During this current visit to the US, the producer of the award-winning Land of Shadows has shuttled between Maryland and Ohio. In Ohio, Agbor met and held talks with potential film producers who have expressed their interest in contributing to the growth of the Cameroonian film industry. The outcome of Agbors Ohio visit will be topical in the coming months.

Meanwhile in Washington DC, the popular film producer attended the maiden edition of the Cameroon Entertainment Awards, CEA. His presence at the red-carpet event drew attention from anxious lovers of his movies, many of whom expressed frank excitement upon meeting the star.

In one of his American trips in 2008, he co-produced a film with an America filmmaker. He has since been in talking terms with potential marketers of Cameroonian movies and good helpers of the film industry back home.

He owns three big-seller movies circulation worldwide Before the Sunrise, The Blues Kingdom (starring Ivan Namme, Zack Orji, Clarion Chukwurah, Quinta Eyong Ashu) and Land of Shadows (starring Solange Yijika, Moma Pascal aka Bob, Jim Iyke).
