Yomi humbly acknowledged the esteemed status of his senior colleagues such as Jide Kosoko, Antar Laniyan, Oga Bello, Baba Wande and RMD.

He affirmed that the abovementioned actors, whose careers span decades and have earned multiple awards, are all rightfully deserve the title of Nollywood legends.
