I spent N52 million shooting two versions of my new movie on boko Haram – ACTOR OLAIYA IGWE


Popular actor, Ebun Olaiya

popularly called ‘Igwe’ and fondly

described as ‘Mr One Year, One

Film’ has disclosed exclusively to

E24-7 MAGAZINE that he spent

six years, and N52m, working with

about 2,000 actors to produce his

new movie, “Mystery of Unity”

“Aditu Isokan,”

The veteran thespian who is

currently on the set of Tunde

Kelani’s adaptation of Femi

Osofisan’s “Yeepa Solarin Nbo” to

“Yeepa” revealed that though he

didn’t have the menace of the

deadly Boko Haram sect in mind

when shooting the movie, many of

the messages in the film are

playing out in the terrorists’

murderous activities.

According to him, “I did not

produce the film because of the

Boko Haram issue, but everything I

put in the film is already playing

out with Boko Haram, so maybe I

was chosen by God to produce a

film to educate the country; I thank

God for the inspiration.”

Speaking further about the movie

which was released on Monday,

September 8th, 2014, he stated,

“I’ve been making a movie since

2008, and by the grace of God, it

would be released on Monday,

September 8th, 2014. It is titled,

“Mystery of Unity,” or “Aditu

Isokan” and I spent about N52

million shooting two versions of it:

one in English, and the other in

Yoruba…I worked with actors like

Dejumo Lewis, Yomi Obileye and

about two thousand others.”

Explaining the reason why he’s

called ‘Mr One Year, One Film,’

Olaiya quipped, “People do call me

‘Mr One Year, One Film,’ and it

has become a tradition for me

personally. I believe that a film is

an intellectual property that is

bigger than even the owner. If I die

today, I believe that my films

would be everlasting objects that

would live on after me, and I don’t

believe in producing too much of


However, you should also consider

the economic situation of the

country before doing anything. The

economy has affected all the

sectors of the country, and our fans

and viewers need to have money

before they can buy our films, so

we have to consider them too, but I

promise I won’t disappoint my

fans,” he enthused.
