Beautiful and sexy Yoruba actress, Biodun Okeowo no doubt has come a long way to become the household name in the industry today.

For some years now she has been very busy, making and featuring in different films. Her latest work in the market "Ife n siere (love is crazy) is still a hot item in the market but that has not made the Lagos State University graduate rest on her oars as she is back on location brewing what may be another hit.

Biodun, who spoke with HVP on phone during the week, said she would be shooting day two of the movie that day, adding that everything is going on well with the cast and crew.

"Omo Butty", according to her will bring to the fore disadvantages of over-pampering a child up to the point of spoiling the child. "Omo Butty" which may literally translate to mean 'pampered child' is being played by Biodun herself alongside a rich cast that includes Madam Saje, Bukky Wright and others.

The synopsis of the story is about a child who is over-pampered by the parents up to the point that she could neither read or write. At a point when a teacher complained about the child's unseriousness the teacher was rewarded with a sack after the child complained to her parents and the parents leaned on the school authority to have the teacher shown the gate.

But things soon turned around for "Omo Butty" when she lost her parents and had to be faced with vicissitudes of life. She found out that she could not cope.

Ever since Biodun came into the movie industry she has done very well by herself. In 2010 she won the MAN's Top Three Actress award followed by Global Exellence Award as Upcoming Movie Personality Of The Year 2010 and she was the first Yoruba Artiste ever to clinch the Global Exellence award.
