Nollywood actor, Odunlade Adekola is a fan favourite, especially for those that love Yoruba movies.
The actor who recently added one more award to his growing collection at the Afro-Heritage Broadcasting and Entertainment Awards that took place in Houston told Punch that he knows a lot of people are doubtful of his success.
He said although many people have accused him of getting to where he is through diabolical means, he has nothing to hide because he knows how much he prayed to God to make him successful.
He said, “I never knew I would be successful as an actor; my belief has always been that God should elevate me in my endeavours. I always prayed that God should make me a successful person.
“Some people say that I used voodoo or metaphysical powers to be successful. I hear when they say such but I tell everyone that I can never do such. During the graduation of my students last year, I addressed this issue because it was during that time people were peddling rumours of my demise. When the rumour of my death hit town, some people said that I did ‘jazz’ to be successful. That was why during the graduation of my students last year, I said it in public that if I had ever thought of doing ‘jazz’ to succeed God should make me lose everything I had ever worked for.
“I hear these comments but they do not move me at all. I am a writer, director, producer and an actor. It is normal for people to talk but it has never upset me.”
