(INTERVIEW) MY NEXT FILM WILL BE THE BIGGEST-KUNLE AFOLAYAN

Regarded as an established actor, filmmaker/producer, Kunle Afolayan shot into public view with his not-so dimunitive role (Aresejabata) in the 1999 Mainframe box office, Saworoide’, after then, many felt he had receded from the public view. Not until few years ago, when he earned our trust with Irapada and then award-winning films, Figurine and Phone swap. Produced from his Golden Effects stables, his movies are not only poles different from the wishy-washy ones which flood the market but they speak lots of volumes in terms of originality, storyline, quality and many more. There is no gainsay that his recent film, Phone Swap is a Nollywood production with a class, infact the buzz surrounding it is still very intense.   The film had its premiere barely two months in Nigeria and Ghana got four nominations at the recently concluded Africa Movies Academy Awards (AMAA) but claimed the Achievement in Production design prize.In this short interview, he speaks on the secret behind his first-class movies as well as other issues. Enjoy and share! I ask, what differentiates Kunle Afolayan from other filmmakers?   In a very relaxed mood, the soft-spoken actor didn’t mince words, he exuded a lot of confidence all through. “I think it is just my work that speaks for me and the fact that my mindset is different from a whole lot of people.” He began.    ...

PHOTO OF THE DAY: MISS FLOWER GIRL

I thought this kind of posture has gone into extinction. I've seen a lot of them but I wasn't too quick to judge the 'photographees' (poetic licence please). For example snapping pictures in the studio with lion teddybears, jumping, placing your hands on another person's shoulder, sleeping on the floor etc those were ignorant times. Nowadays ladies turn to their cars/ toilets for lovely picture backgrounds but this one seriously beats me. What's the attraction? The greenness or the flower itself? Common, this flower isn't The Gold of Kinabalu Orchid or other expensive flowers in the world, these are just regular ones people urinate or spit on. Issokay sister, maybe I'm not seeing what you're seeing. You're fine sha and your hair is okay but the 'flower-holding' is itching...

PHOTO OF THE DAY: BEST WEDDING CONVOY

I'm seriously digging this concept.lol This couple must have been tired of cars (jeeps, limos, motorcycles) that they opted for something big and unique. But the standing up is what I don't think I can do. I understand you want to flaunt the 'newest couple in town' thing to the world but punishing my legs. Nah! But another thing is people won't see you if you sit down, so endure the small suffering. (But they aint complaining sef) But how many caterpillars would follow the first one? The traffic will definitely 'unsmile' that...

PHOTOS: EMEKA IKE’S FOUR YEAR-OLD SON PULLS DRIVING STUNT

Although this is a very belated gist, I just had to post the story immediately I got the pictures. This happened about 3 weeks ago, April 11 to be precise, at Magodo phase 1 (between Magodo&Shangisha). May God save me from gossip.lol Incase you're wondering what happened here; Emeka Ike's wife drove into a supermarket, left her (about) 4 years old son in the car and went to purchase some things, by the time she returned, the son had pulled a Jean Claude Van Damme. He turned the key in the ignition and the car moved eventually damaging another car parked along the road. I can imagine the shock on her face by the time she returned and saw the scenario….especially the damage done to the car. Thank God nothing happened to the little boy sha. Little children can like to 'experiment' they can like to drive you mad train you for hypertension. The shout of 'Leave it', 'Don't touch that thing' and other phrases is another course on its...

D’BANJ FINALLY BREAKS THE ICE ON FEUD WITH DON JAZZY, MO”HITS.

On the feud between D’banj and Don Jazzy which popped up few months ago, I clearly mentioned that there was much more to what people read over the internet (most especially twitter) or in the papers. In this first ever interview (after the brouhaha) with renowned Journalist, Kunle Ayeni, the charismatic musician bears his mind on the controversial topic ‘I’m a risk taker’, he says. ‘Life is all about risks. But you must never endanger yourself. I don’t endanger myself, which is why, even though I’m here, I’m still in Nigeria all the time, performing’. He believes his deal with Kanye West was a case of ‘preparation meets opportunity’. ‘I pulled up with my entourage at the Emirates first class lounge in Dubai. We were returning from Scott Tommey’s birthday. I came down with Bankuli, my P.A. Chuchu, and my business manager Chidi. My entourage was large and I was looking fly. One of the hostesses ran to me with a Kanye West placard. I said I’m not Kanye o – then I told my guys ‘Kanye is around so no dulling.’ Chuchu and Bankuli spotted Kanye walking in to check in. They went to him and he said we could come over’. ‘As they came, I had my iPad with me, and my headphones. Kanye said ‘I like your T-shirt’. I wore a Zara T-shirt and a D&G...

NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS, MERCY JOHNSON GOES BALLISTIC ON SET

Easy does it madam! According to Daily Independent newspapers, A-list actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie few weeks ago caused a scene on the set of a new movie 'In the mind' in Asaba. But someone provoked her! Yeah, one seemingly smart make-up artist. According to the source, the super talented actress was in the heat of a romantic scene when this lady (you sef what were you thinking?lol) brought out her phone to take some shots. Obviously annoyed by her action, she jumped off set, slapped her, seized the phone and smashed it. "This is how it all begins, before you know it, they will start writing lies about me in the press". Was all she uttered. (From me to the make up artiste) have you seen what you've caused now? And she agreed to continue on the condition that the girl be sent off☹. Anyways, learnt the poor soul has been begging 'them to tell her' to replace the BB! Even if na CC, losing even a Turaya 'just like that' can be very painful. Something you never planned. (No one plans losing a phone...
