Tell me about your move from Nigeria to the United States. Any bumps in the transition?
DAYO OKENIYI: I don’t remember anything being too surprising. The media, television, movies, and the internet have taken the globe and made it feel much smaller.
The Hunger Games is being called the new Twilight. How do you feel about the comparison?
