Why I Have Not Produced A Yoruba Movie- Rukky Sanda

Rukayat Adesanya popularly known
as Rukky Sanda has explained in a new interview with Vanguard why she has not
produced a Yoruba Movie despite already producing sixteen English movies. According
to Rukky Sanda, she will soon produce one, because she has started making plans
to know if investing in Yoruba movies will be profitable or not. All the same,
she reminded the interviewer that her speaking of her native language was not
fluent, and that is also a key.
Most people do not know your real
name is Rukayat Akinsanya. How did you come about the stage name Rukky Sanda?
Sanda is my last name and given
that one has to have a stage name, I just brought in Rukky, which people have
always called me. That was how I came up with the name. Continue…

You have produced seventeen
movies, when will you produce a Yoruba movie?
I have it in mind; because I am
an executive producer, I really need to be sure I’m going to get my money back.
I do not really know how their market works, and I have actually spoken to the
platform I sell my own movies to, on how much they buy Yoruba movies plus some
other information. So if I get the proper network, I will do it. I actually
have a script I’m supposed to do with Ramsey Noah. However, it’s not a full
Yoruba film, but it’s a Yoruba setting. I really don’t know how I’m going to do
the full one yet because although, I speak Yoruba, it’s not all the time.
Yoruba films are amazing, so I’m going to do it when the time comes; my mum
actually also wants me to do it.
Normally, when a Yoruba lady
delves into the movie industry, she starts from the Yoruba sector before she
crosses over, how come your case is peculiar?
At the time when I started acting
in 2004, I was in Lagos State University and school was on strike. I was very
idle then, even though I did business at the time. So I met my sister’s friend
who worked with movie makers then. She took me for an audition where I got a
role to play, and at the end of the audition, I decided I was never going to do
it again because we had to do it all through the night. From that point, I
stopped doing movies up until 2006 when I graduated.
