Speaking on Damilola Mike-Bamiloye’s speech at ICVM, Mike Bamiloye said he was invited to ICVM’s 50th conference but he was unavailable due to the lineup of activities he had, making the organizers of the program invite his son, Damilola Mike-Bamiloye.
He revealed that Damilola spoke on the topic “FAITH-BASED MOVIE MAKING IN NIGERIA AND THE IMPACTS IN AFRICA NATIONS” and was also asked to pray for the participants in Yoruba.
In Mike Bamiloye’s words’
I was invited as one of the Speakers in this year’s event – the 50th Annual Conference. But I could not make it because of other previous commitments here in Nigeria, so Damilola Mike-Bamiloye was invited to represent me.
The making of Christian movies in Nigeria has commanded the attention of the Western world and the faith based movie makers in America and Europe. They have observed that Nigerian Drama ministers and Christian film makers have impacted the African nations and Africans in diaspora. So the invitation was to speak on the secrets and the motivations for this move. The seminar and speech was based on “FAITH BASED MOVIE MAKING IN NIGERIA AND THE IMPACTS IN AFRICA NATIONS ”
And the Lord helped him. He did well. One of the high point of the international film festival was when he was invited to pray for the whole crowd in his mother tongue, YORUBA LANGUAGE. He projected the Nigerian Christian Film makers , he made Drama Ministers Proud, He lifted up the flag of Jesus Christ. He represented Nigeria well.” SEE PHOTOS BELOW
