Laide Bakare Launches Uncommon Alhaja in the US

Barely five

months after releasing what has been described as the most successful Yoruba

movie in recent time, Jejere,sizzling Nollywood actress, Laide

Bakare has dropped yet a new flick. Titled Uncommon

Alhaja, the shooting of the flick began just a month after the ceremonial

launch in Lagos of Jejere which was graced by heavyweight personalities from

various professional fields.


Alhaja’ is indeed uncommon as it educates
deeply on principles and personal behaviours. The spirit the new movie, set to be

launched in the United States of America this week Saturday 20th July 2013, however, discourages judging one’s fellow. Many tend to enjoy faulting

other people’s personal behaviours or ways of life.

But the movie discourages this and mirrors how a life devoid of

unnecessary meddling can be worth living.  

“We all need second chances in life. 

This isn’t a perfect world.  We’re not perfect people.  Some of us

are probably on our 1000th second chance right now and we are not and should

not even be ashamed to admit it.  This is because even though we must have

failed a lot, but it means we have also tried a lot too. This is what the movie

is all about”, stated Laide Bakare, the writer and producer of the flick who acted

the lead role of Alhaja Ti O Common, a famous single lady who indulges in charity

apparently to make up for some of her bad choices in the past. She will

always donate to charities in order to address a variety of shameful transgressions

she had indulged in and for which she was roundly and widely condemned. But she

got a second chance when nature brought her together in romance with the co-lead

character, Odunlade Adekola, who had been on manhunt for her and had vowed to eliminate

her for being an instrument to the death of his (Adekola’s) wife many years

ago. The movie features other Nollywood stars like Fali Werepe, Sunkanmi

Omobolanle, Kemi Afolabi, Sola Kosoko, and lots more. The all-white event will

take place at NAICOM Community Centre, Brooklyn, New York.

“We rarely get things right the first

time.  Almost every major accomplishment in a person’s life starts with

the decision to try again and again. The only difference between an opportunity

and an obstacle is attitude.  Getting a second chance in life is about

giving yourself the opportunity to grow beyond your past failures.  It’s

about positively adjusting your attitude toward future possibilities”. –
