Michael Ogbolor: On the production set and the role â€˜Jamesâ€™
We are here shooting Jenifaâ€™s diary, weâ€™ve been working all day and itâ€™s been a long day. Shooting Jenifaâ€™s diary is something Iâ€™ve been looking forward to. Iâ€™m playing the role of James, a male stylist, a man with a feminine mannerism. But thatâ€™s not me on a good day, but as an actor i have to get into character.
On Jenifa (Funke Akindele):
Jenifer is a total package, actress, she directsâ€¦When i saw the movie, Jenifa itself some years back, it eerm..i look forward to work with her because i had my own craziness as a comedian/radio presenter. I have that part of me that always want to do stuffs like what she did. When i had this opportunity to work with her i saw another aspect. Sheâ€™s someone that knows what sheâ€™s doing, she sabi the work well, working with her on set, sheâ€™s all out, shâ€™s not the diva, sheâ€™s home,sheâ€™s branded. She could go crazy on set, but at the end of the day,itâ€™s basically anyone who is wanting to bring out something good will need to reach out to guys and i think sheâ€™s doing an awesome job. Sheâ€™s down to earth when i say down to earthâ€¦jenifa is really down to earth.
