Adesoji: Aregbesola’s biopic hits cinema
IT was a most exciting moment last Thursday when Adesoji, a movie that chronicles the grass-to-grace story of Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, Governor of the State of Osun, was premiered in Ilesa, Osun State, amidst fanfare.
Adesoji, which has been described as inspiring, stars notable Yoruba actors like Lere Paimo, Kareem Adepoju, Bukky Wright, Adewale Elesho, Alhaji Ade Adenrele and Bola Obot, among others.
The director of the movie, Akin Olu-Philips, said viewers would be amazed with what he described as the untold stories about Aregbosola’s birth, his revolt against cheating while in the primary school, life as a bachelor and how he met his wife, among others.
“This motion picture is an attempt to share with the general public a compacted presentation of some of the life experiences that formed the person of Ogbeni. I believe it will guide the public to have a better understanding of his person and be inspired thereby.”
Also, the executive producer, Mr. Razaaque Animashaun, said: “ It is intended to be a motivating material as it highlights Ogbeni’s struggles to claim back his mandate for three-and-half years, his achievements in the last three years in the State of Osun and, most importantly, to show that our country can actually produce such a visionary leader.”
