Popular video director, ThankGod Omori Jesam Obono better known simply as TG Omori or Boy Director has recounted his journey to stardom.
Omori narrated how his acting career dates back to the period when the popular sitcom, Papa Ajasco was still airing.
According to him, in those days, after acting, he rarely had enough money for transport to go back home, but he turned up daily for each shoot because he wanted to put smiles on the face of his mum who would watch him on the TV when the show airs at 7pm.
He added that in those days, the only roles they were willing to give him had been that of a police or the devil.
