By Benjamin Njoku

Nollywood actor, Femi Adebayo has described his delving into politics as a divine calling, noting that he didn’t go about lobbying for his appointment as the Special Adviser to the former Governor of Kwara State on Arts, Culture and Tourism, AbdulFatah Ahmed

“That means you feel the people more and they in turn will feel free to express what they need from you and you will be able to execute those things you think will be of immense benefit to them.”

Explaining further, the son of legendary actor, Adebayo Salami alias Oga Bello said: “When I got to my state, I realized we have many beautiful cultures and tourist attractions that people do not know. We decided to create awareness about the cultures and tourist attractions in Kwara State for people to know and of course, encourage investors. And to God be the glory, we were able to achieve that. I did branding for those cultures and tourist attractions, bringing them under one umbrella tagged: Our Kwara. It’s all over Kwara and that’s what makes up Kwara State: our culture and our tourism potentials.”  The actor, who trained as a lawyer but dumped the noble profession for acting revealed that  he’s currently working on the sequel of his movie, Jelili titled, “Return of Jelili.”

Adeboye said they shot the movie, which he reportedly earmarked N25 million as his budget about a year ago, in Ibadan and Ilorin.

The fashionista took to her Instagram page to share a short clip of the video she had earlier shared on her YouTube channel, where she criticized men who take ladies on dates and expect them to pick the bills or they split it evenly.

“Dating a miserly man is like a disease, dating a miserly woman is like hell fire. When you’re dating a guy who is stingy to himself, its the worst kind of relationship you can be in. You’ll always be excessive in his books,” she said.

Her caption read: “Let’s talk about those miserly people. I call it “scarcity mentality”. They hate to spend on themselves talkless of spending on other people. Dating a miser is so exhausting, even if you work hard, you will always be excessive even for the basic things of life to them. They will always find a way to make you look wasteful or feel bad for wanting more out of life.

“Stay away from people who suffer from “scarcity mentality” for your own peace of mind or you’ll defend why your kids should go to good schools, why you want more out of life, you’ll always explain yourself forever.”

I’m not surprised that is the attraction though; I am a skin therapist and I can tell you that I know everything that has to do with skin care and that is the secret behind my glowing skin,” she said.

Being the eldest of four children, Thompson revealed that although she has been having a swell time since she joined the movie industry, she has had an experience with directors and producers who wanted to “get down” with her, thanks to her complexion.

“Yes, I have had a few approach me and they made sexual advances to me but I bluntly refused because I know that I don’t have to mess my way to the top and with God on my side, I will reach the zenith of my career,” she said.
