During his initial visit to Lagos, Yemi Blaq revealed that Steph-Nora Okere played a crucial part in his early days, hosting him and providing valuable insights into Nollywood's operations. She offered guidance on navigating the industry and maintaining relevance.

Yemi also expressed gratitude to Mercy Johnson, recounting an instance where she advised him to cut his long hair for a movie role, emphasizing the unique opportunities he had been presented with. He highlighted the support received from various individuals, including Meg Video Links, who gave him the chance to play lead roles in their productions.

In Yemi Blaq's words: "The people who helped me while I was coming up were Steph-Nora Okere. She showed me the ropes. She was a good host when I came to Lagos. She told me some things about the industry and how to comport myself. I will also say Meg Video Links gave me the chance to play my lead role. Apart from that, other people gave me chances in their movies. I will also say Mercy Johnson (helped me in my early years in the industry). Then, I used to spot long hair and Meg asked me if I wanted to cut my hair for a role I went to ask her (Mercy), and she advised me to cut it. She said people have been in the industry for so long and they are looking for the opportunity that I have."
