Nollywood actress, Omowunmi Ajiboye has opined that marriages between entertainers are often the best.
She said this while speaking in a recent interview as gathered by NEWSCASTARS.COM. Read below:
I had a wonderful childhood and I was happy. Though we did not have everything but we made do with what we had and there was love in our family. I recall that I used to run races in school and it always made me so happy.
As regards my future ambitions, I just wanted to be a business person. I loved business and I felt I would become a businesswoman.
For my elementary education, I attended the Christ Apostolic Church Gbomi Nursey and Primary School. For my secondary education, I went to Osogbo Grammar School, popularly called Osogram.
I went on to attend Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara State, for my tertiary education.
I was introduced to the movie industry by someone called Excel. I was still schooling at the Federal Polytechnic, Offa at the time. I really cannot remember, title of the first movie I featured in but it was a nice experience.
My parents were supportive of my career. They only advised me to complete my education and to always remember the child of who I was.
In the early days of my career, I faced a lot of challenges, and I think that is only normal. Irrespective of the career one is involved in, there would always be challenges as nothing good comes easy. I recall that when I first got into the industry, I was usually embarrassed. Whenever I wanted to board the bus used at locations, they usually barred me, saying I was neither a crew member nor a well known actor.
I have made many sacrifices in the course of my career, so I cannot say which one is the biggest.
That was 2007 when I produced my first movie, Ma Jo Ko (Don’t Sit).
Some of the most important lessons I have learnt in the course of my career are patience, humility, hard work, courage and commitment. For one to succeed in the movie industry, one has to be committed to what one is doing. Success does not come in a day, so one must be consistent and never give up. It is also important to work hard and to give one’s career one’s best.
Producing a movie is definitely not for the faint-hearted. It is very challenging because one has to take a lot of factors and some of them are beyond one’s control. One has to make sure that everything is okay with the cast and crew, and also take care of other elements of production.
I have lost count of the number of movies I have acted in but they include Aayo Elemu, Oriki Ife, Akudaya, Olukoni, Abara Meji, Aburo Mi, Caro-phobia, Fisayo Alagbara, Eniyan, Kini Mose, Kayefi Nla, Ayanfe Mi, Khadijat, Omo Prof, Olugbeja (Defender), Folashade Gold, Osha Pra Pra and Ounje Ajeku.
I have had the opportunity to play so many roles, so there is no particular role that I want that I have not acted. I thank God for giving me the grace to have done so much in my career.
The current project I am working on is titled, Arodan. It would be shown in cinemas when it is done.
I used to be very hot tempered before but that has changed now as I have to be very careful about how I behave because I am a role model to some people. Also, before, I could eat while walking on the street. But, I cannot do that anymore.
I am a very jovial person. I play a lot of board games, especially Ludo, with my friends. I also pray a lot at home.
I admire Sola Sobowale, Jide Kosoko and Joke Silva.
As actors, marrying one another is the best because you would understand each other well. There wouldn’t be any problem at all.
I love my husband because he is creative, intelligent, smart and handsome.
My relationship with my co-wife is peaceful and friendly.
