The rich girlfriend of musician Mr Eazi, Temi Otedola has been featured in a new role in an upcoming movie and this is something we are going to see more from her.
The movie is dubbed Citation and was written and produced by Kunle Afolayan. Temi spoke in an interview to reveal what her new passion is going to be all about.
Here’s what she said: “I have been watching Mr Afolayan’s films like forever. From ‘Figurine’ to ‘October 1’, ‘Phone Swap’, and I was actually introduced to him, I told him that from university and through school I have always been into acting and that was my first passion in life and he told me about a script coming out and the lead character is actually a girl of my age and a university student and the story tells a tale of something that is so relatable and relevant to what is happening today, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.
The lead character is a girl of my age and in the university while also creating a global issue that confronts women. So it is a story that is close to my heart, and I thought I could really bring that story to life,” she said.
Answering a question about why she’s kept the creative side of her life from the public for so long, she said;
“For me, it’s all about timing, so, for me until this movie proposal had come, I don’t think I would have entered into this arena of creative work, but this script is perfect for me. I’m so happy that I waited for this time. With Kunle Afolayan’s film, it means I am starting at the top. So, I’m just so humbled to have been given this opportunity. The message is to tell women that we are hearing their stories, that we believe them. Women are being harassed in several ways.
Both of them are still very close to my heart; I will always be designing and doing fashion, but also, this is my one true love. So I’ll continue acting.”
