Deyemi Okanlawon, Kiki Omeili, & Taiwo Gasper Star in ‘Common Man’ by Stanlee Ohikhuare | Watch B-T-S



If you don’t know Stanlee Ohikhuare, then you have to pay attention! This writer, filmmaker and producer, consistently puts out good work, with social-conscience themes. Remember Deadwood? The documentary about the plight of old people in Nigeria? Yeap! That was Stanlee {Click here if you missed it}

His latest work, Common Man, has been nominated in the Social Justice/Protest Category of the Accolade Global Film Competition, and is scheduled for screening at the International Peace & Film Festival, Orlando, USA.

Common Man is a narrative fiction piece featuring Deyemi Okanlawon, Kiki Omeili, Taiwo Gasper and Lord Frank.

We cannot wait to see the full feature film. In the meantime, check out the behind the scenes footage, with commentary from the cast and crew.

Watch it here:

    THIS GUY IS A “KING” IN HIS ESTABLISHED PREFERRED GENRE. Just browsed through his website and was blown away! Nigeria’s entertainment Industry has hope – I must confess!
    I’m just wondering why I never heard of him till now.

    Bella Naija – you guys forgot to mention the COLORTAPE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in Australia.
    It’s indicated on his website and please, could you guys include that AWESOME poster with my crush A.K.A Deyemi Okanlanwon looking all serious and pouring candle wax on his hand? The official movie poster I mean. It’s really thought provoking.
    It’s on the director’s site here:

    Is this movie going to be available in the cinemas? I really want to see it. If the behind the scene video is this interesting, I can only imagine how the actual movie will be.

    Great work. I would surely love to work with this man. His movies are not your typical nollywood things. In short this is not nollywood at all.
    well done to his crew.
