She did the good days of comedy, before disappearing from the location for a while. Recently, it has re-appeared on the small screen, through the "Adja" series. Sequences received the gift of joining the boyfriends of the theater in the 90's where he made the tobacco "Bara Yégo" turkey in the Senegal households. "The Obs" makes the last magic and has found you, Marie Madeleine Diallo, the "Awo" of Golbert Diagne and his wife Mame Sèye left. In this interview she tells us about her long absence, her mother's deaths and her husband, her career, among others …
For some time, you've been off the stage. What does it explain?
I've been waiting for a long time without appearing on the screen, until recently through the Adja series. However, I have to play a few sequences in a series such as "La vie vie" that was released in Joal. I also made a short film with Nicolas Sawalo Cissé, whose name was Blissi Ndiaye. However, I have to say that I was much more withdrawn. My mother and husband were suffering. I had to go out of the placement to look after them. They finally died, my husband in 2014, my mother, a little before. Since then, the few times I've been seen, it's during the Panels period.
Recently, you signed your feedback through the Adja series. How did you get involved?
This was the young Pod who contacted me, by an old friend, Thérèse Cissé, governor secretary of the time. He asked me who could give him my numbers. What I received He called me and said he was looking for a character that would play the role of Adja's mother in the same name series. It took the time to explain the attacks and finally convinced me to join the series. Initially, I was reluctant to start such adventures, it was not at all obvious. He succeeded in our discussions. It must be said that I have also found myself in the character and Adja, in the movie, is a replica of what I was, a very caring wife for her husband , her children, her home, very fine. That's how he came to shoot in "Adja Thamkharit" and the producers asked me for other shootings that they will make soon.
What did you do to reconnect with the camera after this long absence?
It made me feel good to see myself playing again. Without throwing flowers to me, there is always the gesture and the good presence. The test, I received a lot of feedback through social networks, my friends and acquaintances enabled me everywhere to congratulate and encourage me. They disagreed me for saying that I am now and that I'm going to power for the younger ones and tell me that I have always had my place. There are good seeds there, but sometimes we need to see the old ones who made the beautiful days of this art. So, I thought it would be nice to accept playing in the next episodes of "Adja".
It was pulled back because of losing losses. How did you spend your time after bereavement?
I say, since 1999, I have a structure of the name "Dialloré production", which I control. We often make shows, shows. I'll work with a director. I also work with many societies and young artists who can see small sequences in neighborhood films. I'll give my character to me as stairs and I'm curious to help start. Apart from that, I stayed in France with my children and my siblings in Lyon.
Missing her mother and husband at the same time, you must have been tough …
I lived very hard. When my mother was ill, I took her home. He stayed there for a year and a half before he died. Separately, my husband had also wound up. Both of them needed my presence, even if there were mediators, family members, who helped me to sail them. I've lived with my husband since I was 23 years old. We had 43 years of marriage before he died. We were great friends and quite complicated. On the day of his death, he told me he was going to leave. I asked him where? And he told me: "You've understood everything and it's time I left. I'll pissed you away. You have to leave me." I told you he was not going to leave and have to stay by my side because he is the only one I know and live with for years. I was always in the hospitals either with him or with my mother. That's why it was hard for me to think about myself or my career. At one point, I was totally boring. It took me some health and I looked after myself. Some even thought that I was no longer in this world.
He thought you had a low time. Is this a reality?
No in any case! That is the period following my husband's death, I'll let me go a bit. When I lived, my first light when I came up was to make me beautiful, to wear the nines. When he left, I was no longer wearing earrings. I put my body and soul to my husband, now that is no longer in this world, I dedicate myself to God in full. I had the opportunity to go to Mecca in 1999 and since then I have been trying to respect my precepts of my religion. My husband also told me that I had changed and had the impression of living with someone else, after I returned from Holy Places.
Today, did you go to mourn?
I'm grieved, for myself. But in front of my room door, a picture of my husband is posted by my daughter, telling me to say goodbye, when I go out and welcome, after returning. However, we do it especially when we have faith. We say that this happens to everyone, even if we do not know the time or moment. The only alternative is to pray for the rest of their souls. Since then, I've become more pioneering, my friends, my children are shocking me for not separating from my rosary.
What did you stand up to the test?
I am very family. I have very close links with parents. Their luck allowed me to face these trials. I am also very emotional. It must be said that I have always been like that. Expressing my everyday feelings is something that I always have a privilege, even in my family. Like my mother, I've always been Awo (the first girl). I've been for 43 years.
Awo for 43 years until your death separates you. What is your secret?
Neither the other nor the ocular power. Above all, be there for your spouse and nurture. Love is the foundation of every union, so you have to give your best to improve, while improving the other. It is clear that a small escape can not be lost in a couple, but for me, I have even made strength. I've personally discussed, unfortunately, with my husband. It was astonished every time I knew about it and was thinking of how I had done it. However, for me, the most important thing was to know the reasons that led to doing it. We discussed and found common land. I think we have to take life lightly, do not complicate things or stay there to look for the little animal. The opposite creates a gap between the spouse and will not make any difference. Here's how some people lose their love, rather than living intense. Whatever the problems that arise in front of me, I always try to overcome them. Moreover, you have to ask yourself constantly. This is bound to bear fruit.
Nowadays, we have seen an increase in violence due to domestic issues. A woman set her flat on fire, and her husband died after being burned, and another man died on the woman whose husband was about to get married. Both did not agree to have wives. What do you think about these different news stories?
I was surprised that I knew we could not control ourselves until we reached these extremes. This is very simple. When we love someone, we are necessarily jealous, but we have to know how to manage ourselves. In Islam, men have had the opportunity to marry up to four women, so when that happens, you have to know how to get them. Communication needs to be, because it's a light-leading discussion. You can set everything by playing a card on the board. When communication is rare in a couple or family, this is the door open to failure. We are decaying for free life. I do not approve what happened …
What happens to the troupe Bara Yégo?
She's still here. She's there for the needs of those who want to cast. Often, we call on young people who need our expertise. Even if Daouda Guissé needs us to play, he wrote, we would be in the position to do that. Perhaps this is the mode that will be faulty. We must also say that we have lost many comedians: Mame Seye, Serigne Fall, Thiam Dollar, Abdoulaye Ngom, El Hadj Mansour Seck. However, with the last conclusions we had to do, we had strengthened the soldiers. I know that Daouda Guissé (director of the Yuggo Bread troupe) has written many situations he is devoting. He also has his own job, but everyone believes that the group's good thing would be amended. This group has revealed us and allows us to have some fame. We did a lot of advertising with this band and we even managed to push the prices. We seeded the good seeds, at a time when people thought that the theater was a joke. Today, the situation has changed. We are opinion leaders, actors in this society that go down. When your love and values are valued by every side of society, you must behave in an exemplar way.
Have you kept in touch with the actors of the soldiers?
Of course. I told you, when Ndioro Diop, the actress of the trousers, came back from Italy, and she immediately came to see. Soxna lives with me. This is like my adopted daughter. I have a relationship with Alioune Badara Golbert Diagne, the late Mame Seye. Some gave me my children's names.
What do you think about the new wave of comedians?
There's a good thing. Only flowering soldiers who reinforce the vitality of the culture in Senegal. I like to follow a series such as "Idols", "Mbettel", "Pod and Marichou" etc. … Almost every city is a theater trophy and young people will thrive. But what I ask about is to make pieces that can communicate positive messages to this young generation and those parents who do not know where to turn. The state also needs to assist young cultural actors. Some have been able to find money, with Fopica, but many have to do it again.
We see great artists die at all. What do you think and what answers do you recommend?
It hurts to see some artists die in vulnerability. And there's a phenomenon that we are witnessing more and more. At state level, action was taken with the Mutuelle des artistes. Perhaps, we have to try to establish structures to co-opt more money to support bad artists. Financial institutions may be sensitive to this.
Your message to Senegal?
Let everyone worry about asking what he can do over his country and take the merits of his life. It must start with respect to the society in which we live. Increasingly, we see people cheating themselves, always talking about insult through social networks. We have to be able to go beyond and be higher than certain things. It would also be useful to practice the God's Order. From that fan, we will love each other more and we will live better moments under our sun …
