Ever since Governor Udom Emmanuel, the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State came to power with his DAKKADA philosophy and his “Only God” mantra, institutions and individuals from the state have caught the bug of the philosophy, as they seem to be blazing the trail, accomplishing great feats and smashing records in every sphere of their endeavors, be it at the national level or internationally. Just last week, the state’s sponsored professional football team, Akwa United, against all odds for the first time in history emerged winner in the keenly contested Nigerian



Premier League (NPL), smashing existing records on their way to being crowned champion of the Nigerian professional football league competition. As if that is not enough, your FriendsOfNaija News platform can reliably confirm that there is currently in far away Los-Angeles, California, USA, another record of success being recorded by yet, another indigene of the State, and a Nigerian, Mr. Frank Abasiekong. According to the information at our disposal, Frank is the only Nigerian movie maker, whose movie ROOM10 has been nominated for premier in the STANDALONE Film Festival and Award which commenced yesterday, 6th, August, 2021.

Frank is a silent achiever, who has been doing a lot silently in the Nigerian Movie industry, NollyWood. A consummated picture man in directing, production, design and cinematography, who lives, talks, wishes, and constantly explores how to bring about needed positive societal changes through and with film. Frank Abasiekong has over the years, garnered massive experiences in the art of movie making. With first and second degree in Theatre Art and film making from the prestigious federal University of Uyo, other professional certificates, and lots of more.

The StandAlone movie festival and award is a movie and award festival, which usually holds once in a year in the Los Angeles city of California, USA, the screening is taking place at the Chinese Theatre, Los Angeles (TCL). With all the panel of judges big players and renown names in the HollyWood, we hope and pray that our own ROOM10, and Frank makes it big, and emerged winner in the best writer category, which the movie is nominated for. Kudus to Room10, kudos to Frank.
