Eulogising Kemi, the thespian said her energy in movie production is unmatched and working under her direction is a different ball game, adding that everyone who had worked under her can attest to her uncanny gift.

He wrote: “Kemi Adetiba: The Record Breaking Director Making Movie Magic – CNN ( Go and Verify) KING MAKER. Story Teller, Visual Trouble Maker, King Woman Bruce Lee of Visuals.
“Haven been a huge fan of your work, I remember when our paths first crossed. I mean truly crossed. It happened with a mutual wish, that first grew as a thought in the minds, then put out into the universe as a wish, first as a simple tweet, and then an immediate response and Insta-post. The forces and elements were immediately in agreement and alignment. But that was just the beginning…
“And then then there was TKAM. Our paths crossed, finally, in person. Knowing You Was Loving You. The Energy, That You Bring, So Effortlessly…. And Then Working Under Your Direction Was a totally different ball game. You Left A Stain In My Brain A Significant Emotional Event. That One Scene, when you got into my head, with your vision for the scene, and took me to depths I had long forgotten where possible. And I cried the whole night, unable to separate myself from Teacher’s Pain. I woke up the next day, with renewed respect for you.
“Is your head swelling? Abeg let it swell because everyone who has come under your direction, will attest to your uncanny gift to guide your actors to find the characters’s truth. You deserve all of the accolades you get today and so much more.
