Tope Tedela: A man of many faces

22 June 2017
Tope is no stranger to lovers of African cinema. He took a break from the movie set to share some of his latest career pursuits on Jara

After a traditional ceremony determined that Tope's character, "Miyise" was the Chief's son, he quickly took to his new role as prince, calling shots and banishing people. In real life however, the AMVCA award winner is anything but boisterious or arrogant. He's earned quite a reputation amongst those who adore him for being brilliant yet humble.

He's also received high praise for his versatility as well as his prowess as a method actor. Tope has never been one to shy away from a challenging role and he's pulled off everything from fabulous metrosexual in Suru L'ere to a gun touting hero in Slow Country. 

As if that's not enough, the Jemeji star is now looking to expand his horizons even farther. For the last two years, he's been hard at work on his debut effort as a film producer, a thriller called 'What Lies Within'. The movie sees him uncharacteristically take a lesser role on screen in exchange for a more commanding position on the other side of the lens.

Take a moment to hear about the experience from the horse's mouth in this excerpt from his interview last night. Don't forget to catch him in action on the most talked about show in Naija at 21:30 CAT, Africa Magic Showcase, Ch151.
