The trio of entertainment industry stakeholders, Dele Momodu, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, and Seun Oloketuyi are set to produce one of the biggest biopics of our time titled ‘Baba Kekere’, a movie chronicling the life and times of elder statesman and revered politician, late Lateef Kayode Jakande.

Dele Momodu, speaking on the reason why a biopic on Jakande was necessary said, “One of the things we want to achieve with Baba Kekere the movie is that these days, many youths believe that going into politics is merely a means to an end. They believe it is all for money and not service. The life of Jakande is a perfect example that shows that many times, politics is not about money, it is about service. 

On the choice of the title, Oloketuyi shared that Baba Kekere was a fond moniker for Jakande. “Many people referred to him fondly as Baba Kekere. He was an honest, humble politician, and till his death, he was dedicated to the service of humanity and remained a friend to the people, hence the nickname.”
