Ade Olufeko speaks at Yale University, collaborates with Bahia Shehab, others in new collective

The Visual Collaborative Polaris or North Star is an experimental collective led by multidisciplinary designer and award-winning technologist; Ade Olufeko. The collective as a periodical is a curated batch of interviews with over 169 minutes of non-linear content featuring 26 selected practitioners from three continents.

The interviews can be read on visualcollaborative.com/the_polaris_collective

The Polaris catalogue explores creative disciplines, perspectives and intrinsic value of the featured practitioners and how they interact with society. The project commenced in the Winter/Harmattan of 2019 for over a period of three months. This initiative is said to have been designed to iterate over time as a value-add service model for content providers, academic institutions and incubators.

Among the featured is a six time Emmy award winner Bobby Yan, a nationally recognized architect Tosin Oshinowo, international artists such as Polly Alakija, commercial illustrators and designers such as Autumn Whitehurst and Tiphanie Brooke, global art activist, educator and Senior TED fellow Bahia Shehab, singers and performers such as TolumiDE and Yvonne Sangudi, a practitioner of Yoruba philosophy Joyce Adewumi and an appearance by music recording engineer Jens Gad of the Enigma project. Among the features include art patron, Mexican power house Irene Hernandez-Feiks and filmmaker Remi Vaughan-Richards

Ade Olufeko the founder of the project is scheduled to impart on Innovation and Development at the Yale University conference for African Peace and Development, which will take place on April 6th 2019. He is also scheduled to speak on the future of African Arts and Media at the Stanford African Business Forum at Stanford University in San Francisco on April 20th, 2019.

Beyond the company’s platform and trademarked identity, the concept of Visual Collaborative can be evidently seen universally through its everyday usage regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status. Olufeko’s thought leadership over the years has been leveraged to bridge the divide between millennials and older generations, bringing literacy of the creative industry and its different facets to the fore.

Wizkid becomes first African to hit 8m monthly listeners on Spotify

Afropop star, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid has become the first African artist to hit eight million monthly streams on Spotify.

Spotify is an online, music streaming platform that pays royalties based on the number of artists streams as a proportion of total songs streamed.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that streaming records revealed Wizkid’s popularity on the platform on Monday.

The previous record was held by Congolese rapper and singer, Maitre Gims. He had seven million monthly listeners.

This win follows Wizkid’s recent collaboration with DJ Spinall and Tiwa Savage on ‘Dis Love’.

The singer also featured on ‘Like,’ a new single by British-Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kojo Funds.

The music star is also the first African artist to walk the runway at a Dolce and Gabbana fashion show while his music `Soco’ played at the background.

Wizkid started recording music at age 11 and managed to release a collaborative album with the Glorious Five, a group he and a couple of his church friends formed.

In 2018, he became the first African artiste to sell out Skyway Theatre. The only other artist who has achieved same feat in Minnesota, is Beyonce.

The ‘Sweet Love’ singer recently made Billboard entry for his collaboration with Beyonce on her ‘Lion King’-inspired album.

MY LAST RELATIONSHIP FAILED BECAUSE I BECAME A BITCH –DOLLY NWADUBA

MY  LAST RELATIONSHIP FAILED BECAUSE I BECAME A BITCH –DOLLY NWADUBA

Nollywood actress, Dolly Nwaduba, in this interview with LANRE ODUKOYA shared her journey in the movie industry, her unforgettable heartbreak and plans to have a secret destination wedding at Vegas or Hawaii

 

 

Could you tell us more about yourself?

 

I’m Dolly Nwaduba, a writer, producer and actor. I’m from Aniocha south, in Delta State.

 

I have been in the movie industry professionally, two years now. I came back to Nigeria in 2017 after my graduation from the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles and produced my first movie “Lights Out” and thus began my journey in Nollywood.

 

Was that your first experience?

 

It was quite different from my experience in Hollywood.

 

Because, I had initially worked there for a year after graduation. Things are done differently here, so, I had to learn a whole lot from that first movie I wrote and produced here. Production in Nigeria is easier to achieve, but at the same time more tedious to execute.

 

It’s a bit complicated, really.

 

What were the challenges you faced?

 

First, it was the casting.

 

As a writer, I’m very particular about who plays every character in my stories. But I had to learn to cast actors who would not only fit my character description, but also guarantee my money back. There’s also this “returnee problem ” I had because I went to a film school abroad. People just automatically assume you think you’re better than them so they try to openly correct and sometimes even humiliate you for not knowing how they “run things around here. ”

 

They forget you have a whole different experience from what they have. Some even challenged and accused me of going to waste money overseas when I could have just learned the ropes of movie production from under one of the prominent producers/directors for much less. It was crazy.

 

How did you pick your cast?

 

I usually have particular actors in mind when I’m writing. So, when I’m ready to shoot, I’ll contact these actors, and if they’re available, we work together. If not, I’d find suitable replacements. Do you have a new project? Oh yes, I’ve written and produced four movies since then. I’m currently working on the fifth.

 

I just finished one few weeks ago titled “one wish”. It was directed by Tchidi Chikere and will be out by next month.

 

 

Could you tell us more about your new project?

 

It’s an unconventional love story that I wrote last year after a very bad breakup. I was really depressed and had a lot of really messed up thoughts in my head but for the fear of going to prison or worse. I had to refrain myself from going to the extreme.

So, I did what every great writer would do. I poured out my thoughts on the pages of my book, and being blessed as an actor, I got to carry out my very evil plot of kidnapping my ex on his wedding day without fear of actually going to jail for it.

 

I got the best cast ensemble and the best director to tell this beautiful heartbreak story of mine.

 

Are you saying it is a true life story?

 

‘One Wish’ is my actual love story.

 

Well, except for the ending, which will shock everyone.

 

What led to the break up?

 

 

Truthfully, I became a bitch. It was my very first time actually falling in love with someone other than myself, so it consumed me that I became possessive to the point of obsession I think. I was constantly snooping around and nagging.

 

He met someone else who started giving him the peace I used to give him when we first started dating. I’m not saying he didn’t have his own faults, he did.

 

But I contributed majorly to the breakup. I literally drove him nuts.

 

How did you feel seeing him move on?

 

I felt really bad. The girl was so hot! I used to stalk her Instagram page. She’s the perfect slay queen! Whereas I struggle to even put on powder on my face. I felt so bad. What if he finds out about the movie, don’t you think he would know you are not over him yet? Well, I really don’t care what he thinks anymore. I’m so over him.

 

But yeah, of course he’ll know once he sees the movie or read this interview So, who are your cast and is it a cinema movie? Well, I of course played “Naomi” the heartbroken one.

 

 

Frederick Leonard played Philip my ex, Diana Okoh played my not so smart best friend who’s ready to kill for me.

 

While Lotachukwu played one of my best friends who happens to be my only voice of reason (the sensible one among the trio) and Ada Karl also known as Ada Slim played my no nonsense elder sis, who would rain down hell on anyone for her naughty sister who she sometimes avoids as well. And no, it’s not a cinema movie.

 

 

I’m not ready to produce a cinema movie yet. I would be by the end of the year though. It’s all in the works currently.

 

 

How do you get finance to fund your projects?

 

I financed myself and some were financed by private investors. One Wish was produced by my friend and record label owner “Philip Samuel ” the CEO of Make Sound From Minds Records (MSFM Records).

 

He’s someone who believes in me and wants to see me grow, as well as make money too. Are you currently in a new relationship? As much as I’m very open about my life, there are some things I still like to keep private.

 

My relationship status is one of them.
