Over the last 3 years Obi has become arguably the successful Nollywood cinematic talent working today.

He says: ‘No-one will celebrate us, unless we celebrate ourselves. After 9 years of Screen Nation recognizing and appreciating UK and international African heritage Film and TV talent with awards, it looks like black talent has suddenly become fashionable for the mainstream award bodies. However, even after this new fad has faded and the mainstream has returned to business as usual, Screen Nation will remain to continue recognising the talents that help to give our people a voice and a face on TV and in films.’
