All this while I have been giving Music Video Director Sesan Ogunro such a hard time, unaware that Fade Ogunro is also behind some of the controversial music videos that we have seen from the Sesan camp. 🙂 Duly noted.
In this video clip, the production executive and business owner shares insight on the operations of her business, Film Factory; and working with her various industry clientele. By the way, it is good to see Liz Yemoja back on the interview grind. Last interview I watched that she conducted was that with the late Da Grin (R.I.P.)
It’s Monday! Let’s get it people!
Have a great week ahead.
Fade Ogunro is a TV Producer and co-owner of FILM FACTORY, Africa’s premier TV production house. Every weekend she hosts her Radio show on THEBEAT99.9FM, the number one Radio Station in West Africa and is a co-host of the TV show, GLAM REPORT TV.
. . . I grew up in Media and Entertainment as my father and brother are both in the industry. I studied for a degree in journalism and creative writing in Roehampton University, UK. I work closely as a producer with my older brother, Sesan, who is a director. We have produced various tv commercials, concerts and music videos.
This means I travel a lot; visiting new places and learning from new cultures attends to my inquisitive nature. Leaving Nigeria at the age of 8 and growing up in the UK I learnt to speak French and Spanish. You can describe me as outgoing, hardworking and extremely creative. I believe in loving what you do and I love all my jobs. I love the media and I envision myself impacting African media both behind the cameras as a producer and in front as a presenter….well that’s the 3 year plan.
When it comes to fashion, I’m a shoe junkie! I start getting ready by deciding which shoes I want to wear first then create an outfit around it. I wear a lot of Nigerian clothing labels, I’m incredibly proud of the talent we have. My beauty regime is simple, cleanse daily and wear SPF 30 sunscreen. I’m not a fan of exercise, however, I try to eat healthy, drink a lot of water and dance a lot.
