Adedoja speaks on Nollywood
In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng' Owolawi Taiwo, the Oyo princess spoke on what prompted her to join Nollywood.
In her words:
"I’d always wanted to act, I used to act back in secondary school. My friends from school(both University and secondary) know about how passionate I am about acting. Unfortunately, I haven’t pursued it. Maybe I was waiting for the right time. I heard about Uncle Kunle Afolayan’s new project from Baba TK(Tunde Kelani), he introduced me to him and I was called for an audition."
Adedoja also spoke on if joining Nollywood has changed how she views actors.
"I have always respected actors, being a lover/fan of movies, but I respect them more now knowing how much time and effort they put into their craft."
