“Went back home to give the award to my award. My biggest supporter, my rock, my back home. My father. Met his absence, but I knew exactly where he’d be (He loves chilling with the boys in the hood when he’s less busy on Sunday). My da took me to my first audition and waited for 6 hours till I was done. My hood produced all the characters that have made you guys laugh. From Iya Barakat to Todowedo, to Selina. I’ve had to mimic someone from the hood to give those characters life. My name is Bimbo Ademoye, Ademoye Adekunle’s daughter, Ari’s aunty, and I’m from Ebutte Meta. Born and bred in the hood. There are so many people I’d love to appreciate. I’m prepping my speech guys”.
