For almost a decade the damsel has been up,close and tight with the happenstances in the entertainment industry. Tayo has made remarkable exploits as a TV presenter,sexy dancer and a model.
Now she is taking her career as an actress and a producer more seriously.”I am ready” she told us like a warrior ready to conquer. Tayo is attractive no doubt as she got most of the guys gazing towards her direction immediately she tepped into Chiken Republic,located inside Shoprite ,Ikeja-venue of our meeting last weekend.
But what is more appealing about Tayo’s story is her determination to achieve greatness by stepping up her game in the industry. Tayo was full of excitement as she told gistmaster that she just finished work on her first movie, Arewa Oni jogbon, starring notable stars such as Rachel Oniga, Akin Lewis, Sanyeri (Olaniyi Afonja) and others.
The trailer is already generating so much interest on Youtube.The movie is was release in April 2012. Tayo also told us that the movie is a masterpiece. “For me, I won’t manage quality,i won’t even think less, I go for the best” she said with confidence She explained that “there are some producers who will not give you a chance as an actress if you are not ready to sleep your way, the issue of sexual harrassment in the industry is ready just that most people shy away from talking about it” Explaining further, Tayo said she would have taken acting as serious stuff about ten years ago but she had to walk out because of demands by some producers and actors to have her back for a role.
Now that she can do her own movie and get good scripts, she is ready to step up her game without having to sleep with anyone just for a role. Interestingly, i decided to ask her about her alleged romance with popular singer Olu Maintain, she denied it saying that they are only friends. I have not even seen him for sometime. People have been saying it that we are dating but its not true.
