Top Yoruba actor, Femi Adebayo advised against cutting corners to get rich in his recent Instagram post.
The prolific thespian used himself as the perfect example as he shared photos of himself at different phases of his life and wrote;
“Listen! Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day. It’s Okay If You’re Aspiring To Reach That High Position, Just Keep In Mind That Every @femiadebayo , @donjazzy And @officiallindaikeji Has A Beginning, Most Likely A Very Rough Beginning…..Trust Me. Growth Is A Process; It’s More Rewarding To Pass Through All Its Stages Than To Try To Cut Corners Or Hope For A Sudden Jackpot. In Most Cases It Takes Sitting, Crawling, Walking Before You Can Run Or Fly. So Don’t Live Your Life With The Fear Of “What Will People Say” Nothing Good Comes Out From Trying So Hard To Please The World. Run Your Race Not Someone Else’s.
Adebayo began acting in 1995, the same year he featured in a Tade Ogidan movie titled Owo Blow. He has starred in several Nigerian films, winning four awards as Best Yoruba actor at the 17th African Film Awards popularly known as Afro Hollywood awards at the Stratford Town Hall in London.
He also won an award in the same category for the Best of Nollywood Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria Awards in 2012. He has a long list of movies to his credits which includes the much anticipated Sonto Alapata, Wura Ati Fadaka, Ma Wobadan and Buga(a very funny one) just to mention a few. Femi is the MD/CEO of J-15 media network Nigeria. He has masters in law.
