Bimbo Oshin-Ola Ibironke needs no introduction in the movie industry in Nigeria at a point in her career, she was off the stage and during that period there were conflicting stories about her professional career, the top actress is now back in the industry and better, doing what she knows how to do best, in a recent chat with a local celebrity magazine, City people, she talked about her life career and others.
When asked her assesment in the movie industry, she said I started acted in 1996. I just had a passion for it but I didn’t know I was going to get this far. I give God the glory, So far so good. At home, when I was younger, my brother and I used to get a tape recorder and does drama sketch. We used to do that in the house. From that the passion for acting just started. I was in school one day when a friend of mine who was in LASU came to my room and said she met Araosan and he did audition and said I do want to go into it. I was like Whoa! It’s not a bad idea. Out of curiosity, I followed her, we did the audition and from there I stated going for rehearsals just to brush up.
She narrated that the movie Akobi bought her in limelight in 1997/1998. It was after this that I started falling in love with the profession. After Akobi other people called me for jobs and decided to start off big time. I realized it won’t be a bad idea to act. Because that was how I started. My friend took me to Araosan and I started from there but along the line I did some soap operas with Tunji Bamishingbin, Deji Adenuga, Super Story, I have done 2 or 3 English movies. She also said that I am compatible with both yoruba and english movie. I give glory to God. Without him I am nothing. I thank my husband too.
He has always been there for me. He is my pillar. He tells me what to do and what not to do. It is God. It is not by own doing. I know when to draw the line between work and home. I love the institution of marriage a lot. I respect it. It’s all about balancing the two roles. I am a working mother. He is very intelligent. I love intelligent people. The first time we met, he threw me off my feet. We started from there. He is a perfect gentleman. You know what I mean. He is very honest. He is very humble, easy going. He is God fearing.
