How Whatzap Gist Inspired: Bade …The Reunion -Executive Producer – OLUROTIMI OMOTUNWASE




Olurotimi Omotunwase is the Executive producer of the trending movie, ”Bade..the return”.

In this brief encounter, the movie maker of note makes some revelations about Bade and his own sojourn in the movie world. Excerpts:

Q: kindly tell us about yourself and your sojourn into the entertainment world

A: My name is Rotimi Omotunwase, and I am a father of two lovely daughters, an art enthusiast, and a complete gentleman.

Despite my background in the IT industry, I have always had a passion for movies since I was a child. In 2009, when I decided to do something other than IT, I found myself setting up a digital agency business called Fusionplus TV, which was responsible for launching the first LIVE STREAM TV channel in the UK in 2014, with our live studio in Canning Town, Royal Docklands, London. If you must know, we pioneered the red carpet culture in the United Kingdom by interviewing celebrities on red carpets. I recently decided to return to school, the plan was to study law, but because of the passion for the industry, I ended up settling for media production and communications. Last year, I fell back in love with the entertainment industry and decided to contact some of my industry friends to see what we could come up with, which eventually gave birth to this incredible film “Bade”.

Q: Talking about ‘Bade…the Reunion”, your new product, tell us about it.

A: As previously stated, I spoke with Femi Bolorunde and Daniel Ademinokan separately one evening, discussing some of our individual contributions to the Nigerian entertainment industry… The love of art that I saw emanating from these people’s hearts prompted me to conclude that it is past time for us to act.

Q: Why this story.

A: I was talking with Femi Bolorunde, about an idea I was trying to incorporate into my OTT website to help movie producers who can’t premiere their films in BIG cinemas use our platform for an Online premiering before releasing the videos, which we do almost every day. I suddenly pursed because I was reading something that had occurred in one of the WhatsApp groups to which I belong. When I told him what had happened and what had caused the sudden distraction, he immediately said that a similar thing had happened to one of his friend, and I suggested that we make a movie about it… And here we’re today.

Q: Is the movie out in the market?

A: It will first be available on Fusionplus Online TV on December 1-5, 2021. Which you can, of course, you can watch on any of your devices, including mobile, tablet, and PC.Question:

Q: Who are those that featured in the movie?

A: So many talented individuals, such as, Rykado Agbor, Segun Arinze, Dayo Amusa, Niyi Raphael and many more. It’s an assemblage of good actors that fits the characters naturally. Ably produced and directed by my good friend, Olufemi Bolorunde.

Q: Let’s talk about Fusionplus TV, what is it all about?

A: What are we about? Hmmmm! We are a basically an Over The Top (OTT) platform gradually finding our feet in the streaming industry again with the advent of Netflix and Amazon Prime. Our aim is to provide live and on-demand online video solutions as well as Pay Per View services for Individuals, Agencies, Corporates, Events and Sports. Our vision is to provide an environment where bright, daring, energetic and creative people, enjoy working together to develop world class TV and other media products.
Today, our mission is the same as when we started out because we are guided by a singular focus: “To help creative professionals get their stories out of their heads and onto screens in ways that just weren’t possible a few years ago”.

Dayo Kujore’s Daughter Exposes Gov’ Dapo Abiodun …”I Saw My Father’s Death Coming”



Call it the vituperations of a bereaved daughter, you won’t be far from the truth, because the daughter of Late Juju Crooner, Wonder Dayo Kujore who passed on some days ago, Ayinke Dayo Kujore is very angry.
She is angry at the Ogun state Governor, Dapo Abiodun whom she said has not considered it of necessity to condole with the family since the death of the popular and illustrious son of Ogun State and Nigeria.
Ayinke was with her father when he breathed his last, but was the death a surprise to her? May be not. Because according to the late entertainer’s daughter, she saw her father’s death coming.
In this encounter with ThePageNews, Ayinke explained it all:
I was always around with my father. We were so close and i related closely with him. My father was actually a loving, accommodating and a disciplinarian
Getting to see him dying even while in the hospital was an event with mixed feeling….one, I’m happy that, i was on ground when he breathed his last….and I thank God that he didn’t bury any of his children. Its not a good thing for parents to witness the death of their children in our culture.
But then, seeing my father die was not something pleasant at all. You know that, no matter how old our parents are, i believe, no one would be happy seeing his father or mother transiting to a journey of no return. I never thought, my father will die so soon. We shared many things. He had plans for himself and the entire family for the year 2022.. It was not funny at all. As i speak with you now, its still like hallucination or perhaps day dreaming.
I still feel he is asleep and would soon wake up to life. Honestly, I cant imagine referring to my adorable father in the past tense now. So sad, i have indeed lost a good friend, my gist mate
My relationship with my Dad was so cool. Very very cordial. My dad, confided so much in me. Also seeing me becoming more successful in the entertainment industries is another thing that gives my Dad lots of joy and happiness. I saw him as a friend, not as father at times.. sometimes, when there was need for him to act as a father in most of my dealings or activities, he never hesitated and he didn’t spare anyone trying to mess up around me, when it’was time to merry or throw banters, he was always there as well.
I would miss many things about him. Is it the attention, is it the affection, is it the love, is it the quality advice that you can never get anywhere, except from a loving father like him.. My father was so compassionate in our welfare and education. He instilled in us decency, integrity , decorum and ability to always find capacity to handle whatever comes our ways as children.
Burial Plans….
 Being an entertainer himself, we are planning to give him a befitting celebration of life at a date that would be announced later, meanwhile, we are planning to bury him in Robiyan town, Ifo Local govt of Ogun State, on January 28th to 30th, though, just like i said earlier, a better day for the celebration of life would be picked later.
I will seize this opportunity to register my displeasure at our governments because they don’t appreciate and value the talent of their citizens. In advanced Countries, they see their stars as idol or lesser gods and they treat them with values, and respect even in death, but Nigeria is different. Since the death of my father, till now that I am speaking with you, no condolence letter from either Federal or state government. My father hailed from Ogun State and he used his music to display the rich cultures of Nigeria and Ogun State in particular to the entire World. His love for his country and state knew no bound, but sad that Governor of Ogun State, His Excellency, Dapo Abiodun has not considered it fit and necessary to write and sympathize with us, the children. Why, why why…?
I remember when my father traveled abroad for a concert, and he was interviewed by international Journalists, funnily, he responded to the questions in Egba, Abeokuta language. You can see the extent of his love for his country and state.
Saw His Death Coming……
I saw the death coming. I actually dreamt about a month before that he died. I wept in the dream and I prayed for a reversal but i never knew that it would certainly come to pass.
But did he have unfulfilled wishes?
”Yes, he had… He is supposed to go on three months musical tours of United States of America, via Toykay Investment & Music Promotion. All the arrangements have done and sealed. He also confided in me that, he would use the proceeds of the musical tours to build Church for God and handover it to an undisclosed Pentecostal church. He had good and quality relationships with God”.
Marriage Ceremony….
It was reported that he got married recently. Was that something you were in support of.
”Sure. It was not an hidden thing. It was an elaborate one. Of course, trust a successful and high profile musician like my Dad, wives were never an issue. He cared for his home.
