Odunlade Adekola And Bolanle Ninalowo In Supremacy Battle As Later Become Most Sought After Actor In Yoruba Movie Industry

There is tension among producers in the Nollywood  Yoruba movie industry as the supremacy battle between top actors Ninalowo and Odunlade deepens.

Since good looking actor Bolanle Ninalowo joined the leadership race, it seems he is gradually stealing the show from Odunlade.

The actor who relocated to Nigeria from his base in the US years ago has endeared himself to movie lovers through his perfect role interpretation prowess.

Ninalowo who was born into the influential Ninalowo family in Lagos state studied Accounting and Marketing in the states before returning home to pursue his acting career 15 years later.

Before venturing into acting, he had a stint with the corporate world as a Banker and Accountant. In the states, he worked with Bank One and General Growth Properties, Chicago and in in Nigeria, with Guaranty Trust Bank.

His first movie appearance was in 2010, in his first production titled ‘Rebirth’, which he later premiered in America.

Since then, he has been the toast of movie producers in the industry and has been moving from one movie location to another in both the English and Yoruba speaking parts of Nollywood.

Bolanle was first noticed in Yoruba movie productions, following his appearance in one of star actress, Tayo Sobola’s movies, and has rose to became a force to reckon with in the industry.

He is now the most sought-after actor in the Yoruba movie industry at the moment.

Findings revealed that, this actor is gifted with 3 qualities which is making many Yoruba movie producers go for him rather than the regular faces in the industry.

His Swags, Diction and good look have helped him to stand out in the industry.

Despite the fact that Ninalowo’s appearance fee is very expensive, producers are still rushing to him to appear in their jobs.

He earns the same amount with stars before him like Odunlade Adekola, but producers don’t mind because, Bolanle’s face is said to attract more viewers online than any other actor in the movie industry.

    They are both good and handsome. I love Odunlade more because of his comic skill.
    Not a fan of Ninalowo. I’;m really uncomfortable with his gay look.
    D fact that he left his wife and kids doesnt’ speak well either. Odunlade is more responsible and homey.

    Typical naija judgemental tendencies will soon surface and jealousy will ensue.To me they are good actors.

    Both are definitely good in interpreting roles and of course good looking. But each have certain uniqueness, Odunlade is good in comical roles and is mor eflexible in yoruba roles while Ninalowo is a crossover actor.

    You must be a derp to think they are equal, Odunlade had anchored so many fantastic role while Nina is not. Nina’s muscles appeal to ladies more and therefore, producers must feature him to make more money. Go back and watch his parts in any movie, his Yoruba doesn’t flow easily,it is memorized: inflexibility makes him look amateur.

    They are both good actors,but odunlade is better than ninolowo.With odun lade in a movie,one will never feel bored. Odunlade is alwaysfull of life ,even in english movies,he will make you to laugh away your sorrow.To cap it all,looking at their marital life ,odunlade is one of the responsible young guy in the movie industry.most of the young guys in the movie industry could not keep their marriages. In conclusion the tatoo on ninalowo and his broken marriage make him irresponsible. Being a public figure,you must be a good role model and maintain positive integrity before people. Both of them are incomparable and undebateable.The difference is quite glaring.

    Its funny seeing people comparing a flat character like Ninalowo to Odunlade,which i found undebateable.Odunlade still remain the man,compared to non in the yoruba industry,who fits in any required role.For Richard mofe Damijo to invite Odunlade to work wit him means something,he is not even a match to Ibrahim chatta,Femi Adebayo,Yomi Fash lanso etc.A public figure must be of high standard,pedigree nd moral influence;which is not featured in Ninalowo lifestyle.

    This is the 1st time I will hear about an actor called ninalowo. You journalists always cause enmity. Is the movie industry not wide enough to accommodate actors and demonstrate their acting prowess? You compared odunlade with femi adebayo, now ninalowo again. If Odunlade is not the best, you wouldn’t have been comparing him with other actors.

    When you compare actors and actresses, you need to compare them based on their acting skills. All of them are not on the same pedestal. The way we all judge the acting capacity of these actors is quite different from one another. In Yoruba movie, I think that guy Ibrahim Chatta is a young leading actor who knows how to interpret Epic movie, Traditional movie, Contemporary movie and Modern movie. When I watched some his movies, I look into the depth of those movies to determine who act best. Chatta may not find himself in the first, second or third in English movie but in yoruba sector this guy is far better than Odunlade, Femi Adebayo and co. Ibrahim Chatta will play a role herbalist, Doctor, Lawyer, Conman, Pastor, Imam and interprets them perfectly.

    I based my judgement on merit not on good looking or whose handsome most. Also any would be actor must be versatile and ready to play well role given to him.

    Contrarily, If you are looking for an Actor who can interpret both English and Yoruba movies, I will pick Ninalowo. I have seen that acting prowess in him. Although his Yoruba may not be fluent like his other colleagues but he is an actor and he can act well. Many English movie producers will pick Ninalowo before Odunlade. Odunlade is a good actor but recently because he’s been making big money and most producers are demanding for him so much has impaired his ability to perform the way he suppose to perform. I gave him credit based on his past performance.
