Nollywood actress Ayandotun Emmanuel popularly called Ayoka Ologede has revealed how her tribal marks have turned into her career signature.
Here is what she told Dupe Ayinla Olasunkanmi recently:
“I didn’t feel threatened by my tribal marks; in fact, people loved me for them,” .
“I was very comfortable with them and they became like a signature for me.”
The veteran actress also said times have changed in terms of promotion of movies.
“Back in the days when I was with Late Herbert Ogunde, when we wanted to promote a movie, we will move round towns in the different states in big bushes where you will see us dancing to the rhythm coming from drums. It was fun back then.
“But all has changed now and everything has gone digital”.
