Star Nollywood Actress – Bimbo Akintola who has been off The Acting Grid for a while in a new interview with Punch Newspaper says she does not accept every script that comes her way just for the sake of acting.
The veteran actress disclosed that she only falls for stories which have meaning to her—and would have a positive impact.
“It is not a matter of rebranding! It is a matter of believing in something. I started talking to myself that I am tired of being in every movie that doesn’t say anything. I decided I want to be part of movies that say something and I choose my script now. We as actors have a duty to Nigeria, because we are known, so people use that popularity to make a difference. So with me, I am only doing stories that mean something to me,” she said.
According to her, she used her break from the movie scene to work on herself by hitting at the gym on regularly.
“I just exercise, I do a lot of exercise. I am a regular person at the gym and they would tell you that I am usually there by 5:40am. But since I have started shooting, I have had to stop.”
“I am a very simple person. I love my Mum to bits; she is the most important person in my life. I have friends who have been my friends for over 20 years. I love cooking, I love singing. I believe in God Almighty. I like being part of younger people’s lives; I like to help because I know that I’m not just here for show, I’m doing something to help somebody else,” she elaborated.
