Latest Interview: “I know the daughter of whom i am”Tell us about growing up?
Growing up was fun, I remember my song book was like my diary, my experiences were written as songs. I laugh when I read them. I also remember remixing popular music and sing alongside my sister. It made us really happy. We had so much fun.
How easy was it for you to play the role of Salewa?
No role is ever easy, and Salewa was definitely one role that took me completely out of myself.
It wasn’t an easy one. I had to switch to a local Yoruba dialect to enable me play Salewa convincingly. I immersed myself in the character. I went in search of the diction. I actually went to the market to meet with women from that tribe. I was taught how to speak like them and I practiced. It was a lot of fun so I enjoyed it regardless of the challenge. Thanks to the directors, they were quite patient with me.
I went to the market, where I knew a lot of Ilorin people were based. I stayed with them for a week pretending to be a research student. I asked a lot of questions and they were willing to teach a lot about their language and culture. I also observed them. That helped a lot too.

Wanano is highly influenced by the 60s swing style. It’s all about a girl who is unsure about what she feels for a particular boy.
I love music; I started by composing and writing my own songs a long time ago. Music and acting for me is the package. It’s performing arts. Your talents are God-given and He expects you to use them. I love music as much as I love acting. That’s who I am. It’s not an experiment; it’s what I know that I can do very well. I’ll keep working hard till it yields fruits. I’m not alone in this. God is in support; my team knows my strengths and believes in me.
