Spread the love

If you ask Any keen observer of trends in Nollywood to point to

an actress that should be crowned queen

of the core Nollywood acting skies, you are

sure that the observer will point at the

popular Nollywood actress, Funmilayo Adelusi Paloma .

The Sociology and Anthropology

graduate of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University,

Awka is undoubtedly a leading actress in

the sector.

An actress of vast credit and extraordinary

beauty who has had more than a steady

run in the movie since she joined the

industry in 2004, Funmilayo has continued to

reign over the Nigerian home video scene

and has outlasted a few of her peers in

terms of sustained relevance at the apex,

not only because of her grace, beauty,

artistic carriage and devotion to the job,

but because the Ekiti State born

actress is simply a naturally talented


Generally viewed as a gem that has

remained unshaken and unbeatable,

And In every movie I take part in,

there must be something memorable about

it. And I watch most of them over and over

again to see what I have done and how I

can improve on my next job

You have been walking tall off and on


In fact an entertainment website

recently named you the reigning queen of


What is the secret?

My relationship with God is the secret. I

think what has kept me going in the

industry is prayers and the fact that I really

have passion for the job. Again if you ask

all those I have worked with, I am sure

they will attest to the fact that I take my

work seriously no matter what role I am

given to play. I started with the popular

saying that ‘no role is too small’ and I

have kept at that. Again, I also do my best

to interprete my roles well. Once I am given

a role, I commit personal resources to

researching the character and getting it

right. I am sure my fans are generally

entertained because my producers tell me

that they keep asking for more.

How will you assess the Nollywood


I think we are not doing badly at all except

that we need funding and the right

structures including distribution structures

so that we can sell movies and so that our

producers will have enough to make more

movies and that way we can earn monies

as practitioners.

At the moment what I take

home is not bad. But I am very certain that once we curb

piracy, improve distribution and properly

regulate the industry, things will improve.

But was acting really your career interest

as a child?

No, it was not. Well before I came into the

industry, I wanted to be a nurse . I was

actually about to start my nursing School before fate brought me into d

entertainment industry and since I joined

over a decade or so ago, I have worked in A law firm as a secretary.

What would you say are the pains of


No pain, no Gain

Well, you know everything that has an

advantage and also its disadvantages. For

me, I think the major pain is seeing a lot of

false information about me. False stories.

People impersonating me on social media,

sending out false information and using it

to defraud my fans. It is so painful. But I

know the pains come with being involved in

a glamorous industry such as the entertainment industry.
