Movie producer, Ayo Adey-Kosh has revealed why celebrity marriages often crashed.
According to the graduate of Psychology from the University of Lagos, divorce is not unique to any industry or race or ethnicity.
“A lot of marriage doesn’t last, it’s not unique to any industry or race or ethnicity. Marriages don’t last because one or both parties are not willing to compromise or sacrifice.”
On challenges faced as a movie producer, Ayo Adey-Kosh mentioned, “Finance, availability of good locations for the shoot and getting my movies out on the right platform. Most Nigerian tv platform give us diaspora producers a lot of problems, they make it even harder to get our movies out there, it’s like a gang up. So now a group of us are changing the narrative, if they won’t support us, we make our own platform”.
Despite the challenges that come with her career, she still finds time for her family.
“I just organize myself, give myself a sort of time table. Each day I spend about 2 hrs or a little more on anything movie-related including social media. Another 2hrs on my decoration business, the rest of the day is for my family and other things I need to do. I even set alarms so I don’t spend too much time on my work. And when I need to go for a production, I plan it with my husband. So it’s actually pretty easy for me”.
She further speak on the current project she’s working on, she gave the title as “Ile Iku”.
“It’s about a reality TV show where people are mysteriously disappearing, being murdered.
