With Okafor’s Law, expectations are high as to how far Omoni and her team can go on this.
Speaking with Gabriel Afolayan, a member of the cast, he rated the work as a “high level standard.” “This is a very ‘high level standard’, this is one of those set that you would be on and you are glad that you are working. You get to experience a thorough film making process, the breakdown of scenes and shots and the feel of intense lightening. Those are the very important things that most of the filmmakers don’t even get to do sometime and having Yinka Edward on set, it couldn’t have been any better, with standard equipment, standard crew in terms of numbers.”
He also rated Omoni’s directing skills as being special. “She is special, very special. She knows everything she’s looking for and that’s one thing some Directors don’t know about. She works in line with the vision of what she’s doing. I’m very impressed with her skills and these skills will take her places.”
