Actor Odunlade Adekola Should Feel Privileged for Acting Alongside RMD in The Grudge?

It is not every day actors in the Yoruba sphere of Nollywood get to
feature in 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 reverred actor
commands respect anywhere he goes and is indeed a man of many parts; an
Actor, Lawyer, former Commissioner and above all, a family man and grand father..

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.

The insults being meted out on these Yoruba speaking actors is too much mhen.
Even local beings that grew up in the village will start feeling posh once they enter Lagos.
What's special about RMD? MTCHEWWWW.

Sewa Joseph said...

its not a privilege, they are both actors in their own right, regardless of experience. He is very blessed.

SHAKITI BABY said...

RMD should feel priviledge acting with Odunlade..
Odunlade is the real mvp of our time.

Anonymous said...

Very stupid. The Yoruba actors are well respected and patronized in their own genre. So is RMD. No basis for comparison o jare. Odunlade is doing very well and Yoruba's buy their films not plaigiarising it everywhere like the English films. Which make the English actors starve and die of hunger. RMD means nothing to the people who watch Oduns movies.

Mtcheeeew. Odulande is a fantastic actor. The two of them are unique in their own way. There is no way you won't laugh when you watch Odulande. He is one of my favorite Nollywood actors.

what the FUCK? If Odunlade wants to "honor" RMD, that should be his own perogative! Who died and made anyone king over anyone? Stupid people and their ugly souls who always look for means to inflate their EGO.

I heard he can't speak good English and yes he is the best yoruba actor,we need him in asaba movies alongside Kelvin Ikeduba who is making waves in asaba movies too.

What the heck... Pardon my french.
Which kain yeye goosebumps, odun lade aint no child's play when it comes to movies, he knows his onions. Dude isn't just a popular face in yoruba movies, he's a prolific actor. No kind of movie in nigeria is superior than the other. I'm so pissed, if this is pr for the movie it's a stupid one, again excuse my french. If I see it though it's cos of odunlade.

But he is super talented and can interprete any role given to him.Priviledge? I don't think so,he earn it,he worth it.

Stella seriously what kind of statement is this? He should feel privileged...why? He is a big star in his own right! No wonder the majority of the bvs here are tribalistic. Anyway who English speaking nollywood movies epp? The majority of them are boring and unnecessarily long at best! Abeg park well jare.

Fierce of SDK blog said...

I want to watch this movie.

Anonymous said...

Why should Odulade have goose pimples because of Damijo. Damijo was not a lawyer before he started acting. He was just a fine boy who struggled like anyone who is not from a privileged home, dated and married a bigger and older woman, May. He just went to read law recently and was eventually made a commissioner. Abeg, nothing to have goose pimples about. Odulade should also improve himself. Rome was not built in a day!

reemah said...

Why should he? He's a very very good actor and a versatile one at that. People like to make mountains out of molehills. They are both actors and should pool their experiences and individual knowledge of acting to impress viewers. Simple!

Adetutu Babatunde-Edward said...

Odunade is a good actor, he just needs to brush up his english speaking. Why should he have goose bumps? Did RMD have goose bumps when he acted alongside Olu Jacobs for the first time in the 80's?

Rhoda Rex said...

I love dat Yoruba actor die..

My thoughts exactly.. I've heard him drop sentences in English and I'm always like πŸ™†πŸ½πŸ™†πŸ½πŸ™†πŸ½πŸ™†πŸ½ I hope he pulls it off and spare us the excessive H factor.. 😊

Y should he feel priviledged. His RMD paying his bills? That he acts in yoruba movies does not make RMD any better than him. RMD is a star in history own way and Odun is also a star.

Exactly! He should just brush up his spoken English. That's his only flaw as an actor.

Lmao
Odunlade movies only sell across Yorba state E.g ibadan, osun, ogun, ekiti, abekuota, πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ while RMD movies sell nationwide. Every angle of Nigeria. That's 36 states baby. Who knows of Odunlade in the East of North Abeg?

On a lighter note, this Odunlade is in every yorUba poster I see. One time I was always counting every day when I see a poster to know how many he is in so that means he is a big actor in his yorUba movies. Never watched anyone. I can't even speak it after how many years in Lagos. Didn't bother learning. French, English, Spanish and German is OK for me.

Ask yourself, who will sell ur movie more on current form, Odunlade or RMD? Fool!

Anonymous said...

Linda? Guy how e dey do you for body na?

dame sexy said...

Both paid there dues in movie industry,none is superior to one another save for age difference. the problem killing us in Nigeria is our erroneous belief that English language is superior above our various local languages(colonial mentality syndrome or disorder).
Odunlade is highly talented in his field just like RMD. Two of them must be glad of the privilege to work together.As a matter of fact,i believe the producer of the said movie must have lobbied to get Odun Adekola so as to boost their cinema sales.

sisi eko said...

I actually thought the write up was about Odun being compared to RMD, wanted to understand the writers point of view, but alas.

Dude has actually brushed himself up in recent times though. He's a good actor, no doubt. Very captivating. He's always in trouble lol. And I think featuring him in this cross over movie acting will help him further. It's about time they stopped the stereotype in the industry. But I hope he maintains the limelight for a longer time because they usually sink to oblivion after a while when their acting becomes monotonous. RMD should know..

Who would think that we could ever get enough of RMD? but as time goes on, new and better actors emerge to take over the screen from the veterans. So it's a wrap.

OK bye

sisi eko said...

I think Stella's headline is totally different from the content of this writeup.

You just said my mind. Why crap! Mtcheeeeeeeeeeew! Grudge ko googg ni........ stella really you should not have posted this. And even if he can not speak English, na im mother tongue? Who English epp? The guy is making good money and adding value to lives. Someone even said he's a tout in the movie- why is he an actor then? Why do you think they call him the best actor?
We call Caucasians racist when we are worseπŸ˜•

Odun is a veteran and prolific actor who has been able to hold his own forte spanning two decades and hes still on demand while rmd is living on past glory. Goose bumps for what? Abeg

Who wrote this crap? The person is an ass wipe like seriously. Odunlade is a master of his craft take it or leave it. I watch Yoruba movies cos of this man and his superb acting. What 'H' factor? & which one is that he should be having goosebumps cos he's acting alongside RMD? Two seasoned actors doing their thing which one come be this humiliating insulations? I will watch the movie cos of Odunlade and not RMD period! And am sure they included him so as to help sell the movie sef...the guy is pulling serious weight among the masses that will help generate profit for the movie.

Anonymous said...

I am not yoruba but Odun stands out and there is no use comparing him to another as tho GMD was a god. I just started watching Yoruba movies and I love his acting skills and when a man is blessed no one can rub him off his gifts. Though Stella I love you too, keep up the good work.

Ounlade is my number one actor. Whatever anybody say is non of my business, Infact i prefer him than RMD.

I am a northerner and I know odunlade. We even prefer to watch Yoruba movies cos they are decent and can be enjoyed by all family members. Unlike the son called nollywood movies that try to out do themselves in sex scenes

Anonymous said...

Odun is the best actor on current form. He can stand tall as the best in Africa. He has done well feo himself at this young age. He has no controversy surrounding him and looks finer than RMD. So why the evil headline? The writer and Stella are just pure sadists who coincidentally found themselves on the same mission. Its just like saying messi should feel privileged playing alongside ronaldinho. Now is odunlade's time. RMD should enjoy his retirement
