Toke Makinwa, BN TV

Looks like Media Personality and best-selling author Toke Makinwa is adding another feather to her cap as she takes on Nollywood.

The author shared a post on her Instagram page announcing she’s pursuing a career in acting as she starts shooting a major role in a feature film tomorrow.

She wrote:

So I’m going to be in a movie ? guys ???? no be waka pass o ??? “I’ve had a few cameos here and there in the past and I have a lot of respect for actors and film makers0. #Issabigdeal.

A major production coming your way soon and filming starts tomorrow morning. I feel extremely blessed and highly lifted? so overwhelmed with Gods goodness. This year has been soooooo busy and fulfilling guys, God has really opened doors for me and my prayer for everyone out there is that God brings you into your season too. Don’t give up, don’t lose hope too. You are closer than you know ❤️

Who knows, she may be the next movie star out of Nigeria!

    Although she has being acting for so long in real life, I doubt she will make a good actress because she seems like one who will want to impress the audience and end up over acting.
    The best actresses are the ones who are never fearless about being real in the act, whatever it takes.

    Funke akindele and Genevieve for instance never wake up with makeup on their faces thinking we wont notice or wear high heel in the kitchen while cooking.

    Hmmmm…multiple sources is not a bad idea! Its just, and i say just,if you want to do something, why not do it right? Acting classes. Dont know if she has done them, if she has good, but don’t just do it cos its the next available stream. My 2 cents

    Well, I’m certain she’ll do better than some of the current crop of Nigerian “actors”.

    I started watching Naija films about 13 years ago, and I must admit to missing some of the old crop of actors because many of the new actors are horrible, the production quality has definitely improved but the storylines and the actors have not… I hope Toke will do the right thing and practice and study the art form if she intends to stick with this. More power to her!!!
