Nollywood fast rising comical act, Funmi Awelewa is taking a giant stride with her plans to release the much awaited movie, OMO IBADAN alongside 3 other blockbusters, NATASHA, GBAKOJE and MORILI BILISI.
OMO IBADAN, a movie about life in West Africa’s biggest city and which enjoys the endorsement of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Saliu Adetunji Aje Ogunguniso 1, was produced in 2016. There has been a lot of publicity around the movie, especially on various social media platforms and this created a huge buzz for the movie which many movie buffs have been longing for it release but the very witty actress have been busy moving from one movie production set to another.
Funmi revealed the main reasons behind the delay, “The major reason I haven’t release the movie is because I don’t have another movie on ground the time I produced it and I want to avoid a situation whereby if I release a project I won’t be able to release another movie in another 8 months or a year. I want people to see more of me in movies and our industry isn’t like that. They want you to use what you have to get what you want. If you’re desperate, you will want to do that because of consistency, but I am not desperate. I worked for my money and make sure I get good stories to produce after OMO IBADAN. If you know the value of what you’re bringing to the table, you won’t be scared of eating alone. I am sure OMO IBADAN movie worth the wait”.
“Now I have 3 other fantastic movies I produced without contacting any marketer or producer which I planned to release immediately after the release of OMO IBADAN, the movies will be release back to back. They are NATASHA, GBAKOJE and MORILI BILISI,” she stated.
Funmi Awelewa is fast becoming an internet sensation with her funny and witty skits she’s posting online, especially on Instagram under the pseudonym, Morili.

Finecoat Paints Boss, Remi Awode celebrates 55th birthday in style, empowers Church members
Chemstar Manufacturing company boss, Apostle Aderemi Emmanuel Awode, owner of Finecoat and Shield Paints, had his 55th birthday soiree last weekend, it was indeed an impressive gathering as friends, family and associate from all walks of life teemed to celebrate a manufacturing giant, a business tycoon, philanthropist par excellence and an icon of hope to many homes.
The most cherished asset of Remi Awode is not his head full of knowledge but his heart full of love, ears open to listen, and hands willing to help, reason many of his staff, friends and associates eulogized his good virtues at the birthday shindig. Many of those that graced the event took the pleasant achiever on memory lane on how he touched their lives in several ways; he’s no doubt, a good man who brings out the good in other people.
For those that feel that being kind hearted to people got them nothing but rejection and hurt, the story of Aderemi Awode is something the young ones should emulate, despite being hurt a few times, he has never allowed such instances to redefine who he truly is. He’s a lover of people whose generosity amazingly knows no colour, creed or religion. Unarguably, this act is one of the factors that led to the success story of Finecoat Paint today.
He’s a strong believer of an aphorism that, “if you are a thoughtful person who does nice things, don’t stop just because the people failed to see the goodness inside you, it’s their ejection or lack of response that is the problem, not yours. Don’t change yourself, they need to change, they need to work on themselves, keep being the wonderful you”.
The strong unapologetic honest and God fearing Awode is one of most kind-hearted people in the world, reason he doled out several millions to empower some members of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement, Divine Blessing Cathedral located at Alagbado area of Lagos where he’s a founding member. Apostle Awode does not only see it as his duty to give out of his abundance, he shares even his tank indicates reserve.
At 55, according to him, is to live his life full of praises of God who has immensely blessed and favoured him. The event was graced by Mr. Toyin Haastrup, Engr. Tunde Akintona, Mr & Mrs. Sam Ajagu, Members of the Galilee Land Development Committee of the C$S Movement Church led by Dr. Bisi Adedire, Mrs. Odeyinka, Founder Fluorescent Group of Schools, Alh. Soladoye, PRO, The Polytechnic Ibadan, Mr. & Mrs. Yemi Sonde, Sp. Apostle John Oyeku, HRH, Oba Oluwalambe Taiwo J.P., The Olojokoro of Ojokoro Land, Pastor Dayo Paseda, Deputy Managing Director, Chemstar Paints Industry (Nig.) Ltd. and many of the alumni of the University of Ibadan who have been friends since then till date.
