Nollywood actor, Abdullateef Adedimeji has come a long way in the movie industry , especially in the Yoruba arm of it.
However the actor revealed recently to Punch that the acting life has not always been a bed of roses as there were times he got really frustrated and wanted to quit.
He said, “I have cried a lot out of frustration on this job. There was a day I cried and had to call Ibrahim Chatta informing him that I was leaving the industry. I told him that I would dust my certificate and get a 9-5 job because I was tired and suffering. But Ibrahim advised me against doing such. He told me that I could not leave at that stage because I was making tremendous progress.”
“I also called Muyiwa Ademola and he said if a lot of people would leave, I should not be one of them and if I still insisted on leaving, then it meant I was mad because I was at a stage where things could only get better. He advised me to endure the hardship for a little while if I really wanted to make it. He said that I should not think about the money but face the job and reminded me that there were people looking up to me; so I took his advice. With time, it is beginning to pay off and I know it will get better,” the actor continued.
