“My father was never in support of my decision to become an actress, he was always against it. He did not support me till about two years ago. Back then, whenever I visited him and people began to hail me, shouting, Fathia Balogun, he would say, ‘Please don’t do that in my house; just go and do your thing out there’.
But recently when he visited me and was watching one of my films, Simisola Otelemuye, he did not know when he began to say to himself that his daughter is intelligent. I was not around but I was told he was saying it out loud and when I came back, my siblings told me that daddy was so happy about my movie.
