In an interview with The Punch, she added that she handles the challenges at this stage in her career by employing patience to eliminate toxicity from her life.

In her words:

"As an actress, producer, and director, my primary challenge includes navigating relationships and finding true love. Sometimes, people are attracted to my status and my profession, rather than the essence of who I am. Distinguishing genuine connections from those based on fame is often a delicate task."

The role interpreter also said that playing romantic roles is quite challenging for her, especially when it involves kissing and touching.

Laide Bakare stated:

"Portraying romantic roles, especially scenes that involve kissing and touching, pose unique challenges. Navigating the authenticity required for such moments, while maintaining professionalism, can be intricate. Balancing the demands of the script with personal comfort adds complexity to those roles, requiring a nuanced approach to ensure a convincing, yet respectable performance."

Furthermore, the mother of three spoke about the highlights of her career, noting that her first role was major for her, which she still remembers. She said:

"The best part of my career started with my first big role, bringing me fame and recognition at the Thema Awards in 1999. Winning the award for Best Up-and-Coming Actress at that time was a game-changer. My name has been relevant in the industry ever since."
