“For those of you who haven’t heard me sing before, you will see a bit of that in Hoodrush,’she said. “Also, I think O.C Ukeje is such a brilliant actor, I think he is going places so people should watch out for him and my ‘’fake’’ daughter, Chelsea Eze , she is such a talented actress too.
Speaking more on the movie, Hoodrush, the amiable actress said it was great working with the movie producer who was receptive to opinions. Akintola whose stage and films credits make her an actress of immense repute added that her friends in the industry are “selected from the heart”.
“I have actors who have been my friends for 20 years and we are still going strong. It is like marriage, if you don’t have the right partner, there would be trouble. If you have wrong friends, they would never tell you when you are going wrong.”
“I love Tonto Dike, I met her once and I think she is a good person, I love Omotola too, I would say she is my friend, we don’t see or talk everyday but when we do see and talk, it’s a moment to treasure, Stella, Keppy are also my friends amongst others’’.
