Alade Aromire: Bose Olubo Adegeye remembers a movie Icon

It was the normal waiting at the popular Klink Studio in Surulere, where Mr. Kinsley Ogoro pays host to many successful artistes today.

He was loving, patient and good to all with his wonderful equipments that served people well.

I was a regular backup singer/jingle and voice over studio rat then, who was ever ready to contribute to the script brought to studio for production. I was still at Yaba Tech studying Computer then.
Mama, the food seller next door was ever ready to serve us with bread and beans and other food with assorted meat.
One faithful day, I met Prince Alade Aromire and Prince Jide Kosoko through Mr Wale Adewuyi and my friend Yomi Omidiran who later poduced my first album, My Root, not forgeting Mickey Dread (Presy), I was in his band, singing.
When they walked in, I was very happy to attend to them while they booked for a film sound track.
That's the beginning of my journey into the movie world.
Prince Alade Aromire met with lot of insults from my family members that believed he influenced my diversion from computer science to full entertainment at the time computer was highly lucrative with very few experts around.

I could recollect doing some modelling but my height would never allowed me move further, as they only called me when they needed 'fine face'.
A senior colleague, Mr. Paul Obazele was actually my first boss that taught me  rudiments of acting and modelling. Then, my mother should never even know because I was looking for admissions. Then, I could only sneak into Suurulere while looking for job.
Since the day I met Prince Alade Aromire, he became my father, brother, teacher and boss as it took him almost five years to convince my disciplinarian mother who later gave me her blessing as I launched my first film, Omo Oko in 1995.
I got to Jide Soleye hospital that day as you took your last breath, I could not say goodbye.
Today, I remember you as always.
You are special, you were a genius, and I appreciate the way you loved me like a daughter.
Your taught me acting, television Presentation, Cinematography, Editing, Movie Production; movie Directing and others. Thank you Booda Muyi, keep resting in the Lord, Mr Movie.
