Kano born musician and actor Ayoola Ayolola is the reason some Nigerians watch certain series and get stuck on them, well maybe not him directly but his vibes are just too strong to ignore and not feel.
From Skinny Girl in Transit, If I Am President to The Men’s Club, there is nothing not to love about the skills of the dapper stout young man.
Ayoola Ayolola was born to Yoruba father in Kano, Northern Nigeria, giving him the perfect Nigerian mix and the language prowess he displays in some of the movie roles he plays. He is the eldest of 5 children and his family lived in Kano until 2000 when he moved to Lagos. He got into Covenant University and made it as a graduate of Biochemistry in 2012.
Ayoola Ayolola is known for his sweet voice, both in singing and speaking and many thanks to his Father and Pastor discovered by his music talent. In order to pursue it further, he tried on four occasions to participate in Project Fame, but couldn’t scale the audition hurdles. He, however, made it to the Academy for Season 5 and emerged the star prize winner of MTN sponsored Project Fame West Africa, smiling home with a brand new Toyota Rav4, N2.5 million and a mouth-watering one year recording contract, having gotten the highest number of votes from viewers, both within Nigeria and the whole of West Africa.
In an interview with HipTV, Ayoola Ayolola described his stay in Covenant University as a preparation for the great things he had ahead which helped him work out his skills and make connects. “Shout out to covenant by the way. Wonderful school; I wouldn’t have been where I am today without covenant. As to whether it helped or if it hindered me…I didn’t feel restricted at all because in my mind’s mind, the four years that I was in school, I saw it as my preparatory stage. I was not pressured into wanting to be known, I was just working on my skills. I was in the choir; I was in an acapella group. I was always performing in school and sometimes outside school. I was also making connects. I had no problems with the law, I was just a cool headed guy“, he said.Our Saturday swag is a man of many colours and all shades of cuteness, talk of the beards, the thick skin, fine face, pink lips, sweet smile, positive vibes, good command of words and great act. Comments from viewers of movies roles he plays tell how much of a drool he may be getting on a daily, especially how he as Mide treats Tiwa in SGIT and as Garba pampers Tumini in TMC. Right from time, Ayoola Ayolola has been the man of suits, yoruba demon ensembles and shirts. No one absolutely looks hotter than Ayoola, though ! So for our Saturday Swag today, guys, he is just perfect!
Let’s talk about his acting journey… “I had always known that there was the possibility I could act. I was bored one day when I saw an advert on television calling for an audition and I went for it. While waiting for my turn, the organisers came out and announced that they had found what they wanted and that we could go. However, while we were leaving, one of the organisers came to me and asked me to read for a role. I eventually had my audition though they had told everyone that the audition was over“, he told the Punch last year.
From there onward, Ayoola Ayolola made his debut professional acting move in 2009 and it was quite adventurous for him. But sadly, he had to attend several auditions to get another role and according to him, the experience of going for many auditions wasn’t very palatable because it felt like time wasting, coupled with the fact that he had before project fame gone for about 12 acting and music talent competitions, but all he met were disappointments. “Before I joined Project Fame in 2012, I was already going for acting auditions and I had some gigs, for example, I was on Tinsel for about two months. I had actually been auditioning as an actor since 2009. In 2008, I started going for music talent show auditions. I was at the audition for the Project Fame that Iyanya won but I did not go past the first round. Between 2008 and 2012, I had gone for about 12 music talent show competitions. I attended the audition for Naija Sings twice, I went for Nigeria Idol twice. However, I was picked the second time for Nigerian Idol in January 2012, but I was the first person that was evicted“, he said.Thankfully all of the disappointments paid off with a lot of motivation from his father and yay, here he is today. Ayoola Ayolola is a motivation to many Nigerians and from set, an inspiration of how Nigerian men can captivate the hearts of their women and others’ with care and caressing.
Unfair enough, Ayoola does not give a peek into his sexy body like Kenneth Okolie, who at least teases his fans to it once in a while. He prefers keeping it safe in his fitting ensembles, however, the cuteness cannot be hidden at all, we see them through the clothes, lol.
Below we have gathered some cute pictures but hey, do not over-drool, his ‘entire life’ is somewhere in the corner watching you and he’s got a cute son too. So simply enjoy and drop your comments in peace, till next Saturday when i bring you another swag inspo!
