A close source who spoke to Kemi Filani disclosed that Jubril had to get married to Sara two months ago, after impregnating her. We gathered that it took several pleas and meetings between the two families before the marriage eventually took place in time enough for the bride to proceed abroad to deliver the baby,

“We all know Sade loves to go extra for her celebrations but she couldn’t go as extra as she will have wanted for the wedding because the bride was already very heavy. And if you notice, the few photos released online of her weren’t full ones, it is either half portraits and she had to wear flowy gowns to hide the protruding tummy, not many videos were allowed to be posted online from the occasion, which is unusual of the Okoyas” our source disclosed.

Charles Inojie: #MakeWeHalla movement shows it’s time to change culture of silence around domestic violence in Nigeria

Published

on

 Nollywood actor and director Charles Inojie has opened up what inspired he and actor Ali Nuhu to create the #MakeWeHalla movement against domestic violence.

In a recent interview with Wazobia FM, Inojie noted that he wanted to use his platform to change the culture of silence around domestic violence, and he realized that the way to do it was to make noise.

“When we all keep quiet, the abuser, perpetrator of this act of abuse seems confident to do more. But when we speak up and against the abuse without being violent, it sends a signal to the perpetrator that he should desist.”

Inojie continued, “This evokes what prompted myself and Ali to decide to join our voices for this matter. We thought about it and arrived at the fact that we all are guilty if we continue to keep quiet, and watch domestic abuse happen around us. “Make We Halla” is actually a call to action to everybody around to say “if you see something that is bad, speak out and do not keep quiet.”

Ali Nuhu and Inojie recently teamed up in a viral video, “Make We Halla”, that has continued to make waves on social media. In the video, the two friends start banging on their plates in a restaurant in an attempt to call out the domestic violence they witness. Other patrons join in on the halla in a moving display of solidarity, and the violence stops.

The two film stars have gone a step further to start the #MakeWeHalla challenge that has seen celebrities like Wumi Toriola, Kiki Bakare, and Tosin Olaniyan, and many other fans jump on the #MakeWeHalla train and lend their voice.

Explaining the challenge during his interview, Inojie said, “We’ve been overwhelmed by how much support we’ve seen in this movement. It just shows how much we need this conversation. People have spoken up, shared their stories, and most importantly, committed to “Halla” whenever they see domestic violence.”

He continued, “The #MakeWeHalla challenge for everyone is very easy. Just go Tiktok or Instagram. Almost everybody is now on Tiktok, almost everybody is on Instagram. Take your phone. It’s easy. No rules, just halla your way. Anyhow, you deem fit to add your voice in raising awareness against domestic violence is welcome. Halla, talk am. Or if you feel like “I am someone that is shy’, you can go to the videos already uploaded -whether my own oo, or Ali’s own – you can duet. Just post with the hashtag #MakeWeHalla. And the beautiful thing is that joining in the challenge to create more awareness even gets you a reward. The best Halla video will collect brand new iphone 12..”

Going further, he said, “The hashtag is very important so that we can see the video. The hashtag is #MakeWeHalla. If you like, tag Ali or tag myself and for the prize we have, the middle of May will be the finale.”

When asked about his motivations for “Make We Halla”, Inojie also revealed how an incident he witnessed as a young man further changed his mindset about the need to always speak up when domestic violence is witnessed.

“By myself, as a little boy, I have seen one who, till today, lost one eye to domestic violence. That time, many of us could have done something in that same compound but we felt like we were concerned about it, because they are a couple and they will sort themselves out. So, all of those things are what we refer to as silent bystanders, passive. People just say “Wetin concern me?” or ignore and move on with their lives and in little time, major damage would have been caused. This has led to several innocent children losing their mothers and some becoming orphans. Hence, we say no to domestic violence, it shouldn’t thrive in our midst or our society. Let’s see a way, a movement to call people to action saying don’t keep quiet when you see domestic violence, no matter where it happens, no matter who it happens to, speak out but not in a violent way. Let’s Make We Halla!”, Inojie encouraged.

On Friday 5th April 2024, Double Tees Productions premiered and screened the movie Aiyefele at the iconic Odeon Imac Cinema in Greenwich London.

The premiere red carpet was graced by hosts of Nollywood celebrities, from one of the lead actors Biola Adebayo, Bimbo Oshin. To celebrity guests Rykado Agbor and a host of others.

Aiyefele Movie (A Community on the Brink) is a riveting feature film that follows the journey of a community always on the brink of desolation; it struggles to find a cure for the plague killing its citizens as its beliefs and practices conflict with the new faith brought by missionaries. The people are threatened by a self-destructive culture,
assaulted by an endemic disease and oppressed by some evil forces until an unexpected visitor arrives to lead them from the drumbeats of sorrow to a vibrant tune of freedom.

Aiyefele features a respected ensemble cast in the industry, including Odun Adekola, Mercy Aigbe, Femi Branch, Bimbo Oshin, Biola Adebayo, Rotimi Salami, Lara Aiyeomoni and Akinola Akano. It is directed by
the award-winning Seun Olaiya.
