June 4th, 2016 – Kemi Afolabi Talks About Modorisa, 1000 All-Female Cast Nollywood Yoruba Movie
It is a historical film that has to do with our cultural heritage. It teaches people to stay true to our culture.
In recent times, we’ve seen that in Nigeria, most of our young ones are not very welcoming of our culture. They are not proud of our culture. We are trying to teach them that we have a beautiful culture and that they should stay true to it. We are teaching people how beautiful our culture is.
‘M’odorisa’ is about a particular character in the script who became the ruler and had to live out the adage that what a man can do, a woman can do better. It’s got a lot of intrigues in it, and fans out there have got a lot to learn about African history, culture and other beautiful stuffs. Apart from the underlying messages,
I plan to tell people to stay true to their culture. They don’t have to look extraordinary to prove a point. Some people are even ashamed to identify with where they are from. We are trying to encourage them to be true to themselves.
