture soundtrack. It was so cool! He is humble, talented & great to work with. He is also super cute, hehehe. #MrE @ehizojesebholo

#UtopiaAu  Yep, lol but so true Mr E and all the fans simply love Tunde.
Tunde is an amazing artist, producer, a super fab person so let's see what Tunde has to say?

#UtopiaAu  We warmly welcome our celebrity guest Tunde to this exclusive interview. We are loving your music from Sydney Australia and all over the world. What was it like to work with Mr.E again?

Tunde Akinsanmi: Thanks Nicole for having me right here cause I'm loving it already. And yes Mr E...... blah blah I worked with Mr E during my days as a Styl-Plus member and loved the way he translated stuff on screen. By the way, he shot the award winning video "Call My Name" back in the days. Working with him on Tosibe was amazing cause we understood each other  perfectly well. Can't wait for Jand Hustle to be released on the Big Screen". #Tunde @tundeakinsanmi
