I feel uncomfortable going out without a car – Actress Damilola Adegbola

In recent interview with TheNewsGuru, Nollywood Actress Damilola Adegbola talks about her passion for acting.

Damilola Adegbola is a role interpreter who is talented. Many would remember her for the brilliant role she played in the movie,  ‘Ewo Nife’.

How did your acting journey begin?

I started acting professionally in the year 2010.A friend introduced me to Taiwo Oduala.

I was with him for a while. I featured in some projects while I was with him. Then I proceeded to join the Yoruba caucus by registering with Adebayo Tijani. I produced my own movie( Ewo Nife) in the year 2017, which was directed by Adebayo Tijani.

What was your childhood like?

My childhood was fun with my peers. I have always loved acting as a young girl. You know the mummy and daddy roles we play as kids.

What has being in the limelight robbed you of?

You know, I can’t do some things anymore. I saw a cloth that was hung at a shop and being who I am, I wanted to go get the cloth and the next thing I heard was “Is that not the lady in the film I watched recently”

The same thing happened at idumota. I feel uncomfortable going out without a car because of unnecessary drama. I let somethings go because the other person does not have anything to lose.

I also have to be mindful of what I wear, how I look and which could be tiring sometimes. People expect so much from me all the time.

Who inspires you in Nollywood?

I would go for Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and Funke Akindele. They are great women.

What makes you cry?

I cry when I feel used, cheated on, taken for granted, and of course when is lose a loved one.

What would you say about the injection of porn into Nollywood movies?

I don’t think it is right. Apart from the fact that we are actors, we are Africans too and we have a culture which we hold dearly. It is better to leave the whites to do their thing while we do ours. We can still drive home our points without porn.
