Foray into acting.
I started acting when I was nine year-old, but professionally, it is 12 years now. It is what I love to do, I’ve got passion for it. My first major role was in Itakun, a movie by Muyideen Salsiliu. I have also featured in movies like Omo Iyami, Ife Foju, Mo nbowa Olorun, Aye Jobele, Ale Ariwo, Agbalamo, Owo O Mago and so on. The challenges I faced were, having to go to locations without being called and ending up not working or appearing in few scenes. There were times when I was not paid a kobo.
Personal philosophy of life.
Do good, be strong, be understanding and always apply logic.
I am half-nice, half-naughty and fun to be with. I can’t keep friends for long. I love to be myself and above all, I’m unique.
Definition of style.
Hmm! I wear anything I’m comfortable in. I love wearing whatever brings out the celebrity in me. I sometimes follow fashion trend, especially if it is not too crazy. Most times, my mood depends on what I wear.
I brush my teeth, bathe and wash my face often. I apply make-up and that is it. I use Mac and Mary Kay beauty products.
Choice of accessories.
I wear accessories but not all the time. I love Aldo accessories; bags, shoes and so on.
I like Princess Latifat Lamolliate of Ravissant Mode int’l and Yomi Casual.
YSL, Midnight Fantasy and Kenzo .
Well, I guess those who wear it are comfortable in it, so my opinion can’t change anything. As a matter of fact, I wear stuffs like that too. The funniest part of it is that my husband buys them for me so, I guess it depends on individuals and how good you feel when you wear such dresses.
What I won’t be caught dead wearing.
I wear anything.
Most expensive item in my wardrobe.
That should be my wedding dress.
Secret of beauty.
Happiness is the secret of my beauty. I try to be happy no matter what I am going through.
Coping with male fans.
I handle them with maturity and keep some of them as friends.
Tattoo or piercing.
None of the above oo! I don’t like them at all. I can never pierce or tattoo my body. I am not saying that it is not good but personally, I don’t like them.
I got married to my footballer husband, Rasaq Omotoyossi five and a half years ago. He plays for Zamalek FC, Cairo. We are blessed with three children.
Advice to women on how to stay young and beautiful.
As I said earlier, happiness is the key. When you are happy at all times, it will definitely reflect on your skin. Happiness is not about having millions or billions, it is about being contented. About staying young! I don’t know because I am a baby o! But to remain a baby, be happy always.
What I will like to change about myself.
Nothing. I’m okay with the way I am.
Greatest physical asset.
My eyes are my greatest physical assets. Though it is not clear enough but I love the colour, it is sparkling brown and how I squint them off glasses. It looks as if I wear contact lens.
To my fans.
I love them all and I am begging them to support me till I get there, Bose Alao Omotoyossi will always love them!
