I’m not just a producer, am a commercial actor too – Yemi My Lover

Published

Yemi my lover

Revered Nigerian actor, Yemi Ayebo has said that he had produced other movies that were better than Yemi my Lover, the title that brought him to the limelight.

Speaking with Sunday Scoop he admitted that it was the movie that t made him popular and that’s how he got his stage name.

“Even if I make movies that are more interesting, they may not be as popular as the one from which I derived my stage name. As a matter of fact, I have made movies that are better than Yemi my Lover. For you to know how powerful that name is, many of the contemporary music artists such as Olamide and DJ Cuppy have sang about it.”

Speaking on his current projects, the actor said there is a project he is working on but it’s on hold because of financial challenges.

When asked why he isn’t often seen in movies these days, the entertainer said many of his colleagues think I’m not a commercial artiste.

“But I’m telling them not to see me as just a movie producer. I am also a commercial actor. Ever since I started speaking out about this, there have been changes but not much. They now call me for jobs but things can be better.”

He mentioned artiste like late Ade Afolayan (Ade love) as an artist who used to feature only in his own production, and people have been looking at him like that.

“In those days, hardly would you see an actor such as Ade Afolayan (Ade Love) in every movie. He usually only featured in his own productions. Because of that, people perceived him as not been a commercial artiste.

“Someone like Kunle Afolayan is also seen in that light. He is a producer and director, and many people don’t see him as a commercial actor. As for me, I am a producer, director, singer, dancer and actor. I am a born artiste and there is no role I cannot play.”
