"Yes, I Dated Odunade Adekola".. Taiwo Aromokun revealed. Eww, what audacity!!! Will someone remind this babe that Odunlade Adekola is married, I'm not even holding brief for the brother but his wife could or would definitely come across the recent interview the actress granted SOURCE. What's wrong with girls lately? Is this freakin' fair?!!
Here's the exerpt from the interview.
"My father is late. He was a pastor. He was very angry with me when I chose acting as a career. He asked me if I didn’t consider what his congregation would think about my decision. I asked him what his fears were. He said actresses often ended
When asked how she got her break in the movie industry, her answer
I can’t really say the movie that brought me to limelight. There was this movie, Agidi; I didn’t even play a major role in it, but my face was used for the poster and on the sleeve. It was actually my first movie. Immediately after the film came out, people started calling me for jobs. I did Girigiri and many other films. I thank God for the turnaround.
Why I prefer Yoruba movies
I tried to appear in an English language movie, but the producers were quite prejudiced. I think they are scared of mixing with us. We accommodate them. Now we invite some of them to feature in our movies even when the fees that they demand from us are high. I have appeared in two of such movies and in two soap operas.
The actress was attacked by hoodlums, here's how she narrated the incident
We were shooting a movie and I was expecting one of my actresses. She was coming from the United Kingdom and I was supposed to go and pick her from the airport that night. But I couldn’t go because I was needed on location. I asked her to pick a cab from the airport and come to the location. The trip from the airport to the location wasn’t supposed to take her more than 45 minutes, but she had stayed for more than two hours on her way to location. I was agitated. It was getting late. It got to a point she stopped answering her calls and I was very worried. So I stood outside and started to call her name. My generator boy wanted to pass a cable and connect electricity. I noticed that some guys came to him and started harassing him. I ignored them. They wanted to beat him up, but he quickly told them that I was the producer and that they should come and meet me. They came to me. They said I should give them money. I ignored them. I thought they wouldn’t do anything since I was a female. But one of them said he would deal with me. I told him he wouldn’t dare. Before I could do anything, he struck me. I hit him back. The generator guy ran in and called the other members of the production crew. The hoodlum picked up a stick and hit me again. We invited the police. One of them was caught and he was detained for more than three days. He begged to be set free. His superiors also begged to be pardoned. Eventually, he was releasesd. Even the one that hit me came and begged as well.Erm, know MC Oluomo? Here's what Taiwo Aromokun said about her meet with him
I will not deny the fact that I know MC Oluomo. The first time I saw him was in 2009. Bisi Ibidapo-Obe is my closest sister and friend in the movie industry. She was launching her movie and I was invited. I had not heard of nor met MC at that time. During the event, one of MC Oluomo’s aides walked up to me and said his chairman wanted to see me. I went to him and he said he liked me and that he had been watching my movies and he liked the way I act. I said I was like a daughter to him.
I didn’t see him again until early this year. The same Bisi was marking her mother’s birthday. I hardly attend parties, but I had to attend that one because of Bisi. MC was sitting on the same table with my senior colleagues. I went there and I greeted everybody and walked away. The next thing I heard was the rumour that I was dating him. Even they said that Liz Da Silva and I slept with MC at the same time. The ironical part of the story is that I don’t even talk to Liz. She is not my friend. So I don’t know how both of us would have gone to sleep with same man at the same time.So, here's the thing about her affair with actor Odunlade Adekola.
I am very blunt and God-fearing (coughs). I actually went out on a date with Odunlade Adekola. I will not deny it. But we are no longer dating. We are just friends now. In fact, we will remain just friends for the rest of our lives. We are still close. People tend to get the wrong ideas when they notice that a particular guy casts a particular lady in his movies constantly. Odun is a very sentimental person. He believes that I am a good actress. He is well known. Right now, he is number one in the Yoruba movie industry. He believes that somebody can benefit from his stardom and succeed as well. I think that was what he did for me. God will not come down to help you. He would send you help through people. God used him to lift me up in the industry.Why we broke up
I wanted to move on with my life. Odun was married with two adorable sons and he was not ready to take a second wife. So there was no point in continuing the relationship. I would have married him if he had asked me. I know my father would not have been pleased with that if he was still alive. But marriage is about understanding and happiness. If I find a man that understands and respects me, loves and cares for me, what else do I need? Despite the fact that we are no longer lovers, we still communicate to each other. It was rumoured I fought with Flakky Ididowu over Odun. It is not true. Such a thing didn’t happen. I have seen Flakky just once this year. I don’t go to parties. How could I have fought with Flakky during a party? People think I am proud and I hardly talk to my colleagues. But that is not the case. I am only reserved. I always keep to myself in order to avoid gossip. I was hurt when my relationship with Odunlade broke up, but life goes on. The truth is that we didn’t even break up like that. We just came to a mutual understanding. A friend of mine actually said I was the one who didn’t want to marry Odun. I asked her why she said so. She said a lady should know how to hook a man. But I am not that kind of person. I knew he was married before we started dating. But some people are destined to get married to two wives, even if the first wife agrees or not. I shouldn’t be desperate to hook a man. I don’t have any regret dating him. I also know he is happy dating me.
My new lover
I am currently dating Jesus Christ, who will eventually find another man for me at a more convenient time. I am happy with Him. He doesn’t make my head ache with pain. I don’t believe that dating Odun would affect any future relationship with another man. Any man that wants to date me should know that I have a past. I am not so ugly for anybody to think that I would have been without a boyfriend all my life. I have moved on with my life and I know I would still get another guy. If the guy I meet is married again, I would know I was destined to be a second wife. I don’t know why people are sentimental about actors dating actresses. Bankers date each other. It wasn’t as if I dated a physically-challenged person. Even if he were, I still liked him a lot. Most of my colleagues are getting married. I am happy for them. But I also pray the marriages work out. I feel pained when a colleague’s marriage breaks up. It makes me remember what my father said about this profession before he passed on.
I learnt they said I was stranded in London. But that is a fat lie. I was never stranded in London. Even before the story broke, I was already in Nigeria.
