Popular actress, Bimbo Oshin-Ibironke, takes on men who find it tough to talk to women in her new movie, Igboya, AKEEM LASISI writes


Celebrated Yoruba actress, Bimbo Oshin-Ibironke, did not give room for much speculation when she decided to take a break from the screen some two years ago. She told her fans that she needed the break to get closer to her family, especially her then little son she wanted to pamper with warmth.


Her close friends have helped her to extend the metaphor by saying that she had also gone for 'exclusive breastfeeding'. Whatever this means, the fact is that the lady who took part in Langbodo, Wale Ogunyemi's play recently staged in Akure, Ondo State, two months ago is back for good. She announced her return with film titled Temiyemi.


Her instinct appears to have, however, got bolder and more piercing with the coming of her new movie, Igboya.


Parading stars that include Muyiwa Ademola, Jide Kosoko, Anta Laniyan, Aishat Abimbola and Oshin-Ibironke herself, it is a film that treats a phenomenon that affects the love life of many men, which even eventually determines the level of fulfillment they have in their marriages. This is the silent but pervasive disease of lack of courage to express their minds to ladies they desire, especially when they meet such 'birds' in unusual places and times.


While the syndrome is at times compounded by procrastination, the victim in Igboya (which translates as 'Boldness') is Ademola (Okikiola), who has a burning passion for his boss in office (Oshin-Ibironke) but cannot express his mind. Handsome and brilliant, he is the right candidate for many ladies, including the boss who, being a woman, cannot make the first move. Lily-livered Okikiola squanders every opportunity and prompting to say, 'I love you'. That is how another man - who, beyond financial capability, is inferior to Okikiola - snatches the woman's heart and eventually takes her to the altar. Okikiola's struggles to fight this reality give the story some galloping twists that will teach many viewers some lessons.


When Oshin-Ibironke and the marketer of the film directed by Muyideen Ayinde, Epsalum Productions, gave a sneak preview of the film at the weekend, many stakeholders applauded the work. These include Epsalum's Chief Executive Officer, Kazeem Afolayan, media expert, Esan Sunday, who was the compere; Ademola, Ayinde and popular actress, Ronke Ojo, who describes Ohsin as a committed professional.


Ojo, otherwise called Ronke Oshodi Oke, says, "I didn't expect anything less from Bimbo. There are two groups in the film industry: those who have passion for the job and those who just want to be 'stars' or who have no job and just feel that the movie industry is open. Bimbo knows what she is doing."


Oshin-Ibironke explains that Igboya is a true life story of a gentleman who is still alive.


She says, "Whenever I have an idea to develop into a film, I first call some people together to get their impression about it. When I sounded the group out, they all said it was an area worthy of exploring. When many young guys start lives in big organisations, they have dreams, but lack the courage to express themselves. The fact is that the lady in question may also love you, but it is the duty of a man to make the move."

That line bugs me.

A trailer would have been nice. I would have liked to see Bimbo Oshin not play the lead role. I know it's her movie, her story. She can still get the credit for that but someone else's face as lead and her playing a supporting character or a cameo would have been nice, it's somewhat of a tease in the good way.

No, they did NOT use that Titanic OST. I can't stand that movie and now the song whose rights I hope was purchased.

I want to see this film for Antar Laniyan, Rachel Oniga and Jide Kosoko. The trailer is not that bad but with the title meaning boldness, I wanted something fast-paced and BOLD not something slow and soft. Oh well.

THE WEAVES GOTTA GO! I like natural hair because you can do so much, if one bothers to do the research and find out. I am not a fan of weaves but I can tolerate good ones: short, non-frizzy, well made without the tracks in sight and NOT AYAMATANGA LENGTH. The same with acrylic nails.

Depends on what Bimbo meant by "boldness" and where it is being applied. It might be boldness without gra gra.
