Oct 19, 2015 – Muyiwa Ademola: How Charles Olumo Agbako Helped Me To Join Nollywood
In a recent interview, Nollywood actor Muyiwa Ademola alias Authentic briefly narrated how he joined one of the fastest growing entertainment industries in the world.
I remember I was in science class when I was in secondary school, but I have always been arts-inclined. All I think about is creative works. I sketch, I draw and I do all these things without training. I just pick up the piece people have done, then I mimic them. My intention was to write stories and give to movie industry because I saw the stories they wrote and I felt like I could do something.
I remember that the first person I went to meet was Shola Ogunshola (Isho pepper) around 1988 while I was in secondary school and he told me I was too small. Then I left the job again and immediately after secondary school, I started giving my stories to different people in the industry. That was how I got in contact with Charles Olumo (Agbako). Today, the rest is history.
