Nollywood is doing us proud!
On Saturday, September 10, EbonyLife Studios and Netflix’s “Elesin Oba, The King’s Horseman” premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and executive producer Mo Abudu, as well as the lead cast Odunlade Adekola, Omowunmi Dada, and Deyemi Okanlawon, were on there to represent in style.
The film, directed by Biyi Bandele, is based on Wole Soyinka‘s 1975 screenplay titled “Death and the King’s Horsemen.” Based on true events, the colonial rulers halted a Yoruba King’s horseman from committing ceremonial suicide.
The upcoming film also stars Shaffy Bello as Iyaloja, Olawale Oloforoo (Brymo), and veteran actors Jide Kosoko and Kevin Ushi, with guest appearances by Nollywood legends Taiwo Ajai-Lycett and Ajoke Silva.
