Oke Set To Release New Movie, Cookie Spot
Tolulope Oke, a very creative and innovative actress, has completed work on her latest movie, Cookie Spot. The new movie, according to her, teaches hope and inspires the audience they can make it despite all the odds. “I tried to project life and its possibilities. Cookie Spot is a story of survival; there’s always a means of survival.”
The storyline focuses on women, while challenging them to be the best wherever they are. “There’s need for women to support one another. Young women should see the bigger picture of whatever they are doing; possibilities are endless in life. Whatever you are doing, you should not give up; you can always be a better person wherever you are. Cookie Spot will challenge every young lady and women generally should have the strong will to succeed against all the odds,” she said.
The actress believes the industry is improving as it has already attracted global attention.However, Tolulope wants tradition and culture to be showcased more in a positive way in Nollywood movies.
“There are some perspectives that should be changed in storylines; the voodoo aspects gives people some wrong impression that anything can happen. In the real sense of it, selling our culture makes us unique but it should be done appropriately. Our culture should be projected positively not only about voodoo,” she said.
The actress, who studied Sociology at the University of Lagos, also obtained a Diploma in Dramatic Arts from the Obafemi Aolowo University, Ife. She joined the industry between 2005/2006, but started fully 2011/2012 when she featured in Awure Eni produced by Muhideen Oladapo. Some of her personal production works are Bi Ala (Like a dream), which featured Peju Ogunmola, Akin Lewis, Dele Odule and others in 2012.
