My Size Gets Me Good Nollywood Movie Roles – Allwell Ademola
By Samuel Olajide, Saturday Beats
Nollywood big beauty, Allwell Ademola, is still excited over the recent childbirths in the movie industry.
Revealing what prompted her viral thanksgiving video, Ademola told Saturday Beats;
“I feel good about the childbirths in Nollywood. I am happy for my colleagues. Next year, we will be celebrating a lot of birthdays for these babies. I am excited that most of those babies were born in August; my birth month. I feel good.”
Nollywood stars such as Toyin Abraham, Ronke Odusanya, Tunde Owokoniran and Ruth Kadiri were blessed with new babies in August.
Contrary to what many may think, the actress insisted that being a plus–size actress gets her movie roles.
“My size gets me roles and that is the truth. We all cannot be small sizes. Variety, they say, is the spice of life. If we are all slim, who will play the plus-size roles? My size gets me good roles.”
The actress also stated that her size inspired her decision to start a clothing line.
“Most plus-size ladies find it difficult to get what suits them. I decided to make designs that suit me, knowing that when plus -size ladies see the designs on me, they will be persuaded to patronise me; and I will also be answering a lot of prayers. After I started, people advised that we shouldn’t just do plus-sizes; we should do regular sizes,” she said.
On what drives her, Allwell said it is God. She added,
“God is my driving force. I am a naturally restless person, despite my size. I love to be active at all times.
With the talent God has given me, I feel I should be able to do more. To whom much is given, much is expected. I’m an actress, and also a singer. I love fashion too, so I decided to become an entrepreneur.”
