How I turned Ooni into actor — Dotun Taylor
A filmmaker, Dotun Taylor, has said that he decided to feature the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, in his new movie, ‘Take Me Home’, because it is about Yoruba culture.
He told Saturday Beats, “Ooni is the progenitor of all Yorubas, and such a character appears in the story, so we approached the king. He is our father, and his involvement in the movie is to strengthen the message.”
Speaking on what he aims to achieve with the movie, the movie director said, “The aim of the film is to draw renewed attention to the repatriation of Yoruba arts and artefacts that are scattered all over the world. In every part of the world, there are various properties belong to the Yorubas.
They may be called ‘art’, but they also possess spiritual energies, which are desperately crying to be returned to their source.”
On why he decided to shoot a film about Yoruba culture in the United States of America, Taylor said, “Hollywood is not exaggerated. It is the world’s filmmaking capital and the experience was awesome. It is a wonderful new frontier.
“Again, this is my heritage, my pride and essence. I am first a Yoruba man before any other thing. I am a Yoruba culture ambassador as well, so this is just me doing my job.”
According to a statement earlier sent to Saturday Beats, the movie is about the quest for originality, which led to the lead characters questioning the status quo and taking action in discovery of their destinies.
It is a story of an American family that gets stuck when their daughter is possessed (spiritually) after wearing an African masquerade costume which was stolen from Ile Ife, Osun State, Nigeria.
Actors in the movie include Lateef Adedimeji and Bayo Bankole; as well as Hollywood actors such as Dave Sheridan, Amber Rivette and Felissa Rose.

Olori Sekinat recounted how the then Prince Saheed had fallen in love with her after he spotted her at her mother’s shop in the popular Lagos Island market.
The queen made sure to stress that at the time, her husband wasn’t as wealthy and she had no idea that he would eventually become a king himself.
Olori Sekinat also mentioned that she had a knowledge of her husband’s philandering nature from the onset, but her patience and understanding nature was enough to keep her in the relationship and look past his excesses.
According to her, Oba Elegushi has always made it a point to prove his love and respect her position in his life even with the other women that occasionally come in and out of the picture. About producing an heir for Oba Elegushi
Fielding a question about not producing an heir for the king, Olori Sekinat made it clear that she has been blessed with three daughters and they have been raised to go shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts in the world.
Empress Njamah reveals shocking information about her estranged fiancé
Nollywood actress, Empress Njamah has finally penned down all the terrible things she went through and found out, in the hands of her estranged fiance, Josh Wade.
The actress made this known in a series of posts on her Instagram page on Wednesday.
Empress stated she had gotten back her Instagram page, while she recounted the emotionally draining experience in the hands of her partner.
She revealed that putting his picture on social media, gave many victims the opportunity to speak out.
She said, “I was glad I came out to speak, putting his picture out there has brought out so many of his victims. He’s known with different names and has really done terrible things to so many women.
“It’s his trade for years, take everything they have without mercy and blackmail them with their nudes. His pictures I out have exposed a lot about him, the appropriate authorities are on it.
“His still on the run, the police are on it. For those asking why I didn’t report to the police, of course, I did. I mustn’t put everything on IG.
“It’s a shame and a pity how a Blog took his fabricated story and wrote lies about me. Complete lies, we are our own problem.
“Reason victims can’t come out to speak cause of how people judge, (and) curse humiliate them. I have listened to over 100 women’s stories.
“It’s very sad that social media judges pick their phones to bully victims while the blackmailers roam the streets freely in due time when his apprehended by the authorities the real story will be made public and justice will be served.”
“When I said I have seen thousands of videos of known faces on his phones. People insulted me n said I was telling lies, not until people started opening up and talking.
“I have some of the videos I was able to take from his phones (which I gave the police). 2 reputable blogs confirmed it from the victims and reached out to me (thanks for being professional). Keep holding the facts, in due time).
“Same blackmailer has been to Kirikiri prison (if only you knew his offence) let me stop here for now.
“The blackmailer ran away with my car, international passport, 3 phones, valuables worth millions.
“After taking all my money, but not my life like he’s done to so many of his victims. Using my DM to chat with ladies asking if they want to meet someone who will change their lives for good. (I will never ask for such) then he starts chatting them up on his phone asking for dollar account and their nudes. So many fall for this and his blackmailing them already. Really sad.”
She added, “I went through a lot for months, all because I didn’t want my videos out there. Video calls this blackmailer recorded which people dating do and videos are taken from my house during my shower.
“Because of his evil intentions. I was able to escape and run for my life from his regular beating, threats, humiliation. (I practically lived in the hospital) because I exposed him, he then posted the videos thinking I was the same scared person. I overpowered him. Thank God I’m alive, free, getting my life back”.
