You have produced seventeen movies, when will you produce a Yoruba movie?
I have it in mind; because I am an executive producer, I really need to be sure I’m going to get my money back. I do not really know how their market works, and I have actually spoken to the platform I sell my own movies to, on how much they buy Yoruba movies plus some other information. So if I get the proper network, I will do it. I actually have a script I’m supposed to do with Ramsey Noah. However, it’s not a full Yoruba film, but it’s a Yoruba setting. I really don’t know how I’m going to do the full one yet because although, I speak Yoruba, it’s not all the time. Yoruba films are amazing, so I’m going to do it when the time comes; my mum actually also wants me to do it.
Normally, when a Yoruba lady delves into the movie industry, she starts from the Yoruba sector before she crosses over, how come your case is peculiar?
At the time when I started acting in 2004, I was in Lagos State University and school was on strike. I was very idle then, even though I did business at the time. So I met my sister’s friend who worked with movie makers then. She took me for an audition where I got a role to play, and at the end of the audition, I decided I was never going to do it again because we had to do it all through the night. From that point, I stopped doing movies up until 2006 when I graduated.
Rukky Sanda produced the new movie Dark which premiered last night to huge positive review by the fans.
