I celebrate my friend and my boss PETER AKINTADE OGIDAN who turns 60 today.
A man who is never afraid of huge creative assignments. From his days as director of NTAs Village HEADMASTER in the 80s where he got me to play a bit part, TADE has moved on quick and strong with awesome credits. From the very ambitious HOSTAGES which had cinema screenings at the time to the multiple award winning OWO BLOW, DIAMOND RING, to RAGING STORM released in 1997 where I wore my first full cap as Producer.
Tade has produced and directed DANGEROUS TWINS, PLAYING GAMES, MADAM DEAREST and the big one GOLD STATUE. Currently leading his team on CRIME FIGHTERS Television program, You can not be with Tade and not think large scale in the creative environment.
A man with a kind and noble heart,always aiming to surpass his past with audacious mindset yet very soft hearted. There is no other person I know with Tades mindset in the motion picture environment in Nigeria.
As you turn the enviable age of 60 today sir, I say this short prayer.. That your light keep shinning, loruko Olodumare. Happy 60th birthday.
