Actress and model, Ronke Tiamiyu who turned a year older today, Monday, October 10, has said that she thought she would be in a Banana Island mansion at 32.
Ronke Tiamiyu, who is also ex-beauty queen and actress hit stardom after clinching the Miss Charismatic crown at the 2013 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN).
In the Snap she shared, 32 year old Ronke Tiamiyu said she’s been humbled by life, feels so old and still “on the street”.
Her post reads: “I feel so old. I can’t cry, let me just laugh. I thought I would be in my Banana Island mansion at 32. Life humbled me. God is still dey the street o. Answer your girl.”
Recall that Ronke Tiamiyu had expressed her disenchantment with the entertainment industry even as much as she loves what she does.
In a chat with Potpourri, she said the only thing that turns her on is the ability to be creative and express herself in different dimensions.
“To be able to step into a character’s shoes and bring her to life,” she said.
On what turns her off: “What turns me off is all the drama and gossip that surrounds the industry. The negative stereotypes people place on you because you are succeeding. Entertainment is a serious and successful business not unlike many other industries, but you never see this level of hatred, jealousy, drama and gossip in other businesses.”
On the difficulty of entertainers finding true love. Ronke Tiamiyu said it applies to everyone but admits it is a bit testy for entertainers
“I think it’s hard for anyone to really find true love, not just entertainers. The difference is that our personal and dating lives have become public news whereas other people in other businesses get to live their love lives outside of the public’s eye. When we date, fall in love, have a lover’s fight, get our hearts broken, it’s all over the gossip sites. This fact probably does make it a little harder to date in entertainment because you have to keep your guard up,” she said.
Apart from owning her own pageant called Miss Charismatic Nigeria pageant, Ronke Tiamiyu has made the cover of House of Maliq and has featured as a guest star in Flatmates as well as many shows.
