Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems, has expressed hope of acting in a movie someday soon.
The Grammy-award-winning singer said during an interview with BBC in London that she would love to play single-mum roles in movies.
Naija News understands that Tems was raised by a single mother in Lagos, Nigeria.
“I’m ready to act in movies. Not ready right now but I’m already good at acting.
“The first character I would love to play is a single mum. It doesn’t need to be struggling. It could be like a fun single mum or a single mum that has mysteries. A gangster,” the Oscar-nominated diva said.
Tems has now joined the likes of Davido, Wizkid, and Mr Eazi, who have also spoken about joining the movie industry in the past though not as actors but as executives.
Meanwhile, Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo, has said that his ex-wife, Bunmi, was not a mistake in his life, adding that her presence in it was divine.
Ninalowo made this known in an interview on TVC’s Your View, posted Friday on Instagram. According to the actor, he is a unique being who walks with God’s grace and thus attracts divine beings.
“I’m a very special person,” Ninalowo said, adding he said, “I’m anointed. I’m grateful and very spiritual.
“My ex-wife was not a mistake in my life; it was divine, and the next woman I will meet will also be divine. You can not have a destination without a journey.
“I’m not interested in a million women. When I see the woman, I will know.”
Ninalowo and Bunmi were married for 17 years before going their separate ways. They have two children.
