We want people to see how beautiful they all look on traditional attire. The Asoebi will not degrade or reduce the value of the programm in anyway.

Have you had anytime you felt like backing out of Entertainment? What challenges have you had to cope with as a film maker.

Asides the problem of piracy, the last fifteen years has been great. If not for the passion I have for this business I would have dropped a long time ago, because it’s not like one is actually making a huge amount of money from it, but because of the passion and for the fact that I just want to be relevant and just want people (My fans) to keep seeing my work. I’m into entertainment because its my passion and it gives me joy. So anytime I have a bad experience, I just shake it off and move on.

What informs your style?

Basically my mood affects my style. Most of the time it is my mood that determines my mode of dressing. Sometimes I just dress to impress; everyone does that. I dress to stair up news, just get people talking. One thing people should just understand is that the fact that you dress in a particular way does not mean you are promiscuous. I just love to express myself. I know how to use controversy to my advantage. It works for me as a brand, not everyone can handle it.

What Are you working on at the moment

My next job is “Itara Ife”, there has never been anything like that before in the industry. It’s a full length feature film Pantomime. It is a movie with no dialogue, no subtitle, no narration and it is a one hour thirty minutes movie, trust me you will get value for your money when you watch it, we have the likes of Femi Adebayo, myself and other stars in it. That’s my latest work.
