One Of the resourceful hands in the fast-rising entertainment industry in Nigeria, Wale Ilebiyi popularly referred to as Omo Allen, the name given to him when he produced the award-wining chart-buster movie, Omo Allen years back, is set to wrestle the giant marketer, Rasaq Abdullahi a.k.a Corporate Picture in the court of law over Bukky Wright’s Omotara Johnson screen-played by Wale Ilebiyi
According to the story, Wale’s directing expertise was consulted by the beautiful Nollywood diva, Bukky Wright to direct the film and Wale, as we were told, threw his artistic prowess in the movie, a thing that was testified to by stakeholders and most of the cast and crew in the movie, though, he was said to have been ably assisted by Muyideen Sasiliu, the director of Jenifa, Corporate, however, has given credit to the latter in all his promotional materials both electronics and print without even a mention of the multi-talented movie director cum producer, Wale.
Alhaji Rasaq’s reason for this action was not really known but people in the know revealed to this authority that it’s all for commercial purpose. “We were all at the location and we all saw the energy the veteran movie director, Wale injected into the movie that has been thumbed up as one of the best movies ever released by Bukky Wright. In fact, Bukky herself gave kudos to him, Wale, when we all finished the work. To my total dismay, Corporate Picture who is supposed to be a mentor to the aspiring marketers now decides to deny him his due credit, this is really unfair.
I watched the promotional materials and Wale’s name was conspicuously missing from the list instead Muyideen Sasiliu’s name was given a mention prominently, though, he was also at the location with us as an assistant director.” One of the crew of the movie informed us anonymously.
All effort to reach Alhaji Abdulahi proved abortive as his number rang endlessly without a response from him. in a chat with one of his friends named Yemi, he opined candidly on the matter and informed this office on behalf of the renowned marketer, Corporate that Bukky Wright, the producer of the movie might have instructed him on the new development on the cast and crew. We shall bring other details to your hearing as soon as we hear from the characters involved in this matter. Merry Xmas to you all .
