The veteran gospel drama minister, Pastor Kayode Owojori, who played the role of Chief Durosanya, in the interview with BEYOND ENTERTAINMENT WITH PVO, speaks about his role in the online gospel drama series entitled “ABATTOIR”. Abattoir was written and produced by Damilola Mike-Bamiloye.
“My name is Kayode Owojori, a Christian Evangelical Drama Minister and by the grace of God, the husband of one wife, a father to three nations who are doing well, some of them are also in Christian drama and I give glory to God. I also operate in the office of a pastor, as a professional, I am a consultant in the area of COMMUNICATION development (Behavior Change Communication). I work with a couple of agencies all over Nigeria.”
According to the Veteran Evangelical Drama Minister, he said Evangelist Mike Bamiloye and his wife, Gloria Bamiloye, once told him that he will take the role of a ritualist or something close in future movie productions by the Mount Zion Faith Ministry, because a lot of people has labeled him with pastoral roles. As a drama minister, you must be able to fit into playing or portraying any role convincingly, it is called Multi-Dimensional Character, he added.
During the interview, he disclosed that Damilola Mike-Bamiloye informed him ahead of time so he can fix the film location of ABATTOIR in his schedule. “When Damilola Mike-Bamiloye sent the entire script to my email and I saw the character, I felt challenged because I was getting used to playing the regular pastor and suddenly a new cast” he added.
He revealed he had to soak himself into the character for three months before he went on location so as to make the work of the director easier. “I worked on the character and I believed God helped me, I’m not saying I did it convincingly but it was to an extent…”.
While speaking on the role he played, he said some parents openly said their children will not want to meet him and some kids even told their dad never to meet him again because he’s now evil. He also shared that some people had to rebuke the character in prayers on his behalf and even pleaded the blood of Jesus on him.
