Odunlade Adekola is bigger than you thought as 2016 saw the Yoruba actor grow into a major star in the Nigerian movie industry.

Featuring in over 30 movies, including an appearance in his first English movie, The Grudge, alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo, Ireti Doyle and Jaiye Kuti, the actor has indeed set himself above his peers.

It was no surprise then when NET Honours: People’s Choice Awards organisers announced him as the most searched and most popular Nigerian actor of 2016 on Monday.

Odunlade Adekola is bigger than you and I thought.

This is largely due to a Yoruba movie in 2016 being incomplete unless he  appeared in it.

As ubiquitous as he was, so also was the variety of his performances.

This variety which he brought to the screen – facial expressions and all – ended up making him appear in some of the funniest memes encountered on social media.

Meanwhile, Odunlade is already back to work to fortify his reign this year. He was recently spotted on set of A Million Baby alongside Ada Ameh, Ayo Mogaji, Tony Akposhere, and Seun Akindele.

Surely, the actor makes for a perfect star for fans to adore and upcoming acts to look up to.
