Courteous actress, Biodun Okeowo of ‘Tolani Oshinrin’ fame, is unarguably one of the actresses swiftly expanding in profile in Nollywood. The graduate of Communication Arts from Lagos State University has good talents in interpreting movie roles. And coupled with her alluring beauty, titillating looks and intelligence, she emerges one of the most-sought-after actresses in the Yoruba variety of Nollywood. However, nine years ago when her acting voyages started, she was to choose between her career and family. While at the University, she was put in the family way, but she managed to complete her studies. Shortly after her education, her marriage was troubled and she was left all alone to cater for her two kids. Before that time, she had started acting and she was left with two options; to quit her low-income paying acting job or secure a plum job in other industries.
But with the help of her mum who looked after her kids, she was determined to pursue her dream- acting, without minding the price she would have to pay until she gets there. Times without number, she battled with sexually molestation and allegations, but they never drew her back. Looking back, she said: “The truth about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring me to this very moment. And this is the moment I can choose to make everything new….”
Today, beyond the footlights, the delectable actress is enjoying the moment financially and fame wise. With a heart full of gratitude, she recently posted this on her Facebook timeline: “That you Elshadai for bringing me this far….Today makes 9yrs of my sojourn into the movie world….Thanks to all my fans, friends, family, the Love of my life, my lovely kids and my Sweet Mother!”
