Dr Ibukun Awosika is to play her first acting role in the upcoming Citation movie by Nigerian director and producer, Kunle Afolayan.
The FBN chairman revealed on her Instagram page on Monday how she feels about her casting for the movie. Posting some pictures from the movie set, Awosika's description of her experience on the movie read, “It is not in all situations, that we get a chance to do more than talk, about an issue that we are passionate about. The challenges that the female gender faces in her pursuit to be her best is multidimensional. When great institutions all come together, with an award-winning producer to take on a global issue, it seemed like a good risk worth taking as well as a great adventure into a field I had never experienced.
“Real respect for the players of the field. Don’t judge a man’s job until you have walked in his shoes. Nigeria is truly blessed to have so many great professionals. The potential for the sector to create jobs and add to economic growth is without question.
“I enjoyed the experience and I thank all those who made it fun for me! Wakanda forever! CITATION is a definite must-see!!”
Awoshika plays the role of the university faculty dean, who heads a Senate hearing panel of a female student, Moremi (played by Temi Otedola), who has been a victim of sexual harassment.
The movie was shot in the Obafemi Awolowo University and three other countries and also stars the likes of Gabriel Afolayan, Jean Louis, and Sadiq Baba amongst other casts whose names are yet to be revealed.
