Jumoke developed an interest in acting as a child from watching movies. It is something she has a passion for but because of the kind of her home. Her father was strict but he liked her a lot and she was closest to him the most so she didn’t know how to tell her dad because she knew his views about entertainment.
Her dad was all about his children studying professional courses like Medicine, Accounting.
Ironically, he prefers science courses though he studied Socio-Science probably because they were all girls and he wants to prove to people that what a man can do, a woman can do better.
She thought she could hurt him by telling him but passion cannot be hidden. So, the journey started without telling her dad until she finished her university education.
Jumoke was the best student in her department at 100 to 200 level but later went down a little on graduating.
At that point, she thought with good grades she could tell her dad but was still afraid. So whenever she watched a movie, She would go to her room and dramatize and also try to convince herself that she could do it better.
According to Jumoke, she said on a fateful day she was acting in the room, her sister came in unnoticed until she heard clapping hands.
She looked back and her sister was excited that she even wanted to scream but she had to beg her not to expose her.
Her sister encouraged her and helped tell their siblings. And that was how she started her acting career.
