He Has Been The One Selling The Film And Spending The Money’ – Baba Wande Accuses Tunde Kelani Of Cheating Him



Veteran Nigerian filmmaker, Tunde Kelani has been accused of not sticking to the agreement signed on the 1993 blockbuster movie titled ‘Ti Oluwa ni Ile.’

Naija News learnt that the accusation was levelled against him by popular Yoruba actor, Kareem Adepoju professionally known as Baba Wande.

The actor said Kilani failed to stick to the 30/70% agreement on the proceeds of the movie.

He said as the writer of the film, they both agreed he got 30%, while Kilani as the maker took 70%.

However, Baba Wande while giving an account of his investment and partnership with Kelani over the 1993 film on BBC during an interview said “I don’t know how to lie. He has been the one selling the film and spending the money.”

The veteran actor in his narration said “What happened was that I wrote the story and told Tunde Kelani about that story, he assured me that he would ensure the story was produced as a film. He provided all the equipment used and I provided the story, costumes and invited actors and actresses in the film.

“Tunde Kelani established a production company. He was the one who produced and financed the film. We both agreed that we would split the proceeds of the movies; he would take 70 per cent while I would take 30 per cent.

“The first money we made was #180,000 and I was given #15,000. I had expected 30 per cent of the money made. They claimed there were other expenses but I was not satisfied with what I was given.

“Subsequently, they would only ask me to go and meet the accountant, I wouldn’t know how much was made. Later, people were demanding part two of the film. The film was then very popular. I didn’t want to continue because I was not satisfied with the money they were giving me.”

Baba Wande asserted that all his efforts to get an appreciable amount of proceeds he worked for from Kelani proved abortive until he gave up.

He advanced that, “I later travelled to Abeokuta to meet Kelani and we both wrote parts two and three of the film. I knew if we didn’t finish the film, people would be saying it was Baba Wande that started a film and couldn’t finish it.

“After we finished the film, I stopped getting involved in whatever he was doing and I did not ask for anything from him and he too did not give me anything till today.

“I don’t know how to lie. He has been the one selling the film and spending the money.

“People have advised me to go to court but I declined because we didn’t start with lawyer, we are friends, and it won’t be nice to end up in court.

“I thank God because I don’t have the feeling that I was cheated. God has blessed me
