Popular Yoruba actor Feemi Adebayo reacted to a claim by a teen robber that his movie “GBEWIRI META” inspired him to go into robbery calling it a baseless excuse. He shared a scene from the movie on his IG page… Read his full post and watch the video after the cut.
Is Femi Adebayo an armed robber or promoting the act of robbery? ______ No ! He\’s just an ACTOR/Filmmaker . The act is called “ACTING”, which is an activity in which a story is told by an actor by adopting a scripted character. Simply put, to imitate or to enact a situation in a convincing way. My attention was drawn to a news about a teenager armed robber who said he developed his style of armed robbery after being inspired by a movie he watched- “GBEWIRI METTA” , where i acted as an armed robber . I find this absolutely appalling and baseless. The aim of a film maker /Story teller is to convey emotions to the viewer; raise awareness about an issue; educate about a subject; entertain and of course Make money. There are numerous lessons to learn in the said movie. Some of which are theme of parental care, societal/peer pressure and many others. The movie didn\’t just base it\’s plot strength on a boy who became an armed robber out of poor parental tutelage; nemesis also c@ught on him. It signifies that, for every bad deed, karma is approaching…A post shared by Femi Adebayo (@femiadebayosalami) on
