Odunlade Adekola is tall with lots of action and one of the most popular Yoruba movie actors in the Nollywood Movie Industry. He has been in the Nigeria movie industry for some years now and has carved out a household name for himself.
After surfacing in the Nigerian Yoruba movie industry some years ago, Odunlade Adekola has since become a household name, as the tall, handsome actor has won the hearts of many Yoruba movie watchers both in Nigeria and beyond.
He was born on December 31st, 1977 in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. He attended the Saint John RCM primary school, and later Saint Peter’s college, both in Abeokuta. After being into acting for some years, Odunlade Adekola started acting at a very early age. According to him, whenever any anniversary was to hold in his church (the Christ Apostolic Church, Lafenwa, Abeokuta), he and a friend, named “Tunde”, would request to play jesters, and this request was always granted.
He wrote a “script” for a comedy play involving just two characters (him and his friend). That was how it all began for this professional actor, director and producer.
After being motivated by the likes of Taiwo Hassan (ogogo), Adebayo Salami (oga bello), Lere Paimo, and other genius Yoruba actors in Nollywood, he entered the professional scene in 2005.
However, he never started becoming increasing popular until 2007. He received training and additional motivation from Isola Durojaye (Alasari), now late, who believed in his potential and assisted him in bringing out the best in him.See more on Page2
