Oloruntimilehin Bukola popularly known as Kiitan is one of the wave-making actresses in the movie industry. This very humble, highly talented and down to earth actress has achieved so much as an actress cum producer within a short period in the industry, compared to many of her contemporaries, and she is leaving no stone unturned to still achieve more in the industry.

 

Kiitan achieved so much in 2021 from acquiring a house, to buying an exotic car, bagging several awards for her exceptional role interpretations in movies.

 

Despite all these, she still not relenting as she will be premiering her 4th movie titled “Ola” soon.

 

In this interview with City People’s BIODUN ALAO, she talked about what really inspired her latest movie, how she has been able to achieve so much in a short while and why she has been keeping to herself in the industry. Below are the excerpts.

 

What inspired your latest movie titled “Ola”?

 

My latest movie titled “Ola” (Tomorrow) was inspired by the things I have seen about life. A lot of things are happening today that many even forget there is tomorrow and also they have forgotten many things we do today determines our tomorrow.

 

What should expect from this latest movie and the premiere?

 

I want people to expect something new and different, it is very different from my usual movie. When I sit back and watch. I am always surprised that I could come out with I thank God. I was able to change my character from what people are used to watch, so people can see another part of me as an actor.

 

How have you been able to achieve so much as a young actress in the industry?

 

It’s been God, I am only trying my best so I give God all the glory. I am not perfect but God has been indeed faithful.

 

The year 2021 was a very fulfilling one for you, what is the secret?

 

The truth is 2021, I focused more on my career, when I joined the movie industry, I had a target and I always want people to know that the Yoruba movie industry is actually not what people think of it.

 

Some will even say oh Yoruba movies I don’t want to watch it, but I actually want to try my best to change that narrative through my own movie by producing unique and interesting movies that they can learn from. We have good producers that produce fantastic movies in the industry and I want to be counted among those very few.

 

What is the secret of your success in the industry?

 

There is actually no secrets anywhere I am only trying my very best to do something different and unique.

 

I have been trying so hard to challenge myself and do something some other people believe it is too difficult for them.

 

If you have the opportunity to change anything now about yourself in the industry, what would it be?

 

Honestly, absolutely nothing. I don’t want to change anything but rather work harder to be a better person. You are also one actress that tends to always mind her business in the industry, what prompted that decision?

 

Naturally, I am a lane minder, even outside the industry, I mind my business and keep to myself a lot. Some will say it is because I am arrogant but truly I am not a proud person. I am a very emotional person, I get hurt easily, so as much as I don’t want to hurt people, I won’t encourage anyone to hurt me too. So that is why I mind my business.

 

I don’t like being taken for granted. I am always happy for people’s success and celebrate them. I enjoy being on my own.

 

What is your next plan after this movie?

 

I would like to do something better and bigger than this again. I just always want to be a step ahead.

 

Do you have any regret so far in the industry?

 

I don’t have any regret so far. Being famous actually rob one of her privacy, maybe that is the only regret so far. I am this person that doesn’t like putting my family in the limelight. I don’t want anybody to know about my relationship but being popular people wants to know about your everything and that is very scary so that is like the only aspect I don’t like.

 

What is your greatest desire in the industry?

 

The greatest desire in my career is to be at the very top, become an A-list actor, though I know it requires lots of hard work and I am working tirelessly towards that. I want to see myself in Hollywood, I want to see myself on Netflix and make my fans really proud.

 

How many movies have you produced so far?

 

I have been in the industry for a while now and I have produced 3 movies. My latest movie “Ola” (Tomorrow) is my fourth production and it will be premiered on the 27th of December and I honestly can’t wait for people to see it, it is far from the usual.

 

I know what I am talking about. I had to challenge myself this time around. I can’t wait to start getting reviews.

Music executive, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz has announced his separation from his wife, actress Funke Akindele.

He announced this in a post shared on his IG page this morning. He said the last two years of his marriage has been extremely difficult and that he has moved out of their home on the instance of Funke.

 

”Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. Three months ago and at Funke’s insistence ,I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA,I have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship. I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which needs to be disentangled but I have no doubt that all of these will be resolved one way or the other.

 

There have been reports that their marriage has been in crisis for a while now. In the last AMVCA awards, Funke and JJC arrived at the venue of the ceremony separately but sat together and even went on the stage to receive an award won by Funke.
