His video productions on instagram have been generally welcomed. His works are viewed as profoundly humorous and engaging. In this meeting with WALE LAWAL, the humor vendor opened up on how the Ooni of Ife got him to quit utilizing his mainstream expression, ‘Aye o kunle mo.’ Enjoy it.
Lets talk about the drama you did with the Ooni, that one basically wowed everybody. Relatively few performers have had such a benefit since you pretty much gave the Ooni a content and transformed him into an entertainer. How did the thought happen and how simple or troublesome was it persuading the Ooni to be important for that venture?
It was a staggering encounter. The Ooni’s messengers masterminded me to get a solicitation to the castle and we went. Personally, the Ooni has consistently been somebody I appreciated.
He’s energetic, he’s lively, he’s enthusiastic about the young and that is a delightful thing to see. He’s additionally an obliging individual. Prior to that time, I’d been to his castle once. Obviously, at that point, I wasn’t the Mr. Macaroni that everyone knows today. We were on a film venture at that point called Lugard. I was a cast in the film. We shot in Osun state and Yinka Salawu said gives up and welcome the Ooni, that we may see him since he approaches the castle. It was a bet. Fortunately for us, we met him. He connected with us, gotten some information about the film business and how it’s going. He requested my name and I said Mr. Macaroni and he stated, ‘ah, Mr. Macaroni, mama stress, won ni pe mama ko e je’, signifying, ‘don’t stress, individuals will before long beginning praising you.’
He didn’t recall however when I reminded him he stated, no doubt, and began discussing that day and what happened. He remembered everything obviously. I was completely overpowered in light of the fact that he gave me that he’s been after me. He told about the specific recordings that he truly cherished. He persuaded me past questions that he knows my specialty. He was in any event, talking the manner in which I talk in those recordings, so it was absolutely overpowering for me.
I didn’t go there to shoot a video, I didn’t plan to do a play or anything like that however I took my group along. That is my specialty whenever I’m heading off to certain spots that I consider could hold possibilities of a potential shoot.
Along these lines, I said to my kin, ‘folks, we should go, anything can occur.’ So, when we had spoken and saw that he likewise cherished my specialty, one way or the other, I just chipped it in.
In spite of the fact that I was squirming, kabiyesi realized I needed to state something however didn’t have the liver to state it. Thus, kabiyesi now stated, what is it, state what you need to state.
I nowsaid to him that, ‘kabiyesi, I’m simply contemplating whether you could accomplish something for us that can pass a message to the individuals. What’s more, he concurred.
In the event that you saw, that specific video was all the more an educational. In spite of the fact that I like that a large portion of my recordings are consistently out to show something, however that specific video, the manner in which it was organized, it was carefully to pass a message since when I got to the castle and I prostrated, he resembled, so you can prostrate, abi? That in my recordings I generally state, ‘yes on kunle mo,’ that so for what reason am I prostrating at that point? Also, everybody was giggling.
Furthermore, when I state that in my recordings, it’s not to deride culture, it’s to scorn the character, that he has discarded his status as a senior in the general public and he’s in any event, going similar to telling the youngsters, ‘affirmative o kunle mo, mama kunle funmi,’ on account of what he’s searching for.
In any case, in any case, taking a gander at it from the point Kabiyesi was disclosing to me, he said individuals probably won’t see it like that. He said I have an enormous after, a huge impact on the adolescent, when I state ‘affirmative o kunle mo’, it sort of says that culture is presently obsolete.
Furthermore, I’m a Yoruba myself and I would prefer not to be the one to go over that sort of message. I would prefer not to be the one saying individuals ought to get rid of that that aspect of our way of life. Thus, it was there that the idea of that video came and in the event that you saw, from that point on, I quit saying in my recordings that, ‘yes o kunle mo.’
Anyway, you’re stating that you have quit saying, ‘affirmative o kunle mo,’ in your recordings?
Truly, in the event that you saw, from that video to now, I have never said it again. I dropped that line totally.
What’s more, how has that specific video with Ooni helped your profession?
Gracious, no, it was all over the place. The video was all over. The entirety of the top sites expounded on it. The papers additionally did likewise, it was all over the place. In all truly, it contributed enormously to my profession. Many individuals, a great deal of brands, presently observed that this individual is qualified to be related with by God’s beauty, I mean, we are discussing the Ooni here and we as a whole know he’s no little ruler. For him to have showed up in the video, it implied a ton for me and for my image also and that was obvious in the manner individuals got it. It was wonderful. It was overpowering.
