We are not Making Movies These Days, we are Just Making Magic – Yoruba Actress, Toyosi Adesanya
Nigerian actress Toyosi Adesanya condemns the producer movie industry for the kind of movies they are producing these days.
In a recent interview, Toyosi Adesanya said to be candy, the movies produced these days are of less quality unlike the old days movies.
Below are the excerpts.
What can you say about the qualities of movies produced in the last 8 years to what it used to be?
Not to be sentimental, we are not making movies these days, we are just making magic, if you get to my place, you will see movies like “Ti Oluwa Ni Ile, Saworode amongst others, those are great movies.
Even my own movies at times, I don’t watch them. As a producer, you have a vision, but marketers will tell you, the marketing strategy won’t let you do it that way. Can you remember, Abulesowo by Yinka Quadri, Asiri Nla, the soundtracks alone will want to make you watch the movies? I was part of the people that made the soundtracks, but what we have these days is totally different. Someone who lost her husband in a movie will still want to apply to make up to look fine, then the soundtrack is usually totally off, so all these things are affecting our jobs
