"I remember this movie tho the title eludes me. It was a great experiment by @dayoamusa where she put together an almost 100% Ijebu cast for what was to be the first Ijebu Nollywood movie. I was so proud to be a part of this historic project tho am really trying hard to remember if I was allowed to speak plenty Ijebu in the film. Why do they always cast me as one butter, oloyinbo guy sef?! I hardly get to show my Ibile side," he wrote on his Instagram page.
