What We Know About About Charles Okpaleke’s Upcoming Biopic On 90s Gang Leader Shina Rambo
Charles Okpalele is coming to your screens with yet another remake. This time, he’s taking on the biopic of dread gang leader of the 1960’s Shina Rambo.
In a post on his Instagram, the House of Play boss shared he’s acquired the rights to make a full length film of the robbery king-pin.
Ogun State-born Shina Rambo, real name Oluwasina Oluwagbemi and his gang were notorious for carrying out deadly robbery attack in their heydays. They terrorised towns in the South-West of Nigeria, eluding police net with famed fetish means.
In 2018, a man, Matthew Oluwanifem resurfaced claiming to be famous Shina Rambo. He also claimed to have repented and is now a Pastor. Charles Okpaleke says a conversation with the alleged Shina Rambo inspired him to make his next film.
“I sat down for 3 hours and listened to a former bandit and armed robbery kingpin who terrorised Southwest Nigeria in the 90s. Though he’s now a pastor preaching the gospel, his story was intriguing. I decided to acquire the Intellectual property rights to his story and make it an action-packed feature film. His name is Shina Rambo”.
