Actress Bisola Badmus ‘No sugar daddy opened boutique for me’

Bisola Badmus

CHUBBY actress cum film maker, Bisola Badmus has just become an ambassador to a property and real estate company, Dosmak.  According to the Abeokuta, Ogun born thespian, the endorsement deal is juicy though she didn’t disclose the amount involved.

She spoke on this and other issues, including her rumoured multi-million naira boutique said to have been opened for her by a sugar daddy and much more when ENCOMIUM Weekly had a phone chat with her on Monday, October 19, 2015.

 

We learnt you have veered into property and real estate business, what informed that decision?

I am just an ambassador to a company, Dosmak Nigeria Limited, which is into property.  And that makes me one of the company’s marketers for its property in Lagos and Ogun States.

Are you doing that for free or money is involved?

Of course, as an ambassador you don’t expect me not to be paid.  It’s an endorsement deal.  So, I was paid for it.

How much exactly were you paid for that?

I can’t disclose that.  All I know is that I was well paid.

Were you also given some land as an ambassador?

Yes, it’s normal to get land in addition to the money.

The impression out there is that movies are not doing well any more, and that informed why many of you are going into various businesses, what’s your take on that?

That’s not true.  There is nothing like that at all.  I am doing well in my career as an actress and a movie producer.  Even I just produced a movie, Selimotu Turaka, which will soon be released.

But a lot of people think most of you actresses are into prostitution just to live big since movies are no longer selling as before…

(Cuts in) That’s rubbish.  If they say we actresses are into prostitution and that’s why we’re making it in the industry, what will they say of the men in the industry?  Are they not making it or they are also prostitutes?  So, it’s a stupid talk.

Your movie, Selimotu Turaka, must have cost you a lot of money?

All I can just say is that it’s a multi-million naira movie.

Who are the actors paraded in the flick?

I have Muyiwa Ademola, Fathia Balogun, Femi Adebayo, Sanyeri Afonja, Tijani Adekola, Ijebu, myself and others.

Is it 100 per cent comedy?

Yes, it’s comedy all through.

It’s quite a while you released a movie, why did you wait till now?

No, I have not waited for long.  My last movie was released last year, and that’s Afopina. Now, I have completed my latest movie, Selimotu Turaka.  And it’s going to be talk-of-the-town.

We also learnt you deal in wears, how true is it?

It’s true.  I am dealing in wears.  I have been doing that ever before acting.

How do you juggle all these, acting, property and selling of wears?

Nothing disturbs the other.  Being an actress has not in any way affected other businesses.

There was this tale a couple of months back that a sugar daddy has opened a multi-million naira boutique for you in Idimu, Lagos?

That’s a stupid rumour.  There is nothing like that.  I don’t even own a shop let alone a multi-million naira boutique.  I don’t know where they got that.

You said you don’t have a shop, how do you now keep your items?

I am a businesswoman.  I know how to go about that.

Does that mean you don’t have a man rocking your world at the moment?

That’s my private life and I want it to remain so.

What’s your candid assessment of the industry right now?

Things are moving.  I can’t say there is poverty in the industry because no matter the economic situation in the country, we’re still doing better.  But the only thing killing the industry is piracy.  We really need government participation in fighting that because we alone can’t do it.
