Nigerian music sensation, Olaitan Ikuforiji, popularly known as Oxlade has officially taken a huge leap into Nigeria’s film industry with a debut acting role.
The 23-year-old music star is the lead actor in ‘Without You’, a short film released on YouTube on 21st of November.
Produced by Adeola Omooba and directed by Afolabi Olalekan, the short film centres on an unusual love story.
This film based on the songs ‘Pay Me’ and ‘More’ from Oxlade’s most recent EP (Eclipse) revolves around a mystical loop of the same happening but at different times for different people.
The 1121 company and Abazee productions collaboration see Oxlade star alongside ‘Riona’ star Chioma Okafor, Nzube Ezikeoha, and Isaac Egberamen.
Oxlade is undoubtedly one of the hottest talents rocking the airwaves. Though it is unclear if the music star will explore more acting in future, his new move ranks alongside music stars like Banky W and Falz among others, who have made successful careers in both industries.
