Nollywood actor, Ajibade Omisade’s life suffered a set back at age 7 after he lost both parents. In spite of this, spending the rest of his growing years at the SOS Children’s Village home in Lagos didn’t stop him from achieving his dreams.
In 2008, he emerged the first runner-up of Amstel Malta Box Office Reality show and has never looked back since. The ‘Tinsel’ star speaks to DUPE AYINLA-OLASUNKANMI, on his projects among other issues.
HOW are you able to balance different crafts at the same time?
It has not been easy, but one thing I know is that all things are possible if you are able to manage your time and also listen to the one, who has placed all these in your hands. Another thing is being able to apply all rules that have to do with each of those things; adequate understanding, time and the ability to study the industry, which includes public appearances and other things.
How rich are you?
(Laughs) Calculating from my income, I would say I am not poor and I am very comfortable to pay my house rent and buy a car and buy basic things that I need. But I am not rich enough to say I am very rich. But I hope getting endorsements and acting on bigger projects.
Are you married?
No, but I can see marriage knocking at my door. I believe that the ideal woman would fall in place and I will be a Mr to a Mrs.
Tell us about yourself?
I hail from Ile Ife in Osun State, Nigeria. I’m a graduate of Mass Communication from Bowen University. I was the first runner up of Amstel Malta Box Office TV Reality show in 2008. I was one of the award presenters at AMAA awards 2014, featured in over 50 TV series and Nollywood movies such as Tinsel, Living in Lagos, Troubled Waters, 2 Sides of a coin, Fuji House of Commotion, Shuga, Do Good, and Entreat amongst others. I am also a model and have done adverts for some big companies.
