Taiwo and Kehinde Osuolale are famous Yoruba movie twins who rose to prominence several years ago after appearing in the late Yekini Ajileye’s film and became immediate celebrities.
Taiye and Kehinde Osuolale are identical twins known as Ibeji Oran in Yoruba film. These names were given to them because of their performances in the epic film Ide, which was created by late Yekini Ajileye in 1993. The small actors haven’t looked back since. The happily married duo has also appeared in films such as ‘Koto Aiye’ and ‘Seranko Seniyan,’ among others.
Their awful appearance and stigmatization have never slowed their success in the industry.
The entertainers native to Osogbo believed that disability could be a source of strength.
In 2011, ModernGhana reported on an interview with them, focusing on their lives and
God made us all; each and every one of us was crafted by Him in a special, individual way.
No longer do we pity ourselves, we refuse to let what others say affect us. We recognize that we each hold a unique place in the world. That’s why we’re creating a movie centered around our own experiences.
The movie is called Osuolale, after our dad. It’s a story about our lives, how we came into the world, and how we’ve developed into the people we are today.
We urge folks to keep an eye out for the film’s imminent release. Unfortunately, many people have been unwilling to lend us a hand, and if they had, we would have made it much bigger. Just take a look at Aki and Pawpaw – if people hadn’t assisted them, they wouldn’t be as huge as they are today.
Another source of anguish is the fact that we are not financially secure. We want to move because we need more money to aid ourselves and our families, but unfortunately, no one is willing to help us.
Our most embarrassing moment occurred just before our wedding. People didn’t think we’d find a wife.
They didn’t believe we’d ever have regular children. But we praise God for using our testimonies to silence them.
Despite the fact that Taiye’s wife is no longer with him. She left following their marriage. He is, nevertheless, the proud father of a baby girl. Blessing is her name.
Asked why did she leave,what happened?
Taiye said, “I’m not sure.” She merely said she wanted to see her relatives. Her family also made a contribution. We paid her bride price and did everything else, but her family did not return her when she went to them.
We’ve never for once regretted the way God created us, there is no cause for regret. Many are better than us and are not alive today. We thank God, at least we are still alive.
The physically challenged twins, also known as “Ibeji Oran” (Mysterious Twins), wed in 2010, and one of them (Taiwo) celebrated the naming ceremony of their new born kid. The event was the talk of the town in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, and was held at Leisure Hall, Osogbo, with Fuji star on the band stand, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma.
Afeez Salami, CEO of Afeezco Films and Records, a leading Marketer in Idumota Lagos, organized the event, which was glitzy and glamorous.
Kehinde Osuolale passed on 2014.
