Speaking with Saturday Sun, Otanwa said;

“I love to do stories I can connect with. It’s totally fine to do stories just for entertainment. But as a person, I do things that are important to me, stories I feel are impacting. I feel that I was gifted this talent for a reason and I will like to use it for that reason.

“It got me to a point where I am actually picky about the kind of movies I do. For some actors, they want to be seen everywhere, I don’t care about being seen everywhere. I want to be able to trust my motivation enough for being a part of a project to give that project my all.

“Visibility for me is not a reason for doing any film. Visibility cannot be my reason for doing a movie. In Africa, we are so blessed yet we are plagued with some circumstances we need to shed light on. I like to use my talent to talk about things that are important. I want to go to bed knowing that my work touched lives.”
