September 28, 2016 – Odunlade Adekola’s 2nd English Movie Heads To Cinemas
It is not every day actors in the Yoruba sphere of Nollywood get to feature in the out and out English speaking Nollywood movies. Yoruba leading actor Odunlade Adekola stars in this new movie from Tinsel Star
Funmi Holder titled The Grudge alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) an actor of repute.
The Abeokuta-born Odunlade Adekola who started acting in 1996 is unarguably the biggest actor in the Yoruba sphere of Nollywood as he is the actor with the most appearances in Yoruba movies and has the highest following across different social media platforms.
His face literary sells movies and he is the darling of several film marketers in Idumota and Aba in the South-west and South-east regions of Nigeria respectively. He has won the popular City People Entertainment Awards Best Actor of the Year four times (2009, 2011, 2014 & 2015). In April 2014, he won the Africa Movie Academy Award, having emerged as best actor of the year.
For RMD, he is a man who has gone full circle.
The highly revered actor commands respect anywhere he goes. He is indeed a man of many parts; an
Actor, Lawyer, former Commissioner and above all, a family man.
RMD started acting in the 80s after leaving the university and acted in the popular TV series Ripples. He even made more headlines when he starred in another TV series Checkmate playing the role of Segun Kadiri. He has gone on to star in more than 47 movies. He also headlines the popular TV
sitcom now showing on cable TV titled Hush.
Many movie fans that read about the movie, The Grudge online are of the opinion Odunlade Adekola should have goose bumps as he acts on the same set with RMD and also considering the fact that this is only the second English movie he would be starring in.
The Grudge tells the story of the lives of two lovelorn spouses from separate marriages and a lonely widow intersect as they struggle to deal with a grudge that has festered for so long.
The movie The Grudge which will be in cinemas from October 28 also features another Tinsel Star Iretiola Doyle, Jaiye Kuti, Funmi Holder herself and introducing Ijeoma Aniebo.
