Gone are the days when five of ten Yoruba movies released will have Ibadan based star actor,Muyiwa Ademola,on the poster and jackets of the movies.Things seem to be quieting on the side of this self made star actor who years back came into the industry as a make-up artist.
We even learnt that at his very beginning in the industry Muyiwa was alleged to be slapped by star actress Bukky Wright for not applying very well the make-up on her face.But that was in the past as Muyiwa through his own movies written and produced by him became a hot item in the industry.
When no one believed in him,Muyiwa believed in himself and with God on his side he was able to produce chart bursting and thought provoking movies that make viewers meditate on their being.
His movies are always philosophical and before anyone knew it,he became a big movie producer.He also gradually added movie directing and was good that he became the choice movie director in Ibadan,his base.
His school of drama too also became the choice of many and gradually his students started producing movies which he gets to direct and also play the lead.Not only that,other movie producers were always asking for him in their movies and his main marketer,Epsalum also made sure that any movie coming out from his stable has Muyiwa playing a major role and at the same time coordinating the production.
But recently,things seem to have changed for this actor,producer,director and make-up act as he is no longer the choice face on posters and jackets of movies.These days if he is lucky,you might see his face squeezed inside a poster very distantly.
His fans are asking if Muyiwa Ademola is relenting on his efforts or that his time is gradually going?
Among the movies produced by Muyiwa Ademola are Ogo Osupa,Ori,Ile,Alapadupe,Jide Jamal(JJ) among others.
