Background

I'm now in my 40s. I was born in Oru Ijebu in Ijebu North Local Government area of Ogun State. I am the sixth child of my family. I hail from a humble background. I had both my elementary and secondary education in my home town. I obtained the grade two certificate from the Teacher's Training college in Oru, as well as an honours degree certificate in Theatre Arts from the University of Ibadan, Oyo State.


How I started acting

I came into acting 30 years ago, under the tutelage of the late Mukaila Adebisi, the manager of Oloko theatre group. After my training, I worked briefly with the late theatre arts professional, Dele Ogunsanya. who influenced my artistic career. Since then, I have also worked with different professionals in the industry.


I made my debut in the 80s', between 1985 and 1986. Thereafter, I came into limelight having featured in other movies, particularly Ti Oluwa ni Ile. To date, I have produced over 13 movies on my own. Moreso, I have featured in over 200 movies.
