The couple, popularly known as Adeva and Tegan by their fans, has upped the ante by shooting a movie under their stage name, which will be launched before the end of September, 2018.
Daily Sun caught up with them during the shooting of the movie in Lekki, Lagos, recently, and they spoke on their challenges, why their production outfit is different from others, what awards mean to them and their modus operandi.
Asked what inspired them to set up Adeva and Tegan Talent Academy, the couple responded, “It has always been a dream for both of us to set up a foundation that will help youths horn their skills in the arts. We both started as teenagers and where our talents will be utilised. We believe we would be able to replicate such to youths and help harness their talents in dance, music and acting.
“We also have the passion to influence youths positively by contributing our quota to reorientate them in positive values. We believe in the young ones, because, if you are going to affect any change in future, it is best that you start with the young ones. Talent is easily recognized, which can make them famous and for them to be able to manage their success.
“The academy has been in existence for some years now, and we have organised marriage counselling, conferences, seminar for youths. And when we observed that youths are going into one form of relationship or the other, we thought it wise to catch them through their talents and divert their attention towards the arts.”
On the new release, Adeva and Tegan, the couple said, “We wrote the script, and it is about the activities of the academy. The battle we faced for nurturing talents for positive influence and the pressure from parents in entrusting their wards into our hands. The movie is exciting, because it is based on real life situations. In the production, we also acted as couples, and we are have affected their lives positively, and they have been working with us, and we want to affect the lives of youths positively.
Right now, we believe in making a statement through our films that will be well received in the society. We also intend to embark on our second production very soon and we believe corporate organisations will collaborate with us. We believe parents will be happy with it, and they can watch the movie with their children because it is educative, entertaining and informative.”
