‘Deyemi Okanlawon has fast become a fan favourite and one of Nollywood’s rising stars with movies and TV shows such as Beyond Blood, Gidi Up, Falling, Dowry, Journey to Self, Perfect Imperfection and Lekki Wives under his belt. He has carved a niche for himself, one with impeccable acting and a unique fashion sense.
In July, Deyemi and his wife welcomed their first child – a son; Ademide Oluwafirekanmi Okanlawon and thinking outside the box, he decided to create a short film in honour of his baby titled: “For You, My Son” which was shot in Dallas, Texas. He teamed up with filmmaker/photographer Biola Metesun of MalekFoto Films to co-produce this short film where he shares words of wisdom with his newborn. The concept is a wonderful one worth emulating, a step from the usual photoshoot that the regular celebrity does.
