  1. I researched you and got to know that the team lead of this company is called Brother FEMI Dosun. God bless you for so many things you have been doing in the gospel wing of ministry. I am a fan of your blog and website in general and will love it if you pull your attention to whatever I might be saying. I am not being sponsored to do this but inspired in the Lord Jesus Christ to and also but because I also have seen and experienced it.
    I notice a young man for the past 10 years now and realised just few people have seen his works. Or probably he himself as not really proved the fame or maybe does not want the fame.

    His name is Daniel Ope Makinde on facebook, he’s a filmmaker and I think His strength is Cinematography and Directing. What attracted me to him is that. He trains people (churches, social community) on filmmaking, ministry, sales and digital marketing for free and even if he’s going to get cash, he charges quite affordable and sometimes I ask from afar if he’s in money.
    If not just last week, I was just informed that he’s a Pastor. Am sure you also don’t know. I am a secretary of a ministry and I know if I send you text you might not take it serious sir. During the COVID 19 lock down he even went on to join people to distribute palliative. I actually know someone who knows him. But I haven’t met him yet. Just for his philanthropy way of helping the young ones (whether gospel or professional) and way he’s pained in getting people out of the street. I implore GOSPELFILMNEWS. COM to Pls allow a biography on your platform on him. I only have seen him on TV and from afar but I would love to read about his story from you. Hes a fast growing film school owner. I know I can’t pay you but I will tell everyone of what you might have done and how I sent this to you. Yours in the LORD
