ROLE MODEL OF THE WEEK, FIDE DAYO (FILM-MAKER, DIRECTOR, WRITER &ACTOR ) LIVING IN VENICE, ITALY

FIDE DAYO : Writer, Director, Actor, Producer.

 

Fide Dayo is a Nigerian filmmaker born into the Ekundayo family in Lagos, Nigeria.

His father was a local builder and his mother a seamstress in Yaba (Lagos). Fide was raised in Lagos during the Bruce Lee era and the era of romantic indian films along with the famous television, comedy series ‘The Village Headmaster’. However, this was by no means the influence thatwould spark his career in film.

Rather it was during his time living in Florence, Italy, where he studied architecture that his true inspiration for film creation was born. The film ‘Roots’ was the first seed planted in his journey towards filmmaking.

This film was narrated to Fide as a young boy, by his parents, through fairy tales and is instrumental in progressing his film career, as seen today. Fide attended film school to learn story narration through visual images. Fide strongly believes that his study of architecture was one of the main components that has enabled him in his movie making.

His first short film is ‘The girl with the little black book’, in (2000). Followed by a series of other short films:‘The front line’ (2001), ‘Diaspora’ (2002), ‘Fuga’ (2004), ‘That Day’ (2006). Two documentaries: ‘Who are the Yoruba’s’ (2008), ‘Identity on the move to integrate different worlds’ (2009).

FIDE

Finally, Fide had a breakthrough with his first feature film ‘Ben Kross’ (2011) in which he played the lead role as Ben Kross, a Nigerian immigrant worker, in Italy, who takes the risk of loosing his entire pension as a result of Italian government bureaucracy. Ben Kross was nominated as best film by an African film director living abroad, by the African Movie Academy Award 2012, (AMAA). In 2016, Dayo launched the film,
‘Minister’.
