The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has called on Yoruba film producers to “produce more historical films that teach useful lessons about our language, values and culture.”
Oba Adetunji gave this advice at his Popoyemoja, Ibadan palace, while welcoming Eleni Film Company, led by Abiodun Latinwo Eleni.
The monarch, who is also a doyen of the entertainment industry, noted that “there are sufficient lessons in our history for film producers to use to teach the present and future generations.”
According to him, despite the economic challenges facing the country, people still watch movies, adding that only quality films and movies would survive the test of time.
The first class monarch stated his readiness to support good works of art.
Earlier, the company’s Chief Executive had informed Olubadan that historical films are best for the society at a time like this, urging the Olubadan to assist them in realising their dreams.
