Gold for tade Ogidan’s Gold statue
It is the movie title on the lips of most moviegoers. Ask them to recommend a Nollywood movie that is well made and a moviegoer would like to see again and again and they will chorus Gold Statue.
Currently showing in cinemas across the country, there have been tons and tons of positive review on the adventure comedy drama that has the signature of veteran filmmaker in the professional class, Tade Ogidan.
Indeed, positive reviews have trailed the star studded outing, which features some of the industry’s dependable actors, including Norbert Young, Richard Mofe Damijo, Gabriel Afolayan, Sola Sobowale and Bisola Aiyeola.
Gold Statue follows the story of two young men, Wale (played by Gabriel Afolayan) and Chike (played by Kunle Remi), who are in search of a gold statue believed to have been a deity inherited by their generation. But in trying to locate the statue, they go through a series of unimaginable and ridiculous ordeals.
A graduate of Radio/TV/Film and Theatre Arts from the US, Tade, whose expertise is highly sought after throughout the industry, is without doubt, one of the pioneers of the motion picture industry. He worked at the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) before setting up his OGD Pictures Limited, which is unarguably a major name in the business of film and television productions.
While at the NTA, he produced and directed several episodes of the long-rested television drama series, The Village Headmaster, and most of the drama series of the NTA, including Play of the Week and Tele-Theatre. Tade, who has produced and directed projects for major advertising agencies in Nigeria and coordinated a couple of shoots for foreign production outfits, has led his OGD Pictures Limited to become a household name in the motion picture production business and has produced several television commercials, documentaries, musicals and drama for television and film.
Most of his projects have not only won awards at home and abroad, but also his name is associated with high standard and technical quality. Indeed, nearly all the movies that he has produced or directed or written, such as Hostages and Dangerous Twins have won multiple awards and are all acknowledged major hits.
