Opeyemi Akintunde, the notable gospel film actress and producer have declared that she is not against gospel films in cinema, saying everyone has different ministerial approach.
This was made known recently during an interview session with Gospel Film News.
“I am not against it, we all have different ministerial approaches, If God is sending a man to the cinema, He will prosper there. We all can’t do Stage Drama Evangelism, or social media evangelism, or DVD film evangelism, We need Cinema Evangelism as well,” she stated.
Akintunde also disclosed that her film projects are Self sponsored by the Grace of God, with the strong support from her husband. She said though she pays her crew members, some of her casts get appreciated financially, while others do it as a way of serving God, yet she doesn’t get sponsor from anywhere.
When asked if she sells her movie, the star actress said: “money…well, I can’t say I make money from my movies, because, money has never been my motive for filmmaking. It is a call, it is my life, my purpose, so making movies is a privilege for me. So I can’t tell you I make money from it, but God blesses me for doing His work.”
