Odunlade Adekola

The allegation did not go down well with many of Odunlade’s fans and colleagues. This is because he’s one man, who is highly loved and respected in the industry. Many of his fans even attacked the blogger online, while many said no matter what the blogger says about him, it would not stop them from loving him, some have said the Odunlade Adekola, they know does not mix business with pleasure. Many Nollywood stars also threw their weight behind what they call Odunlade Adekola’s impeccable character.

The allegation did not go down well with the star actor who did a video clip to debunk the rumour and challenged every female mentioned by the blogger including those who have graduated from his school of acting, OAFP or those who are still under him to comment under his post for the whole world to read if he had ever asked any one of them for Sex before giving them roles.

A couple of them who graduated from Odunlade Adekola Film Productions School and a few who are still with him spoke to City People. Below is what they have to say about their boss and how he has impacted them both in their careers and lives.

He actually gave me leverage in the industry. My experience at his acting school helped me so much because it transformed me from a novice to a celebrated professional. Now, that I am in the mainstream, I am determined to maintain my dignity in the industry.

I can confidently say that he gives us (students of his film school) the leverage to explore our talents. He protects and guides us through the hurdles in the industry. I can boldly say that all the students, especially the females, are doing well in the industry because of his ability to inculcate knowledge while adhering to professional ethics.

He never gives room for any of his students to be harassed or sexually embarrassed by colleagues.

Omotola Odunsi is one of the fastest-rising actresses in the industry. Even though she has graduated from Odunlade Adekola Film Production Academy, yet she’s still with him, learning more. She is one of the popular faces you see in his award-winning series Saamu Alajo.

We asked her how her boss, Odunlade Adekola has made an impact on her career…

When I was in 200 level or thereabout in the university, I met with Lateef Adedimeji on campus. Back then, he had an acting troupe, so I joined it. We usually engaged in stage dramas and other entertainment activities. I recall that we used to go to other universities for drama presentations. However, after some time, I had to stop. Fast forward to 2018, I joined Odunlade Adekola Films Production. I attended an audition organized by the platform and I was among the lucky ones who were chosen. My boss, Ambassador Odunlade Adekola, is a nice man, a God-fearing man worth being emulated. He’s a teacher. Joining Odunlade Adekola Production was a prayer answered for me because I prayed and fasted about it before I joined. It’s highly spiritual for me to get in touch with my boss. I do call him daddy not just because he’s my boss, but the grace of God upon his life, which I always I identify with and respect.

Odunlade Adekola is a man who accommodates people. He accommodates talents. He’s a man who will encourage you to bring out the best in you. I’ve never met him doing rubbish because he’s a disciplinarian. The orientation many of us have in this industry today came from what he inculcated in us. My boss is so awesome and I’m proud to say that I’m one of his mentees. There was a day I said to myself that I wanted to leave the industry because of the many advances I was getting from men. He said to me “Omotola, as your boss, have I ever asked you out or asked you for sex? I said ‘No’ sir, then he said I should never mind all those men making such advances and face my career. So, Ambassador Odunlade is a true leader, he’s a good man. And I always pray to make him proud one day and tell the whole world about him.
