“The movie stems from a long story which has already been told before 2Baba supported the people to join a protest and this spurred different occurrences in a matter of few days. the story basically is to tell and show Nigerian youths and general public that if they believe in their power, they can always get the desired change because every thing starts with the Power of 1,” he remarked.
