In an interview with Sunnewsonline, Yemi Blaq talks about his experience so far in the movie industry, his marriage, his fans and so much more while hitting on his high and low points as an actor.
Read excerpts from his interview below.
On his wife: Of course, my wife is very talented and that was a strong source of attraction. I like people who are talented and intelligent and guess what, my wife is super talented and intelligent and she is a very pretty woman; beneath all that beauty is a superwoman!
On relating with his fans: It comes with the job; you don’t even know how but you find out that it just happens. Before you started acting, no one knew you; people didn’t even recognize you. But before you say Jackie Robinson, people are mobbing you wherever you go once you are known.
On the craziest thing a fan has done: I was chilling in Abuja a while ago when this lady showed up at my door completely naked; I mean stark naked taking me completely off guard! I wasn’t at the door so I got someone to open the door. And then the guy was like huh! We were shocked out of our wits because our lady visitor was in her birthday suit; she was totally naked!
On managing fame: The thing with fame is that you eventually get used to it as time goes by. After a while you just realize that you don’t even notice it anymore; it kind of creeps up on you. When you start shooting movie, no one knows you but after a while, you go somewhere and one person out of a hundred get to say, ‘hey! You look familiar and you realize that people are beginning to take notice and before you know it, people are mobbing you where ever you show up! However, it comes with the job so I am not letting it get to my head.
