Recently, Temi delved into the motion picture scene with her debut coming up on a high note with veteran Nollywood director, Kunle Afolayan’s ‘Citation’. The movie boasts of an ensemble cast of notable actors which include; Joke Silva, Ini Edo, Yomi Fash-Lanso, Gabriel Afolayan, Sadiq Daba, Haitian-French actor Jimmy Jean-Louis among many others.

The movie began shooting on January 15, 2020, at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun state location, which will be the first of multiple locations. The movie got a boost with a surprise visit from Temi’s parents – Femi and Nana Otedola. Yesterday, Sunday, January 26, the couple took time out of their tight schedules to visit their daughter in Ile-Ife. They spent quality time with her and encouraged her to put in all her best in her debut outing The Otedolas also visited Afolayan and members of his production crew, notably, Tunde Kelani, the veteran cinematographer, Seun Soyinka, the Managing Director of Quotientedge and executive producer of Afolayan’s movies inside their caravan.

The Otedolas were thrilled to have experienced how the magic of movie making is done. They also shared very insightful and interesting moment with Kelani during their visit.

Meanwhile, sources disclosed to The ELITES that Temi is really stealing the show with her lavish princess lifestyle on the movie set. She is reported to have been assigned two patrol trucks along with some policemen for security. She is also assigned two personal cooks and one butler. Along with these, Temi is also reported to bathe with water in sachets. She also came to Ile-Ife with several cartons of bottled water, which are being used for drinking purpose. However, being a well-brought up and humble lady, Temi is said to have won the hearts of everyone on the movie set. She has wormed her way into Joke Silva’s heart and the veteran screen icon in turn, smothers her with motherly love. Also, sources disclosed that Temi always joins the entire crew in feasting from the food, cooked and served by Oyo Amala, a popular catering outfit, based in Lagos.

Boasting an ensemble of A-list actors of diverse nationalities, as is the character of the film company, one can also underscore Citation as another launching pad for new actors and resurgence for underrated talents by Afolayan’s Golden Effects Pictures.

Written by the company’s long-standing screen writer, Tunde Babalola, ‘Citation’ explores a subject of social decadence in the educational sector and it focuses on sexual harassment on university campuses. It tells the story of Moremi Oluwa (Temi Otedola), a fun-loving 21-year-old student on campus in Nigeria. Incensed at being ill-treated by a trendy university don, Lucien N’Dyare, she drags him before the University Senate.

The ensuing intrigues define Moremi’s world against that of the respected academic, in a male-dominated bastion.

The shooting of ‘Citation’ is expected to end in the middle of February and it will hit the cinemas later in the year.

Afolayan, through his outfit, Golden Effects Pictures, a limited liability company incorporated in July 2005 as a film production company, has produced successful and widely acclaimed blockbuster feature films namely: Irapada (Redemption) Figurine (Araromire) Phone Swap, October 1, Roti, Omugwo, The Tribunal, Hanatu, The CEO, and Mokalik.
