Sultry and sexy Yoruba actress,
Biodun Okeowo known in the industry as Tolani Oshirin or Omobutty recently granted
an interview with Vanguard where she preached against pre-marital sex, how she
married as a virgin and oh yes, her
Well, I will say my hips and eyeballs. God has blessed me with what African men
really like. Even the modern day African man, who pretends to like a skinny
woman, after getting down with her, he would marry a woman who has ample flesh
in the right proportions.
single mother with two kids?
It’s one question I don’t like going deep into for personal reasons. I will
only say God has been faithful. I’m fine and cool as you can see. I am a happy
woman in all ramifications and the envy of other ladies.
the reason for your failed marriage?
We are pencils in the hand of the creator; he knows and directs our lives. My
career has got nothing to do with that.
My broken marriage was a place of learning to me. It taught me to be a better
person and has opened a hidden part of me. Then I was younger but I have learnt
that what will be will be, no matter what.
Fault, who am I to apportion blames or Judge? God knows best. I thank God we
are both doing well in our respective homes.
Presently, I’ll like to remain mute on my marital status but the glaring truth
is that I’m not single.
It simply means I have a man in my life. But what I am not ready to disclose
are details about him. I am not single because I am with a man. Please don’t
ask me any further question on this. I am a very happy woman in love with a man
in my life.
you consider being a second wife?
I won’t break someone else’s home because I don’t want mine to be broken as
well. But then man proposes and God disposes. No one can decide for God. We can
only pray fervently for our wishes. But one thing I don’t joke with is my happiness.
pre-marital sex among our youths?
It is saddening that pre-marital sex has taken over our time. In the past, most
of our men would disassociate themselves with girls who have been deflowered
outside wedlock. Then a woman’s virginity was her pride but time has changed
and human beings have changed. I am not happy about it. Maybe we should blame
civilisation or modernisation for this. I pray for God’s intervention in
Yes, I did and I can boldly say that.
My first experience was full of fear, uncertainty, pain and alas! I loved it at
they see their mum in sensual roles?
I have been working and thinking on that recently. My kids are growing fast and
are very intelligent. For their sake, I am trying not to act dirty or rough,
but at the same time I have to interpret my roles very well, especially if it
is a movie I producing. I also censor the movies they watch, be it mine or
of any movie?
Yes, years back when I was still a novice in the industry. I did some
wishy-washy jobs because I grabbed every job that came my way. Unfortunately
for me those jobs didn’t come out until I have already become an established
actress in the business.
Some of these films were so bad that most of my fans thought I didn’t measure
up to standard. I nearly lost many of them but they didn’t know I did those
films when I was still green in the industry. But I quickly retraced my steps
and in the process, I offended some producers.
motherhood. How do you cope with the stigma of being a single mother?
(Smiles) I only know my status. I only know who I am. (smiles) for Biodun,
she’s the happiest woman on earth. I am comfortable and happy in all ways. No
stigma for me.
My fans should watch out for “Instagram Babe” to be marketed by Corporate
pictures. I love my fans and my God will continue to bless them.
