An intimidating figure, a litany of movie appearances and commendations, when you throw in a unique acting aptitude, what you get is Opeyemi Adetunji.
Acting has always been Opeyemi’s first love. The actress who has featured in movies like Mopelola, Omo Alhaja 2, Omo Ijoba, to mention just a few, told TheNewsGuru that she has always wanted to be an actress.
“I have always had passion for acting. So it was a case of me deciding pursuing my passion for acting.
I was kind scared and timid when I went for my first audition. I was accompanied by a friend who really encouraged me”.
Opeyemi isn’t one to undermine the challenges she encounter on her voyage to the top. Being visible and getting roles has been her challenges so far
“Being visible and getting roles has been a challenge. I know that it’s only a matter of time.The pay is fair for now. When you are passionate about a craft, you won’t think about the money as long as you are happy doing it”.
Tales of sexual harassment is rife in the entertainment industry globally. The Osun state born actress said whenever she gets any hint of sexual harassment, she would quit.
“Sexual harassment is my limit. If it gets out of hand and i can’t control it. I will gladly quit. It is not a do or die affair”.
The journey to success is often filled with thorns and detours,with many throwing in the towel just before the taste of success. Opeyemi has experienced her own fair share of such thorns.
