Popular Yoruba movie comic actor, Tayo Amokade aka Ijebu has revealed that he worked as a generator repairer before he found fame as an actor.
He said this in an interview on Sunday noting that he faced so many rejections before he made it to where he is today.
“I actually started my career as a generator repairer. I faced a lot of rejections but they only made me stronger and led me to where I am today.
“Before joining Nollywood, I was a very determined person. I always made good use of all the opportunities that came my way.”
Ijebu who spoke on controversies and the movie industry said he tries all he can to distance himself from ‘drama’ in the industry.
“The question is, can one really avoid controversy? Even if one tries hard to stay away, it would somehow navigate to one. That is one big disadvantage of social media. I just always try my best to distance myself from any drama,” he said.
Ijebu had his break in the Yoruba movie scene when he played a minor role in comic film, Muniru and Ambali” which he produced.
He hails from Ilisan Remo, Ogun state and obtained a National Diploma in Mass Communication at Ibadan polytechnic.
