an up and coming actress who has
everything going for her; the looks,
voice and charisma. Bolaji was part
of the Next Movie Star Academy and
since then, she has continued to pursue her passion for acting
relentlessly. She talks about career,
her definition of love and more in
Your experience at the Next
Movie Star Academy?
It was a great experience and that
was in 2013 if I am not mistaken.
When you go for any reality show,
one should understand that at some point, someone will be shown the way out irrespective of their outstanding performance. I was

An actress recently said her big
boobs brought her to limelight,
should we expect such statement
from you some day?
Anything could push anybody to
say anything. I am pretty, tall,
confident and have a beautiful
smile. So mine will be a combination
of many things and not my big

Will you agree that finding love
for a rich lady might be difficult ?
A true and complete man should
not be intimidated by a woman’s
success. In fact, a man should help
his woman become more successful.
Don’t you think this is one of the
reasons why we have many
spinsters in Nollywood?
I totally disagree. These actresses
have not just met the right man.
Regardless of your chosen career,
the right man will find you someday.
We have A-list actresses who are
married with kids. A good woman will meet her own man at the right
time. We have men who will never
settle for actresses for one reason or the other. But my point of view is
this, it is not what you do, but who

Secrets of sustaining healthy
Discovering one’s self is key to
sustaining a healthy relationship.
Your definition of a successful
A successful movie is that which
impacts positively on the viewer. A
movie people can remember for a
long time is a successful one.
Intimate things about you?
I am left-handed, like light-skinned
guys, very emotional, can’t date a
poor man and would have
preferred having a bigger butt.
Are you saying if a man has all
the attributes but poor, it’s a ‘no’
Relationships are about
responsibility. A man can’t have all
the qualities of a good man and be
poor. A woman should not date or
marry a man who cannot be
responsible for her. It goes both ways anyways. It’s better to be
single than cutting corners in a
relationship. If a man has all the
prospects but poor, then his goal at
that time should be finding money
and not a woman. If you can’t take care of your partner, then the
relationship is faulty.
Can you quit acting?
I can’t quit acting for anything.
What if your boyfriend asks you
My boyfriend has no right over me.
Many actors seem to be living a
fake life, why?
It is not our fault. Being a celebrity is
an illusion of somebody who is
perfect and we are not. Meaning, we
have to act being perfect.
How often do you have sex?
I don’t have sex and will remain like
that for as long as I can hold it.
That is the way I want it .
An actress once said, it is better to
have sex outside a relationship
than having sex in a relationship
and suffer heart-break. Your
I am very emotional and as such,
cannot sleep with a man without
any form of commitment.
Will you leave if your man
I will be stupid to do that. There are
other ways to punish a man. I won’t
give him the chance to be free.

That is setting up my own
production company, settle down
and have kids.
There is the film with the titled Mami

excited about it.
