we were growing up it was said that Ekiti is a land of wisdom,
knowledge and understanding. People from Ekiti are naturally endowed
with knowledge and they are very well learned.
Q:Fathers day was marked few days back but you unfortunately lost your dad early this year. What do you miss about him?
A: Without mincing words, i really miss everything about him.

Q:How did you feel about the Father’s Day celebration?
A:
Naturally, i felt very bad but i got consoled with the fact and the
reality that we are all mortals and he already left us to join the
triumphant saints. May his soul continue to rest in peace.
Q:Could you recall how you got inspired and encouraged got into acting?
A: I developed interest in acting in my Teens and principally it was neither for fame nor for stardom.
It
was natural interest , i just love acting and indeed it was a burning
passion. When i finished from the college of education, i ventured into
it. Though i started acting while in school. It was after school i took
a step further by standing in front of the camera as an actress and that
was how it all started.
Q;Were you a member of drama group in school?
A:In
my secondary school days i was in the group. When i was in the college
of education, i was also a member of the school drama group and it was
basically stage dramas.
Q:That means you are a good dancer?
A:Yes, i still dance.
You
are married to a politician and you are an actress. How have you been
coping? I have been coping very fine, is just a matter of understanding
and getting your schedules well planned. When i need to get busy with
his political career, i leave acting. And when i notice his less busy
with political activities, i pick up my acting job. So its just a matter
of planning and schedules properly organized.
Q:Many assumed that your marriage to a politician would naturally signal your sent forth from the acting world?
A: Haba! No, not at all.
Q:Are you back?
Q:yes
of course, i never left, i just took a break off a sort
of marital leave, because that is what most of
our actresses don’t understand . once you are married you need to create
time for your family because that is the time you get to know the
family you married into. I think it is also appropriate to mention here
that am presently working on a new film from the stable of Beauty and
Brain Concept which is my outfit. So, i never left the movie industry.
Q:What specific lessons would be learnt from the movie?
A:
It is movie about marital life, the lives of married people and single
ladies. It is titled Different Strokes For Different Folks. One of the
lessons to be learnt from the movie is the reality that what goes down
well with you might not go down well with me. Therefore, i can’t start
comparing my marriage with yours.
Q:Are you playing any role in the movie?
A:
Of course, i am playing the role of a very funny character, Eri Ife
Oluwa. She was always comparing her marriage to that of her friend and
it almost ruined her.
Q:Let us talk about your husband, Barrister Kayode Oduoye. What do you appreciate in him? Oh! My oga at the top (laughs).
A:What i appreciate in him is his humility and the fact that he has the fear of God.
Q:How supportive has he been?
A:
He has always been there for me and the truth is that you can only
record success in your endeavours when you are blessed with a stable and
peaceful home.
Recently, he gave me a location bus, which was branded in the name of my outfit. He has been supportive.
Q:Who is Mrs.Mosun filani Oduoye?
Mrs .Mosun filani oduoye is a very funny person. Basically, i am an indoor person.
You
have a look-alike daughter who is very smart. Would you like if she
ventures into acting? That depends on her because we are now in the era
where the shout of freedom reigns supreme. We can’t decide for our
children as parents. If they make up their mind and choose a career, all
you have to do is support them. What you can do is to offer advice and
provide guidance. She is outspoken and also very intelligent. She is
just two and half years old.
Q: What was the movie that shot you into limelight?
A: Oh!!! Good memories, I think i got shot into limelight via the role i played in a film and the title was amin ayo.
Q: If you hadn’t been an actress, what would you have been?
A: I would have been a professional dancer. I am naturally an entertainer.
Q: You spoken English is ok, Why have you then not featured in English movies?
A:
I have not been invited for a role in English movies. IF they do, i
would definitely play any role assigned to me. The movie I am currently
working on is more of English that is why the title is different strokes
for different folks.
Q: Do we then expect seeing faces of people from the English section in the movie?
A:
No, not at all. I am using my people who can also speak good English.
Most of us are graduates and so we can speak go English. I dont have to
invite people from the English section.
Q: Could you tell us some of the faces we expect to see in the movie.
A:
I have Femi Adebayo, Ibrahim Chatta, Ronke Odusanya, Ninolowo Bolanle,
Mercy Ebosere, Hallwell Ademola, Mosun Filani Oduoye and others on set.
Q: When would the movie hit the market?
A: I am very sure by middle of july you will start seeing the clips.
