‘Stupid Finder’, a new short film, has had some buzz since its premiere at the 2022 graduation of the EbonyLife Creative Academy.


The film was awarded best picture, best screenplay, best director, best male lead actor, best editing, best costume design, best art director, and best final mix and music.

Directed by Dotun Ololade and Sylvester Ahonsi, it is based on a story by Hope Matthew.

‘Stupid Finder’ is produced by Eric Nwanso, Lawrence Iweriebor, Imoh Eboh, and Stephanie Ugbeye.


The film addresses such themes as crime, love, brotherhood, and discovering a new path.

It dwells on how Nigeria’s not-haves survive and the chances of carving a path out of life.


The short film features amazing acts from different walks of life and alumni of the EbonyLife Creative Academy.

Among them are Ezekiel Abayomi, Akorede Ajayi, Ayodeji Adejumo, and Joy Chioma Obilo.

Speaking on the film, its producers say the project is targeted at educating those in the lower social class to pursue their goals and step out of the stereotype of their present locations.

“What we did with Stupid Finder is simple; we used storytelling to engage the Nigerian communities on complex social issues, in a way that is relatable and make sense,” said Dotun Ololade, a co-director of the project.
