Tell us about yourself?
I am Bosede Arowosegbe. I’m an actress, from Arigidi Akoko in Ondo State. I attended Ikeja Primary School and had my secondary school education in Delta and Ondo States. I also hold a Diploma Certificate in Ticketing Reservation.
How did you venture into acting?
I came into the movie industry through Sade Omoniyi, a.k.a Lepa Shandy, she is my mentor. She taught me the rudiments of the job and featured me in one of her films entitled: ‘Akamo’. But, I’ve since featured in other movies.
Have you produced any movie?
I’ve produced my own movie entitled: ‘Karenibarin’. People really commended me for the movie.
The commendation motivated me into producing another one entitled Anikisaya.
How would you react to the debt scandal that rocked your first movie, Karenibarin, because we heard that you didn’t pay back the loan you took to shoot the film?
That’s not true. It’s true I got a loan to shoot the movie, but I’ve paid the loan. The person, through which I paid the money, was the one that didn’t deliver it. But, everything has been settled now.
Did you also borrow money to shoot this new movie?
No, I used my money to shoot my new movie.
The first movie you featured in, how much were you paid?
I was not paid a dime, because it was meant to test my ability.
