So, recently I had the privilege to sit out with a passionate and intelligent man. And here is an excerpt from our verrrrry long conversation. If you find him as interesting as I did, you can always reach out to him through his social media handles and also share this post.
I am still waiting for a woman to break the lineup of manly interviews. If you are a female in the entertainment industry, hit me up. I want to hear and share your story too.
Sandra T. Adeyeye: How would you like to be introduced?
Michael: I’m Mr. Elemaru Michael a thespian and a filmmaker.

Michael: Yes.
Sandra T. Adeyeye: Do you do stage or screen productions?
Michael: I do both stage and screen.
Sandra T. Adeyeye: What's the difference and their challenges?
Michael: Film is presentation while stage is representation. The major challenge of stage is the dwindling of theatre-going culture
Sandra T. Adeyeye: If you could go back in time, is there anything you would do differently? (Do you regret being a thespian and would you change it if you could?)
Michael: I would make NUTAF a voice, change the curriculum, get more thespians in film business.
