"The Only Solution For Successful Marriage In This Era"-Filmmaker,Gbolahan Adetayo


Saying that popular entertainment journalist, Gbolahan Adetayo, who was the Yoruba Movie Columnist for City People Magazine and Celeb Publicist has extended his chain of businesses recently after he shot his debut movie titled "Aala Ife" meaning "Boundary of Love" is like stating the obvious.


The Ipara Remo, Ogun State-born pen pusher, officially joined the industry as a movie producer when he shot the movie in November 2nd 2017.


The latest gist now  that, the multi-talented dude has decided to take the movie to cinema.


We gathered that come April 1st and 2nd 2017, which are Easter Sunday and Monday, Aala Ife will be shown at the National Theater, Iganmu, Lagos. 


The first view will come up by 12noon, followed by 3pm and 9pm of the two days.


If you must know, Aala Ife is a story of a young man who so much loved and shows special regards for his mum. Just as he loves his wife, he also shows much love to his mother who suffered partial stroke. Unknowing to him, his wife was not in support of his display of affections to his mother. He went on a business trip and before he returned, the unexpected occurred in the family. Aala Ife is a movie to watch for the single men and women, as well as the  married couples, especially those in troubled relationships/marriages. This movie actually opens your sight to the type of wife or husband to marry before you accept the proposal.


"I don't want to sound like a prophet of doom, but many of we young people of this generation don't understand what marriage is all about. We love the idea of marriage but we are truly not ready for the journey. It's scary, the marriage institution in Nigeria is now built on faulty foundation and more marriages are packing up in just a few weeks of wedding than ever. The only solution to a happy marriage in this generation is to go back to our parents and ask them how they were able to do it successfully. Unfortunately, many youths, particularly the female will tell you that the marriage ideas of their parents are obsolete and they will rather go with the modern trend, which is where the problem begins. All the intrigues are treated in the movie, Aala Ife", Says Gbolahan Adetayo.


The flick, written and produced by Gbolahan Adetayo and Directed by Okiki Afolayan, features stars like Femi Adebayo, Liz Da Silver, Jumoke George, Ladi Folarin, Ayonimofe Onibiyo, Abolanle Abdusalam, Kudi Salau, Tamilore Ojo Martins, Femi Fabunmi, Oluwatoyin Oki, Tope Saint, Adenike Iwalewa Amusa and more.

Nigerian Malls & Cinemas Ooze Offensive Odour & Heat During Festivities—Event Expert, Atagamen


Nigeria event organiser, Izokpu Atagamen, has lamented that Easter and indeed most celebrations in Nigeria are not as exciting and fun as in the past.


Speaking to newsmen in Lagos about the forth-coming much anticipated beach concert, "Turn Up With DJ Neptune" on April 7th, the CEO of Gray Tiger Entertainment expresses regret that unlike in the 90s when most Easter celebrations saw revellers hanging out in exciting places like conservation centers, beaches and parks, many now celebrate their easter at home watching other people's activities on social media.


"It is regrettable that many of the young people of nowadays may never know the beauty and real fun of Easter. While we were growing up Easters were incomplete without some outdoor activities. Parks and beaches were the ultimate hangouts not only during Easter but Christmas and other festivities. It is always the best feelings ever, with the fresh feel and sound of nature...and enough space to play around with your friends, loved ones and lovers. But that has drastically reduced. People are either just staying at home and watching pictures on social media, except for a few who manage to go to some of the few cinemas and shopping malls around that are usually very jam-packed and hot during festivities due to overcrowding. Have you ever been to those cinema/malls during festivities and experience the  odour and heat oozing out? Maybe it is the way those places are constructed. Nothing surpasses the cool, fresh breeze of the sea side", Mr. Atagamen expresses.


Speaking further, the event expert revealed that most Nigerians don't know that the beaches and parks are still beautiful places to catch fun as government has been trying its best to make them more appealing.


"Contrary to the belief that many of these beaches and parks are no longer fun to be in terms of infrastructures, it may  interest you that those places are still very much alive especially with government regularly paying attention to revamping them. The Lagos state government for instance has been paying attention to parks and beaches in Lagos, asides the many conservation centers and private beaches." Atagamen said.


He speaks further about the Beach Concert coming up on April 7th, tagged "Turn Up With DJ Neptune", according to Atagamen whose company has been part of organising several top events in the past including Nigerian Music Video Awards(NMVA), the concert is a beach rave controlled by just one DJ, Nigeria's internationally celebrated Disc Jockey, DJ Neptune.

The event will see performances from several artistes, both popular and upcoming ones and it will include electrifying dance performances, endless dance and give-aways, as the show is sponsored by Chelsea Dry Gin.

Atagamen urges everybody to come out and experience real fun again under a strict and guaranteed security controlled beach atmosphere.
