The outfit boasts of  four studios to meet the ever increasing demands of the entertainment and  corporate world for  commercials, music videos and short films. They  further confirmed their  place as industry giants when they acquired the Arri Alexa, the most expensive production camera in the world worth over N40 million. Several music videos have been shot at their facility and it’s also a hub for corporate commercials with telecoms giants, MTN and Globacom their recent clients. Koga Studios is the brain behind the sold-out concert, Top10 MICS  which last year brought together top 10 musicians like Femi Kuti, 2Face, Sir Shina Peters, P Square, Wiz Kid and others on a stage. 

Heroes and Zeros is directed by award winning director, Niji Akanni,  the brain behind brilliant Nollywood works like Aramotu and scores of television commercials.

He holds a B.A. (Dramatic Arts) from the University of Ife and an M.A. from the University of Ibadan. He is presently working on his PhD at the University of Ibadan.
