Talented veteran actress Bimbo Akintola has within the space of time created a name for herself in the entertainment industry.
For a while, Bimbo was missing in action from the screen for reasons best known to her. However in a recent interview with The Punch Newspaper, she discuss about herself and the reasons she has been off the screen.
“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.
On how she lost so much weight, Bimbo hinted that she hits the gym everyday. “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.”
She also revealef her real self: “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.”
