March 19, 2017 – Eniola Badmus: Why I Stopped Acting Yoruba Movies
This is what Eniola Badmus told City People on why she hasn’t been featuring in Yoruba movies….
A lot of people didn’t know that I started from English movies. I started acting about 16 or 17 years ago. Officially, lets say 16 years ago. So I actually started from English later I crossed to Yoruba.
At some point in 2010, a producer actually called me from the English sector. I have always been friends with them. Asides from me doing Yoruba films, I still have my friends over there with whom I relate well.
The guy was like okay Eniola, it seems we have a movie role for you. Can you just come over. After that some other guys called me. Simoney called me. With Simoney, I did Black Berry Babes. All of them were just calling me and calling me”
My career is important to me. I am enjoying what I do. What matters to me is my career. What matters to me is me going forward. Though they like me. They also wanted me to feature in Yoruba movies but I got attracted to the English movies.
Its just opportunity. I saw the opportunity and I grabbed it. I guess its because I relate well with people, this has helped my career. I feel that for you to make it in this sector you have to be humble, you have to relate well with people. People say I am very humble, no airs about me.
Its all about the job. I relate with everybody. Its been a wonderful experience. I have made good money from acting in the English sector.
Things I couldn’t do before now I can do. I travel. I live well and I have good investments. So I can concentrate on my career. I am not really there yet. I am not quite where I would like to be”.
