Tayo Odueke also known as Sikiratu Sindodo has lamented over the misconception people have about Yoruba actors.
The actress popular in the Yoruba arm of Nollywood said people think Yoruba actors cannot speak English.
The single mother of one who has been romantically linked with Fuji Maestro, Malaika said: “People often think that Yoruba actors cannot speak English but that’s not true. Most of the people coming into the industry now are graduates. Even the ones that have been there before, who were not graduates, are going back to school. One problem that we have is that the pay in the industry is very poor and that is why I don’t appear in a lot of movies. The only way we make money is when we produce our movies” she told Punch.
Speaking on what fame has done for her, she noted that it has opened a lot of doors for her
“Fame has opened a lot of doors for me. There are some places where some of my friends, who are not popular, cannot go but once I get there, they allow me in because they recognise my face. Some of the disadvantages are that when one goes to parties or run some chores, street urchins would often harass you”.
