It’s heartwarming to see industry colleagues forming real relationships!
Kemi Lala Akindoju and OC Ukeje are good friends, and that was apparent at the A-List actor’s wedding last year, where Lala was a ‘groom’s maid’.
The actress spoke to Tribune recently about her breakout role on Tinsel, her hobbies, how she copes in a male-dominated industry and more!
Here are some excerpts:
How do you cope in a male dominated industry?
I don’t see myself as a woman, I see myself as a person. If I want to do something, I just do it. I don’t know about coping but I thrive on multi-tasking and as for me, the essence of who I am is doing all these things at the same time, for me I don’t think anything is impossible. I never say never, and I don’t take no for an answer.
You caused an uproar on twitter last year for being OC Ukeje’s best man, why did you decide to be his best man?
I wasn’t his best man, I was his groom’s maid. Which is a merger of a groom’s man and a bride’s maid and OC Ukeje is my bestie, he is my guy and so, when your guy is getting married, you wear a suit. We have been planning that wedding day for years, and we had agreed that I will wear a suit to his wedding and not a dress, and when he finally chose a wife, she knew that I was going to put on a suit at their wedding.
I didn’t stand behind him, I was on the train with the guys, just that I wore a suit. I cannot even imagine wearing a dress to OC’s wedding, Why would I?, he is my ride or die guy.
