To my co-stars, @seal@konstance001@atlanta.bridget.johnson@ekuedewor, thank you for bringing all of yourselves into this. Special shoutout to our stand-ins and background actors as well, a film is incomplete without you all.

They say a good director creates an environment, which gives the actor wings to fly. You did just that @idriselba. A big thanks to you and the entire crew who also made this project theirs. #Dust2Dreams is officially a wrap, and we cannot wait for the world to see what we have made.
