OfficialUniqueBlog: Looking back at how far you have come in this career, what are you thankful for?
Jamiu Azeez: Looking back, the first person I want to thank Is God, he has been there for me more than I deserve, another person is my Mother, she’s the pillar that has given me a solid position on the face of planet. I can’t over emphasize her love and doggedness and lastly my FANmillies. I don’t call them fan because without them I don’t think I would be granting this interview today.
OfficialUniqueBlog: What standards has your brand set for the industry?
Jamiu Azeez: My brand has tried to give the audience why they should expect more from us (the youths) if u see my.movies, I try to carry along most of the young people and I am glad that we (the youths) are doing beautifully well.
OfficialUniqueBlog: How do you define your acting style?
Jamiu Azeez: Simple but uncommon.
OfficialUniqueBlog: Would you reject a script? Why?
Jamiu Azeez: Yes I would reject a script, why because I feel Nollywood needs to be taken to a level where it would be generally accepted, if your script isn’t catchy or content filled enough, I won’t take it, I have a brand, I have expectations from my viewers and I don’t think I am ready to disappoint them.
OfficialUniqueBlog: In an age where fake news are peddled around in the industry, do you think actors need public relations officer for their brand?

OfficialUniqueBlog: Do you think you’ve arrived?
Jamiu Azeez: I would be joking if I say I have arrived, truth is, nobody has arrived. We all have something or someone we look up to. Even Bill gates looks up to someone (*laughing*) so I am still on my way.
