I’m responsible to my wife and children – Funsho Adeolu

Nigerian actor Funsho Adeolu is in fact known has one of the most responsible men in the industry.

The actor who for a while has been uploading videos of himself keeping fit spoke with Sunday Scoop on his daily routine.

“It is nothing new. I have always been doing those exercises; just that I don’t upload videos of them on social media. It has been my daily lifestyle for some time now. Everybody has to keep fit, regardless of age.”

On being called ‘Finest’ by people in the industry, he said; “Yes, they call me Finest but it doesn’t make me feel anyhow. It doesn’t make me a sex symbol. Everybody who knows me knows I’m responsible to my wife and children.”

On the next phase of his career, the actor said, “I want to start a training school for young actors. Though there are lots of such schools around, mine is going to be different because I would carry out a screening to find out if the intending students really have the talent needed. If they don’t have the required talent, they would not be admitted to the school. I will also invite professionals to screen the students coming into the school. The training will last for just three months and we will tutor them on acting for stage, acting for TV, speech (how to sound on TV), and something called mad house for retentive memory. We would also teach them how to behave at auditions.”

On the new set of young actors in the industry, Adeolu said, “I noticed that people just come and go within the blink of an eye. I have been acting for over 30 years. I started my career in 1987, and by 1989, I was already in the papers. I said to myself that if I could be here for that long, I should be able to help others to have such an enduring career.”
