Lancelot whose friends, family and colleagues defer all olds to celebrate at a movie location in Benin where he is currently shooting a movie titled “Love upon the hills” was full of joy and thanksgiving to God for what he has been able to accomplish in such a short period of time.
He equally seized on the opportunity to sing a dirge for his beloved country, Nigeria who has been seeing great retrogression since 45 years and nothing seems to stop the free flow of such retrogression.
Here are what some of his colleagues said about him…

I wish you what Psalm 91 v 16 says,"with long life will I satisfy him, and shew him in my Salvation". Lance, i wish u more success and accomplishments. Happy Birthday!
When a king becomes too popular, there is only one reason to that. It’s because he not only leads but also listens and participates in the struggles, pain discomfort, joy and happiness of his people. At 45, his pairs know that his achievements are ground breaking and he hasn't even started be cuz of the fire and furry he exacts on his challenges. Happy birthday king. The maestro, true friend, true brother. Let heaven look at your heart and never hesitate to come when you ever make a call. May you be healthy and strong to live a very long and winning life. Amen. I am seeing you soon and we will as usual celebrate this one together even if it's not on the same day. God bless you, your home and your business. And truly may Jesus #bringbacksameoldnigeria..
