“I travelled with the Ooni to Brazil to do some cultural things for
African people over there, especially the Yorubas. It’s like our father
going there to unite them and bring them back to the roots.
“We have about 400 deities in Yoruba land and 200 in Ife. In Brazil
they worship Sango and some other gods; they even sing Yoruba songs.
They sang the songs for us when we got there. I’m the first actor and
movie producer to travel out with the Ooni”, he said.
He added, “The Ooni took me there so we could look for ways to
beautify our culture; so that both countries can work together. Movie
makers there appreciate our culture. I was surprised to see how they
love and embrace our culture. So we are trying to work together with
the government to produce a movie in that regard”, he said.
