Nollywood Actor, Olatayo Amokade, popularly known as Ijebu, says before fame, he faced a lot of rejections and worked as a generator repairer.
NEWSCASTARS.COM learnt that he told The Punch, “I actually started my career as a generator repairer. I faced a lot of rejections but they only made me stronger and led me to where I am today.
“Before joining Nollywood, I was a very determined person. I always made good use of all the opportunities that came my way.”
On how he avoid controversies, the actor said, “The question is, can one really avoid controversy? Even if one tries hard to stay away, it would somehow navigate to one. That is one big disadvantage of social media. I just always try my best to distance myself from any drama.”
If he could reject any movie role, he said, “As an actor, I would project any role given to me to the best of my ability, even if it is x-rated.”
