Gbemisola Momoh - Lagos
Abiodun Jimoh, the popular producer of TV Series - Kilanta has eventually carted home the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) 2016 for the best indigenous Yoruba movie/series via Binta Ofege alongside his protégée Olajumoke Odetola who co-produced the flick.
The other nominated productions in the category which included Victims by Mercy Aigbe-Gentry which incidentally was written by Abiodun Jimoh, nearly put Binta Ofege in a no chance situation. However, when Veteran thespians, Lanre Hassan and Jide Kosoko announced the winners, Abiodun Jimoh who has been producing Kilanta for several years was officially inducted into the class of the best of the best in Nollywood alongside Olajumoke Odetola.
In a brief interview with Kingsley Momoh on phone, Jimoh said he was lost for words and would properly respond after the after party where he was savouring the beginning of the new phase of his career and life.
Binta Ofege features Femi Adebayo, Joseph Benjamin, Francis Onwochei and Ireti Osayemi among other stars. Movie pundits describe the movie as one that exhibits the potency of the new generation of Nigerian movie producers, particularly of the Yoruba genre. Binta Ofege is centered on Binta (Jumoke Odetola) a con artiste who marries (Ligali) Femi Adebayo; a trickster which further enlarges their business empire. The movie takes you on a ride of hilarious exploits and con activities.
