Video director, Olalekan Buhari, aka Unlimited LA, raised a lot of eyebrows sometime ago when he declared that Big Brother Naija 2018 contestant, Khloe, is his girlfriend and that he is planning to get married to her soon. He made the pronouncement on social media days after the competition kicked off in January.
However, in a chat with Sunday Scoop, the video director sang a different tune. He stated, “Khloe is not my girlfriend. I was just joking when I made that post. She is just my friend. The whole thing was a publicity stunt. It isn’t her nude pictures or the bad reports about her that have made me to say she is no longer my fiancée. We have never dated. I don’t have any girlfriend; so, my post did not offend anybody close to me. “As for my taste in women, I like someone who is smart and hard-working. She also has to have a pretty face. That is what would attract me in the first place.”
Now that Khloe is back in the competition, LA says he doesn’t know what her chances in the house are. “The funny thing is that I don’t watch Big Brother. I don’t have any interest in it and I am always very busy. It was even on Instagram that I got to know that Khloe was a contestant,” he said.
Rebutting reports that there is a rivalry battle between him and Clarence Peters, LA said, “I am close friends with Clarence Peters. There is no basis for comparison between us because he has more work experience than me. There is no way I can compare myself with him because he is bigger than I am. People are just talking but at the end of the day, we just want to get paid. There are lots of videos to be shot. I can’t shoot all the videos and Clarence cannot shoot everything as well.”
On how he derives inspiration for his video direction, Unlimited LA said, “Some clients would say they want some specific things in their videos; so, I have to go by way of whatever they say because it is said that customers are always right.”
Speaking on some of the challenges faced by directors in the country, LA said, “As directors, we all face challenges. At times, we go on set only to be harassed by louts who demand money before we can be allowed to do our job. Sometimes, we could also be in the studio and there would be no electricity supply, yet the generator would also not work.”
