No man is poor in my diary — Bose Oladimeji
Bose Oladimeji is beginning to get all the attention in the Yoruba film industry, for both her talent and good looks. But Bose, from Kwara State and an English graduate of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ogun State, is burning with desire to do things most of her colleagues wouldn’t dare even though she wouldn’t cross the rubicon of going nude.
But there is something bothering Bose and it has nothing to do with going nude. The interview she granted Vanguard sometime in April, where she stated she could never marry a poor man, according to her, has been haunting her. In her opinion, she believes people misconstrued what she really meant.
“People have completely misunderstood the statement. In my diary no man is really poor unless he believes himself to be poor. What I actually meant was that I want my man to be hardworking, good, calm, intelligent, trustworthy, caring and loving. What I meant was a lazy man. I can’t marry a lazy man. If a man is lazy he puts his family in danger of insecurity, poverty and want. I can marry any man as long as he is not lazy and ready to work and allow me to work too. I can’t be a full housewife because to me it is a sign of laziness” she explained in a chat with Potpourri.
In spite of being in the industry for just a couple of years, Bose Oladimeji has produced four films of her own. “Oniduro was my first production, followed by Laye Lorun, Adajo Aye and my latest work, Aye Mi. Apart from those I produced, I have featured in so many other films that I cannot count” she once told Potpourri.
