Popular Nollywood actress and model, Bimbo Ademoye has revealed how supportive her father has been of her acting career.
She shared this in a recent chat with YouTuber, Hawa Magaji, as she opened up about her personal life and career.
Bimbo disclosed that her first salary as an actress was N12,500 (Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Naira), and the producers told her that she will be paid six months after filming.
She said her father decided to step in and handled the shooting budget of N50,000 so she could feature in the movie.
The 31-year-old actress also spoke about her battle with low self-esteem issues which has degenerated into anxiety.
“If I’m in a room with more than 10 people, I start to have an anxiety attack. I think my social anxiety came from having low self-esteem issues growing up, not being with my parents. I grew up with this thought in my head that nobody wanted to be around me.
“I don’t really like human beings because I feel like they are full of shit based on my experience. Most times I love to be by myself. I’d rather not deal with the hurt that people tend to bring. I’d rather just be on my own and just be around the few people that I’ve given access to me.
“I’m still dealing with that even at this stage. That’s why I’m very close to my dad because [he] was very big on helping me with that. I wet the bed for a long time. I’m talking about SS2 and SS3. My dad laughed it off.
My first ever acting gig, they told me they were going to pay me N12,500 and they were going to pay me six months after shooting. My dad paid for my shooting budget of N50,000 during the shoot.”
