+ Temi Otedola’s Lifestyle On Kunle Afolayan’s Movie Location In Ile-Ife

Temiloluwa Oluwadamilola, the last daughter of billionaire business magnate and notable philanthropist, Femi Otedola is not a name that is unknown to many Nigerians at home and abroad. Temi, as she is fondly called, is known to have her fingers in different pies with fashion being the most prominent one with @jtofashion marking her online presence.

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.

My wife and I no longer together – Ikechukwu speaks on marriage crash

Published

on

Nigerian rapper and actor, Ikechukwu Onunaku has confirmed that his marriage has ended.

Recall the former Mohits rapper tied the nuptial knot with his fiancée, Ella in May 2021.

But speaking in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, Ikechukwu said he was now divorced.

He cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the desolation of his marriage, revealing that it was not due to infidelity. In Ikechukwu Onunaku’s words:

“My wife and I are no longer together. We separated due to irreconcilable differences. It wasn’t over infidelity. There were too much gaslighting, too much looking for faults, and too much listening to outsiders.

“I tried to save our marriage but I got to a point where I couldn’t tolerate my ex-wife’s excesses anymore and I showed her my other side and we couldn’t bear it.”

In the same interview with Daddy Freeze, Ikechukwu recounted his experience at the now-defunct record label, Mohits Records, owned by D’banj and Don Jazzy.

The rapper claimed D’banj used to cheat him out of his hard earned money by giving him stipends after making millions.

According to him, D’banj would pay him a meagre N50,000 for shows he was booked for, despite the actual fee being over N1.5 million. He said the ‘koko master’ used to treat him like he was doing him a favour.

However, he mentioned that D’banj later increased the payment to N150,000 after obtaining permission from his mother.

Rudeboy refutes Eedris Abdulkareem’s claims that 50 Cent assaulted P-Square

Published

Paul Okoye, aka Rudeboy of the P-Square, has refuted Eedris Abdulkareem’s claims that the group was assaulted by American rapper 50 Cent and his crew at a concert held at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos in 2004.

Abdulkareem claimed in a recent podcast interview that 50 Cent’s crew “flogged and chased” Nigerian artists, including P-Square, out of the backstage area at a concert.

He said he was the only Nigerian artist who refused to be intimidated out of the backstage.

Reacting during a recent Instagram live session with fans, Rudeboy said P-Square never attended the said show due to the inability of the organisers to reach an agreement with them on the booking fees.

He said Abdulkareem betrayed Nigerian artists by going behind them to accept “peanut” from the show organisers after they had already agreed on lucrative performance fees.

Rudeboy said: “P-Square did not go for the [50 Cent] concert. We had another concert. We were never billed. The reason was because they offered us peanuts, and we refused. But Eedris Abdulkareem accepted the peanut and was expecting VIP treatment. 50 Cent crew didn’t beat you well.

“Respect yourself. P-Square was never billed for that concert. Daddy Showkey, Tony Tetuila, everyone is telling you guys that Eedris is a big liar. We know he is a lair. We were never billed for that concert. We didn’t go.”
