The Nollywood actress Ronke Odusanya was amused when a fan insisted on addressing her by the name of a character she played years ago.
Ronke, in a post on Instagram, said she ran into the fan who refused to believe that her real name was not Flakky Ididowo, a character she played in a movie of the same name.
The fan, apparently, had failed to draw a line between the character and the actress. But the anonymous fan may not be totally to blame, as the movie was so successful that the name stuck to Ronke and became her moniker.
However, the actress is reportedly not at all comfortable with the moniker as it connotes promiscuity.
Other actors whose famous characters have overshadowed their real life persona are Taiwo Hassan whom many know as Ogogo; Ronke Ojo (Ronke Oshodi-Oke); and Kunle Makinde Tokunbo (Dejo Tufulu).
