Award winning producer of "A Wish", Elvis Chucks added another feather to his cap last Sunday when his last project, "True Citizens' won a star prize of N1 million at the Nigerian Integrity Film Award.

Hosted by the Federal Government of Nigeria, the film won in the category of Public Conduct Film Prize backed by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) 2012 .

The event took place at the Oriental Hotels, Lagos. The award winning filmmaker who won seven awards from his TV drama series, Happy Family on NTA network from the popular TAVA Awards 2011 is now a force to be identified with in the entertainment industry.

The movie, True Citizen, which won him the coveted award featured Nollywood, Alex Usifo Omiagbo, former Big Brother Africa winner, Uti Nwachukwu, Alex Ekubo, Bryan Okwara, and Kenneth Okoli.

His newest work, A Wish, featuring the likes of Funke Akindele-Oloyede, Patience Ozorkwor, Hafeez Oyetoro ( Saka), Bishop Imeh Umoh, and Helen Paul from the stable of Diamond Groove Pictures is currently having an impressive run at the cinemas.

The movie has been tipped to shatter records at the cinema due to the presence of talented Nollywood actress and brand ambassador, Funke Akindele and Bishop Imeh Umoh, the man who is beginning to become very noticeable as a result of his wittiness and passion for comedy roles. It would be recalled that Funke Akindele's movie, Jenifa made a box office hit at the cinema.

Speaking on the award, the award winning filmmaker said.

"This award has shown that there will always be a reward for diligence and hard work, I am very happy to receive it and I promise my fans that I will keep doing more for the industry"
