“Invisible threads make the strongest ties”- The Nigerian FilmMaker found his real connection




Aristotle, when asked about the ultimate purpose of human existence, replied with one word, Happiness. Materialism has taken over lives in such a way that the power of personal relationships, the ‘invisible threads,’ is being eradicated from the world. This is part of the reason why most people are unhappy and unsatisfied with themselves and with the lives they’re living. 

Genuine relationships are hard to find in life. But sometimes, one comes across someone in life he develops an instant connection with. These connections do not have a label or an explanation; they just exist. Such relationships’ intensity and purity cannot be put into words, making it even more meaningful and valuable. Instant connections are impossible to let go of.

In Search Of The Perfect Connection

Joseph Mbah, a successful and renowned filmmaker, has been among those few lucky individuals who find a real connection early on in their lives. Born on October 12th, 1990, in Nigeria, Joseph soon moved to the United States with his family. He got his education from Paradise Valley Community College, where he met Amber Thompson, a talented young girl. The two felt an immediate connection and decided to hold on to it for the rest of their lives.

What makes a relationship even more beautiful is when the interests of two people align with each other, a combination rarely found. Joseph and Amber, fortunately, found this combination as both were passionate about film making and production. Joseph, a writer, director, cinematographer, and producer, has experimented with acting by performing several roles. After going through an organic process, Joseph focuses on directing more than any other film-making role.

While growing up, Joseph watched movies starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jackie Chan. What made him realize how powerful the cinema is was Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight,” which he drew his inspiration from. Finding Amber, who held the same passion, was one of the happiest moments in his life.

Joseph and Amber have co-produced several films together. They have put in a lot of effort and hard work to reach their position in the movie industry. The success rate of films they have made together, such as Battlefield 2025 and Crampus Original (2018), proves the degree of compatibility they are living with.

Joseph and Amber got married on October 15th, 2020. Their nine-year-long journey has been nothing short of a dream. Amber Thompson, now known as Amber Oluchi Mbah, first worked with Joseph when making a web series called “Paranormal Manifest.” Soon after, they got their first paid gig and worked on a Nigerian Wedding in Las Vegas. The two projects’ success made them both realize how their combination is a plus and that they should work with each other more often.

Power Couple Taking Over THE CINEMA

The power of the cinema was what Joseph and Amber enjoy the most. Their interests complementing each other’s was what made them work extremely hard in the film industry and build their own production company, “Paradox Universe.”

The action-thriller “EXPO,” released in 2019, is one of the most phenomenal films produced by the Paradox Universe. The movie performed exceptionally well and paid tribute to the action classics of the ‘80s. Through their movie skills and expertise, Joseph and Amber have successfully marked their position in the movie industry and showcased their capability to the world through their work. Genesis: Fall of the Crime Empire, Trust and Possession are some of the other films that have been produced under the company, taking it to another level.

In summer 2020, Joseph and Amber produced a cooking show pilot for Chris Brown’s aunt and mother. The project is called “Cooking With OhSoBella,” featuring celebrities such as Christine Brown, Joyce Hawkins, and Kevin Mayes, the head tailor of Black Panther. Joseph and Amber are currently working on a new web series and a feature film for the African audience that is meant to be filmed in the United States.

Joseph started his career journey by shooting videos in his mother’s garage and uploading them on YouTube. He did have some family in the showbiz, including his older brother, for a brief period, but he paved his way in the industry by himself. The most special part of his career is how it has gifted him with Amber, his true companion. Through their dedication and commitment, Joseph Mbah and Amber Oluchi Mbah have come a long way in the world of film production. Their progress has been phenomenal, and their combination is an ideal example of a power couple.

At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.”

Crafting Excellence: Vidyut Xavier’s Journey from Assistant Choreographer to Dynamic Actor




A fresh new face has arisen in Hindi cinema, where extravagant performances frequently take center stage, mesmerizing viewers with his genuineness and adaptability. The definition of brilliance in the acting industry has been redefined by rising star Vidyut Xavier, who has had a remarkable career. From his humble beginnings as a choreographer’s assistant to his acting work, Xavier’s journey is inspiring.

The journey of Xavier began at the center of the Hindi film industry. He was already a part of the film industry because he was the son of renowned cameraman Thomas A. Xavier and had a mother named Swati Xavier, a well-known costume designer. He strongly connected to the filmmaking tradition, which fueled his desire to leave a lasting impression.

His ascent began with a role many wouldn’t consider glamorous: background dancer and assistant choreographer. Under the guidance of Rekha Prakash, Xavier has learned the art of movement and rhythm, setting the stage for his future success as an actor. This early exposure to performance nuances laid a strong foundation for the authenticity that would later become his hallmark.

His commitment to constant growth was a defining characteristic of Xavier’s development. He pursued a mass media degree to add intellectual rigor to his creative endeavors. His combination of intellect and creativity gave him a distinctive viewpoint that he would later apply to his acting roles.

Xavier’s entry into the television industry was made possible by the show “Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii.” He received praise for his natural acting technique in a field that is sometimes noted for its theatricality because his portrayal of Dr. Abhay Sathe struck a deep chord with the audience. The program allowed Xavier to emerge as an aspiring actor by displaying his aptitude for giving characters nuance and authenticity.

Xavier served as an assistant director in “Dabbang,” a seamless transition from television to movies from which he learned different aspects of what goes behind the screen. His ability to approach his profession in various ways demonstrated his commitment to participating in all facets of his endeavors.

With parts in shows like “Mahabharat” (TV) and “Pavitra Bhagya,” where he continually demonstrated his range as an actor, Xavier’s career continued to flourish. Notably, his music video “Jeene De” gave his artistic resume a new depth and demonstrated his adaptability outside the boundaries of conventional acting.

Vidyut Xavier stands out as a welcome example of an emerging talent who can change the way in a field dominated by well-known actors. His transformation from a dynamic performer to a choreographer’s assistant inspires struggling or upcoming artists by highlighting the value of sincerity, hard effort, and humility. He solidifies his reputation as a young actor who is skilled in acting, dancing, and performing his own stunts and brings a genuine charm to every job.

Xavier’s journey has begun, and he is gradually rising towards being extremely successful. He carries all the skills and talents it takes to be a star. He is ready to leave a lasting legacy based on excellence, authenticity, and the unrelenting pursuit of his dreams, thanks to his perseverance, passion, and dedication to his trade.
