Set in the FCT, plot of ‘Drawing Strength ’tells the story of Lami Washik, a young beautiful Christian Architect living a fulfilling career dream until she finds herself at a cross road where her faith is questioned.

Her acclaimed architectural designs that have earned her fame and awards were not actually designed by her, but a long-time ‘junky friend’.
The exposed secret gets Washik world crashing, however, summoned the courage to start over again as she draws the ‘Strength’ she needs to start over.

The intrigues that followed the character and will showed by her are what makes ‘Drawing Strength’ a must-watch movie.

In an interview with NAN on the sidelines, Mrs Karachi Atiya, Executive Producer of “

Drawing Strength”, said it was a faith-based film geared toward promoting godly virtues and character re-awakening.She said that since the film was conceived to drive positive societal change, it had also been released online for viewers to watch for free.

“It is on how to navigate between right and wrong, and when you find out that what you are doing does not agree with your faith, you should have the courage to make a change.

“There is a spiritual code we are called to live by and many times, it runs contrary to what is normally accepted by others.

“However, to get rich and satisfy our desires for success, we sometimes trample on this spiritual code, it is only by God’s grace that we can glorify him in whatever we do.”(NAN)

Aside from this particular movie, he also has other good movies to his credit and also working on another great movie presently.

Amodu has worked on a couple of blockbuster movies in the past, like “Danger Of Curiosity” and “Gods Power” another movie that featured top actors including the late Bruno Iwuoha. He successfully produced these movies amongst other mind blowing pieces.

Before now, Igala movies have witnessed little or no recognition in the entertainment industry despite its enormous talent and creativity.

Meanwhile Amodu made emphasis on the fact that the movie industry has been affected not even by the pandemic but for about 5 to 6 years now, and that this effect took off when everything was digitized and the decoders came in to play, “I think the COVID-19 era is the best time for movies to sell because people are mostly indoors and watching movies but unfortunately, people here do not pay attention to the movies.

“However, with my strategy that I am bringing on board, that is my dream of becoming somebody who will champion the Igala world as regards having an Igala movie channel which I launched ten years ago and am still working on, I believe we should have one movie viewing centre where people can log onto”.
He further gave a word of advice to young up and coming artistes and people who intend to venture into the filmmaking business on the right way to go about it and some of the challenges they may face in the process, and their way to success.

“For upcoming artistes, I think they have a long way to go, either as an actor, a writer or a crew member.

They should possess perseverance because disappointment is the order of the day in the movie sector.”He further gave a word of advice to the up and coming actors and people who intend to venture into it that it has to do with his/her thinking.” I advise they should package themselves also.”
