yvonnevixenekwere: Mummy… it may have taken years to be appreciated as you were at the AMVCAS but I’m beyond happy some one took notice and decided to make it happen. While in the audience tearfully listening to you speak and joining thousands of other to applaud you, I realised how important it is to do what one loves, work hard, be kind and persistent. I honoured you then and I will continue to honor you. Thank you for the value you contributed to the film industry.
