Popular Nollywood actor Yemi Blaq who seems to be careful about the kinds of movies he stars in, says he respects his wife when it comes to movie production.
The actor who also sings was played a romantic role where he had to kiss Mercy Johnson and Rita Dominic on the set of a movie she wrote and produced.
The actor in an interview with Punch claimed he was reluctant to kiss the actresses until Madam Blaq called him to order in private. He said, “After the first scene, she called me to a corner and reminded me about what we discussed while discussing the script. I was with her when she wrote the script and I gave her the name of the movie, The Distance Between. She said that we spoke about a certain degree of passion for the characters and that she was not seeing any. She told me that I had to do it properly and I obliged.“
Yemi Blaq who grew up in Ondo town has starred in several Nollywood flicks including Steve Gukas’ award-winning A Place in the Stars, Sinking Sand and High Blood Pressure.
