Royal Hugs boss speaks on first acting gig
The Chief Executive Officer, Royal Empire Surprises, Oluwatoyin Oyesanya, is excited about her first acting job in a movie titled, Ishola Alakola.
At a media parley during the week, Oyesanya told Sunday Scoop, “Due to the nature of my job organising surprises for people, I have met many people, and one of them is Alaba Ultimate. I met him when we went to surprise a particular Nollywood personality. While staging the surprise, the producer got my number and we started talking. I was very happy when he asked me if I was interested in acting in the movie.”
Shedding light on the movie, Oyesanya said, “It is an epic Yoruba film that is different from the regular ones out there. I was genuinely excited when I read the script, and I am so glad to be part of the cast. I play the role of the wife of lead character. It was indeed wonderful working with known actors, such as Iyabo Ojo.”
She, however, stated that though she was new in the industry, she was not entirely new to acting. She said, “I have always been interested in acting. Even when it comes to organising surprises, it is similar to acting, because we make people happy. There are times when one might not be in a good mood, but one would have to act happy. I had cultivated relationships with many actors, and that made it easier to work with them on set.”
Oyesanya also stated that getting involved in Nollywood would not affect her business, because she had built it to a stage that it could function even in her absence.
