My Experience At Isale Eko Shooting ‘giddy Up’ Birthed ‘gangs Of Lagos’ ―Osiber by geesilver(m): 10:19pm On Apr 12, 2023
The Director and Producer of Gangs of Lagos, Jade Osiberu has explained that her experience at Isale Eko while shooting another movie called Giddy Up initiated her thoughts around ‘Gangs of Lagos’.

Jade, while speaking to journalists at a Press briefing recently in Lagos, said they became characters in the story as she saw a mother cooking dinner and feeding her children.

She thought about what it would feel like to live in Isale Eko, stuck there yet desiring more for herself and her children.

According to her, she wanted to humanise people who live lives people don’t understand, saying it is a revelatory film.

Osiberu, therefore, stated that the movie is a story of empathy, love and dreams

“Twelve years ago, while I was shooting a series called Giddy Up in Isale Eko, across the window from where we were, I could see into another building’s window section and the people living there.

“Immediately, they became characters in my story. I saw a mother cooking dinner and feeding her children.

“I thought about what it would feel like to live in Isale Eko, stuck there yet desiring more for yourself and your children.

“I wanted to humanise people who live lives we don’t understand. It’s a revelatory film. It shows political thuggery. It’s a story about empathy, dreams, and love. I also hope people are entertained,” she said.

Speaking also, Nigerian Actress, Adesua Wellington said she played a character that required so much from her physically and emotionally at the same time, adding that she had always been somewhat physical, but most people don’t know that side of her because she has not played many of those roles.

According to her, she did physical theatre for five years; Hence, it was a muscle that she had been itching to scratch, and for it to be done in a way that she would be proud of as well.” She said.
