“I have always had a passion for acting since I was young and I did write movie stories growing up. I liked acting so much, and I could remember how I did invite our neighbors then so we could do a short drama in our house. Acting has always been my thing since childhood.
“Then fast forward to when I was done with my secondary school, I had one big sister in our neighborhood then and she’s into acting as well, her name is Iwalola. She was the first person to take me on a movie set in 2010 in Ibadan, and I featured as an extra in a club scene though I can’t remember the title of the movie anymore, but there were great actors in the movie such as Damola Olatunji among many others”.
Speaking further on her foray into the acting world, Aderonke revealed, “My dad wasn’t in support at all! You know how African parents can be when it comes to acting as a career. But my stepmom was partially in support, she has always been a lover of Nollywood movies and the industry in general and we also had a video club where we rent out movies on our street as well. I was able to go to the first movie set because my dad was on a business trip”.
