The latest news coming fresh from citypeople is fact that he has just opened a film house in the heart of Opebi.
Speaking to Citypeople Head of TV Sunday Adigun, he said he was inspired to build the film house after seeing the troubles actors go through moving from one location to the other.
“It’s my best friend, Biodun Stephen that inspires me to invest in it. She has something like this as well. A beautiful edifice where you can get many things done without having to move from one place to another. Since I came into the industry, I realised that shooting movie has always been very hectic, moving from different locations, travelling up and down for the actors, especially for the crew.
“I always feel sorry for them, packing up from this place, going to another location then setting up again, it’s a tremendous job they are doing. I saw it for the first time when Biodun Stephen was directing my movie, and I said wow, this is very good, we don’t have to go to different places, shooting everything under one roof. So I decided to do the same.
