Ilebiyi popularly referred as Omo Allen in the Yoruba genre of

the Nollywood has finished all plans to flag off his

movie academy.

The handsome movie maker, Wale, this time, is

really don't know this stuff thorough and thorough”

he boasted.

And for his movie academy, he says “this is the

right time for them to broaden their knowledge,

polish and update their techniques and the would-be

actors too who are just coming into the industry

will have a lot to gain from the academy.”
