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.
