Garlands For ‘Mr. Best of Nollywood’ Seun Oloketuyi
Birthday greetings have not stopped pouring in for notable celebrity journalist, founder of the annual Best of Nollywood Awards (BON awards), and movie producer, yes, movie producer Seun Oloketuyi.
The producer Blogger’s Wife starring Deyemi Okanlawon, Ijeoma Grace Agu, Adeniyi Johnson, Seun Omojola, Segun Arinze, Adunni Ade, and Aisha Lawal, was a year older on September 7 and the movers and shakers of the Nollywood industry took turns to congratulate Oloketuyi, a blogger and publisher of Best of Nollywood magazine who launched a book titled The Story of BON Awards to commemorate his birth anniversary.
In a message shared on Nollywood First, a WhatsApp platform created by Oloketuyi, writer, actress, and filmmaker Buky Campbell described the celebrant as a “lethal source of information and a wonderful colleague.”
The producer of Unbreakable also wrote: “You are a wonderful colleague and I dare say friend. Many happy returns of the day. I know Covid-19 tried to dull your shine but knowing you… one owambe will surface.”
Award-winning journalist, writer, and producer Zik Zulu Okafor described Oloketuyi as “an incredible guy, a creative mind, an innovative spirit, groundbreaker, avant-garde and an oasis of all” whose complex network, reach and penetration and the simplicity with which he brings these strides to bear is confounding.
Like others on the Whatsapp group, Zik, producer of the award-winning television series Heavens Gate and other critically acclaimed movies, closed with a prayer for God’s blessings and strength as the publisher and writer marches on.
Oloketuyi’s journey to becoming his own boss started with a stint at City People Magazine where he wrote for the Arts Pages. He moved on to Hints Magazine and thereafter Fame Magazine.
