[Ayofeloaded] Wow… Like u have said, u started acting professionally in 2007, So how did all start for u? As a TV presenter, What are your challenges? In your professions
[OluwatoyinOki] One peculiar thing about an entertainer, is the fact that, you can be gifted more than one area of the arts. Sometimes, if you’re not making progress in one area, another area will sprout out, untill you find your bearings. I started presenting on orisun TV in 2015. The journey is a mixed feeling. It has afforded me the privilege of being popular in the yoruba speaking communities especially in my hometown, which has endeared me to them.
In the area of having a challenge, it is an emotional experience for me, because, several people see me on tv and believe I’m extremely rich. I receive several calls and messages from strangers, asking for financial help, daily. It makes me sad, because, they don’t believe me, when I tell them, I have responsibilities too
There’s a thin line between acting and presentation. From our looks.We must dress and look good to be on air, it is mandatory. Our audience see us as flamboyant and thus,conclude that we are also financially buoyant.
I want readers to know that, we are also working like they are. Because, we are on tv, doesn’t automatically suggest we are extremely rich. This insinuations, I suppose, are majorly, part of the reasons some, actors and actresses live fake lives and even go out of their way to make unlawfully acceptable earnings…That is my major challenge, honestly…
I’m even scared of going to social media a times because, several messages are waiting for me to ask for one help or the other. I pray that God will make me as rich as people think. Lol….Even if I’m rich, I can’t help everyone.
[Ayofeloaded] Hmm God will answer all your prayers…
[OluwatoyinOki] Amen, and you too
