Dakore’s Younger Brother, Timini Egbuson Talks Being on MTV’s ‘Shuga’, Turning down Advances from Men & More



Timini Egbuson New Shoot BellaNaija 2014 05Dakore Akande’s younger brother Timini Egbuson is new in the movie industry but he is fast making a name for himself in the industry.

Interviewed by Punch Newspaper on Sunday, Timini talks about how he got a role in MTV Base series Shuga, being in the same industry with his sister, his style, getting advances from men and much more.

Read excerpts below!

On his sister Dakore Akande being in Nollywood: She is the first child, while I am the last. She was very supportive but she sounded a note of warning. She told me it was not going to be easy. She is an experienced actor who has been at her craft for many years and I don’t see myself competing with her. Instead of trying to outshine her, I prefer to learn from her.

On his acting skills: I watch a lot of clips on YouTube and I also rely on my talent. My sister’s knowledge and experience has been helpful because she tells me how I can become a respected actor. There are a lot of good people out there and good competition. You have to ensure your talent is outstanding.

On getting advances from men: Yes, I do and because of that, I tend to avoid clothes that give off a certain kind of impression. I like to experiment but within the boundaries of my love for women.

On his style: When I dress, I like to make sure my sexuality is clear. I try to wear things that won’t make anybody doubt I am in love with women.

    It’s weird they ask him about getting advances from men and even more strange that he has to wear clothes to prove his love for women…

    Nah BN, your headline can’t be “Dakore’s younger brother”.
    Would you refer to Dorcas Shola Fapson or any of the other Shuga acts as “someone’s somebody”.
    That could have been left in the body of your article.
    And then first line “Dakore’s Younger brother”. lol

    Stupid question, and even more silly answer. If you’re attractive, you’ll attract people of both genders to some degree. It matters little what you do or wear, and should not bother you if you’re secure in your own sexuality.

    Lol ..I totally agree. The young man needs to work with a pr team to make sure that he gets out of his sisters shadow.

    Denial (the Nile) is not just a river a
    In Egypt. Looks to me like someone is going to have to try harder to fight the “demons that possess” him.

    I blame man’s intolerance and ignorance for the spectacular amount of self loathing on display here. Learn to love yourself brother, that’s the most important lesson that life will ever teach you.

    Do any Nigerian actors get proper training for their craft nowadays? I always wondered it but he seems to be saying he learns how to act from YouTube. Wtf? Sounds like he needs to give more dues to his “attractiveness” to both genders and good ol’ nepotism.
