The Ooni of Ife played by versatile actor, Adedolamu Awolowo in a blockbuster movie titled, AGBARA ATI ASE is a film that chronicles the good works of Oba Enitan Babatunde Akande Ogunwusi OJAJA II (Ooni of Ife).
A King is the representative of Olodumare on earth and endowed with both physical and spiritual powers to govern, direct and protect his people against all odds. AGBARA ATI ASE is a movie that chronicles the good works of Oba Enitan Babatunde Akande Ogunwusi OJAJA II (Ooni of Ife).
Though not a biopic, but an action thriller that tells how to be creative in governance most especially as a traditional ruler.
Agbara ati Ase which is directed by Yemi Amodu glorifies good over evil of societal vices of internet fraud which is rampant among the youths. Using Kunle, a character that is played by Yinka Salau whom the king leads from waywardness to adopt the legitimate way of life.
The dynamism of the plotline is the Romeo and Juliet kind of adventurous romance that pitches Dan Joseph Momodu of Jerommy fame against Kunle (Yinka Salau) over the Princess.
Adebimpe (a fast rising Wunmi) rejects Kunle for his atrocious characters for a solace in love with Daniel. But true love never dies; Kunle metamorphose to a model of rectitude and this brings a blockade to the comfort Adebimpe may be enjoying from her troubled romance with Daniel.
Another twist in Agbara ati Ase that is highly intriguing is the conflict between Olajide (Taiwo Hassan, Ogogo) and the king himself. The eclectic plot of the film reveals so many trouble for the king to resolve but owing to his King Solomon kind of wisdom, he is able to bring peaceful resolution to the menacing crisis facing his community.
