What I will tell President Tinubu about Nollywood – Imade Osawaru

By Ayo Onikoyi

Nollywood actress, producer and Chief Executive Officer of Mademonic Entertainment Production, Imade Osawaru has voiced out what she wants President Bola Tinubu to do for the movie industry.

The voluptuous actress made her mind known in a chat with Potpourri when asked what she would ask of the President in an event she gets up close and personal with the number one citizen.

She said, “I’d advise him to build or support the building of a Film Village in the six geo-political zones in Nigeria. Each village will have structures that speak of the culture of the zone. So, if I’m in Lagos, for instance, and I have a script that needs Hausa culture to be interpreted, I can easily go to a Film Village in any geopolitical zone in the North and get my film shot. I know it’s a lot of money to build six Film Villages, so I’d advise that he builds one, and have a future vision for Nigeria to have 6 film villages. Incoming administration could run with the vision. Hopefully.

Imade who has made her mark in the movie industry being part of some big projects asserts that acting is a very professional job that requires impeccable professionalism. She advises actors to take the job seriously while highlighting some areas of the job that need special attention.

“Learning dialogues is fundamental for actors. A good actor must have a strong memory. It will help you maximize your efficiency. Good actors are well-informed and knowledgeable. So, it is important to read up and get information on all aspects of life and the issues happening around you and around the world.

“Acting is a professional career that requires a lot of patience and hard work. Good actors are dedicated and diligent workers. Good actors are highly imaginative, they are intelligent. They have confidence on and off set, and they know how to manage and market themselves,” she said.

Imade Osawaru has featured in the series “King of Kings”, “The Gate Man”. And her company’s first feature movie was “Fatal Attraction”. Aside from movies and series from other producers, she has some TV series from her production company. Her latest works are movies, Indecisiveness, Paulo the Masseur and many skits flooding the social media.
