Temi Otedola who is set to make her acting debut in a movie by Kunle Afolayan reveals in new interview that she has always been passionate about acting.
The fashion entrepreneur stated that she has always been into acting while she was in school and it has always been her first passion.
Explaining how fate brought her back to her first love, she said:
“I have been watching Mr. Afolayan’s films like forever. From ‘Figurine’ to ‘October 1’, ‘Phone Swap’, and I was actually introduced to him, I told him that from university and through school I have always been into acting and that was my first passion in life and he told me about a script coming out and the lead character is actually a girl of my age and a university student and the story tells a tale of something that is so relatable and relevant to what is happening today, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.”
On why she took up the role, she explained that she could relate deeply with the character she will be playing. She explained,
“the lead character is a girl of my age and in the university while also treating a global issue that confronts women. So it is a story that is close to my heart, and I thought I could really bring that story to life.”
On leaving fashion for acting, Temi said she will be doing both. “Both of them are still very close to my heart; I will always be designing and doing fashion, but also, this is my one true love. So I’ll continue acting,” she said.
