Did you learn under anybody?
When you heard people saying Odunlade Adekola is the father of her first child, what comes to your mind?
I am not always bothered about it because I know it is not true.
I am a movie star, things like that are inevitable. It is very normal for people to carry rumours around especially in the entertainment world. Those are the challenges you will face, you can’t escape them. You hear people lot say negative things about you, but you just have to ignore them.
What was your Odunlade’s reaction about it?
The first time they wrote something about us, I was in UK. I just noticed my friends were hiding their phones, they didn’t want me to see it because they know I would definitely feel bad when I see it. It is normal to feel bad when you hear negative things about you because we are humans.
I felt bad when I saw it. Even my boss Odunlade was like, they have started again ooo. He said Bukky see what they wrote oh. He is my boss and he will always be. We are close because he taught me acting.
A lot of people are curious to know your man...
I just decided to go private about it. It’s personal.
Is he in the industry?
No, he is not in the industry, I just decided not to say anything about him on social media or post his pictures.
What was your parent reaction when they heard?
They also felt bad. As an elderly person they adviced me to tell the world who the father of my kids is to clear the air but I made them understand why I don’t want to put my private life on social media.
Do you think issues like this is why most celebrity marriage don’t last?
Well, I can’t say anything about that.
How do you rest?
I don’t rest ooo.
How many movies have you featured in since you started acting?
I have lost count?
