This is really embarrassing…little wonder why the yoruba movie industry is not moving forward like Nollywood #JustSaying.
Sunday at Adigbe in Abeokuta, Popular actor Odunlade Adekola and his
team including Madam Saje (Fausat Balogun), Afeez Owo and others lodged in at a hotel,
Hcord (not too far from one of the Moshood Abiola polytechnic hostels), to shoot a movie – however a fight ensued between the crew and the
students of MAPOLY!
My source exclusively told me that everywhere was calm until the movie shoot began – the crew’s generator was “allegedly” disturbing the peace of the neighbourhood!
in the hostel stepped out to appeal to the actor to switch off their
noisy Generator which was disturbing them. (They were trying to study
for their exams for the next morning).
However, instead of listening to them, Odunlade who felt insulted said

beating him….they left him with scars and continued with their movie
shoot. This is really really bad, a whole actor stooping so low as to do that…
The civil defendant has since reported the issue to the police custody and the case is presently being looked into!
