Ace singer, Abolore Adegbola Akande, aka 9ice, is about to make a foray into Nollywood, following his acceptance to play a lead role in a new Yoruba movie titled “Jejere’.
The ‘Gongo Aso’ singer, who is famed for his rich musical lyrics in Yoruba language, in an interview with NET expressed his first experience in the make-believe world, saying ‘being the first time on set, I have to act, cry when nothing is actually wrong with me, laugh when nothing is really funny. I also have to depict this character in the presence of others.”
“It is a privilege to be part of ‘Jejere’ and I look forward to the premiere” he said.
When asked if he would like to take on acting as a new career, “if the pay is right with good content and the standard is on point, why not” he replied
The ‘Jejere’ movie which deals with issues plaguing the country, such as insecurity issue, corruption, mass unemployment, robbery and kidnapping and menace of bad leadership, proffers the way forward.
The film is produced and will be released by Sim Line International, (formerly Front Row Productions), owned by Nollywood actress, Laide Bakare.
According to Laide Bakare, “the movie is about an African hero that saved his environment.”
Other actors in the movie include Emeka Ike, Oby Alex O, Fathia Balogun, Akin Lewis, Ebun Oloyede, and Bakare herself.
