Nollywood actress, Bimbo Ademoye, has recounted how movie producers wanted to take advantage of her curvaceous physique during the early stages of her career.
In an interview with The Sun Newspaper, Bimbo claimed that filmmakers wanted to stereotype her to sexual roles.
According to her, filmmakers wanted her to play slutty roles in movies because of her sexy body but she declined.
The movie star, finally got her big break, when award-winning filmmaker, Uduak Isong gave her the first opportunity to showcase her talent and since then her career has skyrocketed.
She said, “Everybody wanted to make use of my body. Everybody wanted me to play the sexy secretary or the girl that snatched someone’s husband, or the one that snatched the other person’s boyfriend.
But it was Uduak Isong that took a chance on me. She gave me a role different from what I was used to and since then, it has been amazing. People started calling me to come and act in this comedy role, come and feature in this and that. It has really been very wonderful since then.”
No wonder Bimbo Ademoye went all out for Uduak Isong on her birthday in April.
