With more than six movies to her credit, Nollywood actress and producer Morili born Funmi Awelewa has been dazzling her numerous fans in the Yoruba sector of Nigeria’s movie industry.
“If you won’t be famous, there’s nothing you can do about it. Directors and producers only take advantage of desperate actresses,” she said in a recent interview.
With a rare acting talent, the beautiful role interpreter has opened up on what she’s been up to lately, her relationship and many more.
While many may wonder what her brand “Morili” stands for, the budding talent says her name stands as a brand for an indigenous actor, a comedienne to be precise.
“I want to use my brand to put an end to child abuse,” the Funke Akindele admirer adds.
Funmi recently helped a boy, little Taju in Ibadan to get back to school and she caught the attention of many including the state government who came to her aid to take charge of the little boy making his life easier as he deserves a better life. Funmi says she doesn’t regret helping little Taju though the state is now in charge and she will receive no benefit, she never expected anything in return for her kindness.
Speaking about sex for movie roles, she maintained that “only desperate actresses fall for it.”
Only God can make one famous. If you like have sex with 20 or more producers; if you’ll be famous, you’ll be. If you won’t be famous, there’s nothing you can do about it. Directors and producers only take advantage of desperate actresses, she concludes.
