- Actor Tee Famous is hustling hard and trying out other avenues to make money
- The movie star has taken a shot to become the next big thing in the music industry
- Tee Famous already has a viral song, Wahala, that has caught the attention of music lovers
Celebrities in the Nigerian entertainment industry are well aware of the dangers of being stagnant and this is why many of them try to get involved with other creative endeavours.
One move star who is shooting his shot and making a transition from Nollywood to the music scene is Oluwatobiloba Abraham better known as TeeFamous.
Like other colleagues in the past who have tried to make the switch from acting to singing, Teefamous is also taking on the challenge even though the success rate of such career decisions is often widely contested.
For instance, movie star Genevieve Nnaji, Jim Iyke, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Tonto Dikeh, Patience Ozokwo to name a few have all tried their hands at music at some point but they all fell back to acting.
However, it appears TeeFamous has learnt from the mistakes of those before him and he intends to use their experiences to tread the path carefully.
Interestingly, the young man is not doing badly as his latest single, Wahala, seems to have grabbed the attention of music lovers.
An interesting compilation captured a number of young kids vibing to the song which tells listeners to make the best of life regardless of what is happening around them.
Similarly, actress and senior colleague, Jaiye Kuti, was also spotted in a video busting serious moves to the music single.
Some fans were spotted hailing the actor/singer in the comment section.
"Problem no Dey finish ooo."
"Walai this song sweet gan."
In a brief chat with Legit.ng, the singer explained what motivated his single, Wahala.
"Well, I just felt I should sing something that could get people out of the whole mood of Lockdown, Covid-19, End Sars Protest and all of those things... Then to also use the song to advise people that no matter what we are going through, we just need to keep moving on cause basically, Problem No Fit Finish..."
Teefamous also said it hasn't been easy combining acting and singing. He, however, said he doesn't intend to leave one for the other.
In his words:
"It hasn't been easy though but, I can say it's been God yeah. Cause combining the two isn't easy at all, and I am not even ready to drop anyone for anyone. Even though, it's been affecting themselves yeah, some of my movie people are actually feeling I don't act again like I wanna face music alone, which I have to keep explaining to so many that I am still doing movies and I am not stopping."
Finally, here's what he had to say when asked about what fans should expect from him in 2021.
"My Fans should expect a lot from me this year tho. I am planning on releasing an EP with amazing music videos. Then also working on my Web series which will start showing soon."
We wish TeeFamous well in his endeavours.
