She shared her thoughts at the exclusive premiere of the movie which premieres on Netflix on November 6, 2020.
Reacting to Citation, Temi Otedola shared: “This movie is more than entertainment. The heart of this movie is a message to the world and I just feel so blessed, honored, grateful to bring this character, Moremi Oluwa to life. For many months, she lived within my heart and it is even hard till this day to separate the two of us. I hope I was able to be a vessel for countless of girls in this country who will not get the chance to tell their story. That is the heart of ‘Citation’ for me.”
Citation follows the story of a postgraduate student who gets sexually harassed by her lecturer.

It is absolutely unconscionable.”
She continued, “I don’t know why they would be doing it. I don’t know what’s on their minds, but if we don’t turn out this vote and turn it out huge, this man could end up winning again. And this country would go backward.”
