In a chit chat with our correspondence, he described his new movie Oba Bi Olorun as one of his Best Project he has worked on so far. The story was inspired and written by Ibrahim Yekini IteleD Icon. The idea was bore out during a timeout in a hotel. We discussed and planned then I took the task to produce the story.
According to the Producer, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. During the screenplay, it was tasking. The question is how to get all the proposed cast on set. Several living legends were involved in the project, it really took us much effort to get the legends to work on the project, but with the assistance of Itele my director it was a dream come true.
There are lots of challenges in producing the movie from Pre Production to Production to Post Production. But To God Be The Glory, it was a success. The movie was shot at Awe town in Oyo state Nigeria.
During the interaction with the actor, he further revealed, “Acting is a passion. It is what I enjoyed doing as a craft, it as well exposed to more creativity and ideas. Many people label me wrongly, but before I started acting i worked as a Graphic Artiste. I have worked with a formidable agency before starting my own company. I am into Digital Printing, Branding and Supplies.
