Nollywood producer, Yemi Amodu has disclosed that he had plans of letting popular actress, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde bathe under the waterfalls bare, without clothes on during the production of his newly yet-to-be-released movie, ‘Shadow Parties’.
Shadow Parties is a flick about a communal clash that snowballs into a national quagmire, throwing up suspicion, hatred, killings, arson, kidnapping and other vices.
In the cast of the engaging film are Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Segun Arinze, Yemi Black, Sola Shobowale, Jibola Dabo, Toyin Abraham and others.
In an interview with Phenomenal, Yemi Amodi said;
“Most of our films lack originality. Omotola is the one who was supposed to bathe naked under the waterfalls, but we couldn’t really achieve that.”
Asked about the cost of featuring Omotola in the movie, he said: ““One thing is sure: if you have the right cast, you have a good film. Because I have an important message to pass, I have to go for actors that people will like to watch, those they can easily connect to and listen to. I, for instance, see Omotola as an ambassador of peace. So, if I am writing about peace, it is sensible for me to think in her direction. I also need someone who would be able to interpret the role well. When she is abducted, she should be able to tell her abductors some truth.”
