Popular Yoruba actress, Remi Oshodi, says her debut acting role fetched her N35.
In her recent interview, she said:
“I kicked off my acting career in 1985 with the classic TV series “Village Headmaster” and “Sparks”. My first paycheck as an actress was N35 for my role in the movie “Sparks.” I also earned N75 for my role in “Village Headmaster.” I then took a break from acting to work as a mortician at the popular funeral service company, Ebony Caskets. I returned to the Nigerian film industry after a few years.”
She reflected on how thankful she was to God on how far He had brought her despite the agony she went through after she lost her daughter in 2017.
“I am grateful for my life and everything. I thank God I don’t look like what I have been through. I am immortalising my daughter soon. I’m going to establish a rehab centre in my daughter’s name for young girls who take illicit drugs. At the same time, I am going to support people living with sickle cell. All those times that I was heartbroken, I was unable to put myself together. I am just recovering, not fully but I am trying to make things work. It is not easy.“ she said.
