A fast rising Nollywood actress and award nominee of the City People Movie Award for Fastest Rising Actress, Adekemi Taofeek, has uncovered that she doesn’t date young men who might incline toward the use of condom to keep her from getting pregnant.
The Ini Edo look alike revealed to Punch that she liked to date men since men, as indicated by her, don’t flee from obligation.
“I don’t do boys but I do men because a boy is someone that cannot take responsibilities. A man is someone who can handle anything that comes out of the relationship. For instance, I can’t date a boy who I would have to use a condom with to prevent me from getting pregnant because he is not ready for a baby yet. But a man is up to the task and if I tell him I am pregnant, he would start making plans to marry me”, she said
The Abeokuta, Ogun State born cross-over thespian, who has been around in the make-believe industry for about eleven years, also considers acting in the English-speaking movies more financially rewarding than in the Yoruba-speaking ones.
According to her, “Back then, when I was still acting in English-speaking movies and I was practically a nobody, I usually got paid anytime I was on location. The English-speaking movie sector is well organised but I don’t know if they are still that way. But in the Yoruba movie sector, you have to learn under a boss. I won’t say I prefer the English-speaking movies to Yoruba ones, but in terms of money, English is far better.”
She commended Nollywood for what she regarded as steady improvement and growth in the industry.
