Though he's still quite young, Tope Tedela has mastered the craft of method acting and consistently manages to pull off character after character, each portrayal completely different from the last. It was a natural step in his progression therefore, to go behind the scenes and  explore film making from a completely different perspective.

There's no denying he has an incredible work ethic too because since the last time he hit up Jara, 'What Lies Within' has been completed, debuting in cinema's across Nigeria scoring awesome reviews and two awards at the Zuma Film Festival Awards

That said, the film's success is only one side of the story because Tope revealed that project also lead to a lot of personal growth. In his own words, he came away from the experience a "wiser" and "more refined human being". He attributes this to learning how to deal with people and all their complexities while shouldering an immense amount of pressure. In spite of all this, Tope remains the soft-spoken and humble star he's always been, electing to never beat his own drum but let the art speak for itself and that's something to be commended
