He added, “Even before we started writing the script, we had very clear objectives in addition to creating a fun comedy experience. Some of these objectives included; to tell an authentically-Nigerian story, to impart knowledge through entertainment, to showcase the beauty of Nigeria and the integrity of Nigerian people, to satirically point out some wrongs in the society thus leading to self-assessment and voluntary change, and more. We are pleased at the results thus far as we have received several commendations from audience members nationwide, as well as from Government parastatals and agencies.” The star-studded Knockout is fun for the whole family, and is still available at cinemas across Nigeria and Ghana.
