After a life as a collegiate basketball player, Nigerian-British director and producer Oladapo Fagbenle had a gap period trying to figure out what to do. He tried out music and dabbled in different projects for 8 months till his brother nudged him to try out producing videos. After starting off under his brother’s media outfit Luti Media, he started producing videos for different directors, picking up tips till he felt confident enough to pursue directing.
