Veteran Filmaker plans to do movie on late Fuji Icon
Filmmaker Tunde Kelani has announced plans to produce a new movie on late Fuji icon Ayinde Barrister.
Kelani recently unveiled plans for the new project at a festival organised to celebrate the life and achievements of the musician.
Speaking at the event, the movie producer said the forthcoming project, unofficially titled ‘Sikiru Ayinde Barrister’, would help spotlight the late musician’s contribution to the growth of Fuji music.
“My decision is irreversible. Barrister deserves to be so immortalised because of his numerous works which still set the pace for living fuji musicians in the market,” Kelani said
Sikiru Ayinde Balogun also known as Ayinde Barrister passed away on December 16, 2010, in the United Kingdom after a brief battle with an undisclosed illness.
Kelani’s announcement comes in the wake of the success of ‘Ayinla’, a biopic on late Apala singer Ayinla Omowura which was met with positive reviews.
