She Started acting at 7
Bimbo Ademoye revealed she started acting when she was just a toddler. Her first rodeo in acting was at end of the year school party when she was in primary 5.
Bimbo’s acting skills were quite a sight to behold and that spurred a passing statement by her Dad who encouraged her to pursue a career in the field at a later time in life -She took it literally though, as her sterling career can prove credence to.
A little setback in school
Bimbo Ademoye is a graduate of Business Administration at Covenant University. She’d hoped to study theatre arts at the University but the school doesn’t offer the course and her father was insistent on CU.
After several talks and cajoling, She opted for admission and had a couple of carryovers after the first year in school
The actress who has a good relationship with her dad pulled through her first degree but noted her dad pushed for a second degree which she wasn’t going to oblige to.
Bimbo Ademoye’s lookalike dad drove her to the first audition she had at Surulere. He waited for 6hrs in the car while she auditioned for her first role.
She noted that he got her her first car after vowing not to relive the 6hrs wait at audition venues and advised the actress to get another job on the side while she waits for her big break
It didn’t end with the little fun facts, in the interview, Bimbo revealed one of the craziest moments that came with the package of being an actress.
Speaking about the craziest thing that has happened to her on a movie set, Bimbo Ademoye said:
One time when we were filming, I was upstairs and I was going downstairs. Somebody had put a cup of hot water on the rail upstairs. For some reason when I got downstairs, it poured on me. Like from (my neck) all the way down. Thankfully I didn’t have any burns but the sting and everything, I screamed. So I went into the bathroom. Then, the production manager came to knock, “We are waiting for you”. (What?!) Everybody saw the cup fall on me and he was like we are waiting for you. (Laughs). So, I open the door and all the curse words that could come out of my mouth. It took so much not to put my hands on this man even though I knew he was going to beat me up. Like who raised you? Then the director came downstairs and she said “Bimbo sorry he’s only doing his job”. I haven’t worked with her since then, I don’t think I’m ever going to do that. That has to be the craziest.
