Nsang's High and low moments in the industry:
"I can’t point to a high or low moment in the industry. I am very optimistic and constantly witnessing evolution and growth in the industry. My journey has been a learning experience, I have had the opportunity to learn from my fellow colleagues, and opportunities for exposure".

Opinion on the future of the Cameroon Film Industry:
"In Cameroon, the film industry is evolving. Though we are not yet where we want to be, we are not where we were 5 years ago.
We see improvement in the quality of our work, and the public is more receptive to our movies.
I anticipate that there would be even more improvement in the years to come. We have very committed and dedicated actors, producers and directors who are willing to put in the work, to carry the banner of our film industry to higher heights.
We also have opportunities for improvement such as; securing markets for our movies, we need to figure a way to sell our movies through live streaming services, so they become accessible worldwide."
Bodianga Bodi Nsang Dilong is also a social worker with an NGO in Buea, and she is a Philanthropist, extending her hands in providing education to the less privileged.
She is looking further to extend her generosity to women, who she believes if empowered, will impact the lives of many. 
To her, the woman is the foundation of the home, and empowering a woman would be beneficial for everyone under her unbrella, with kids being the first and direct beneficiaries.
Motivation for being charitable
"I believe in the power of giving back to society. You don’t have to be wealthy, to see the need to reach out to those that are less fortunate. Just by devoting your time to make someone else’s life easier, is a fulfilling experience. Doing what I do is a passion. Its neither burdensome nor stressful. Hence, taking on addition tasks have become manageable"

The many different tasks and her convenient and efficient flow in executing them, Nsang Dilong had this to say:
"It is important to follow your calling. We each have passions and desire to fulfill a greater calling. If we truly believe in something, we must be willing to put in work and effort to make it come to fulfillment. There would be obstacles but, if we keep moving, someday we shall accomplish our goals".
Nsang Dilong has won the hearts of thousands of fans at home and abroad, and she says the support from her public motivates her to even do better, and for that she concluded:
 'I am grateful'.
