Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Nassir has lauded award-winning film producer and director Daudi Anguka for supporting young talented producers in the region.

Speaking after attending the Kicheko Kikwetu 2 that was held in Mombasa, Governor Nassir said Anguka has been of great help in pushing local content creation.

“If you want to succeed, please get a hold of this man (Anguka). He gave me an audience when I was a Member of Parliament. The same spot, he gave me an audience when I am now the governor. You never know, he might do the same to me when I am the president,” said Nassir.
