Actor, Demola Adedoyin has explained the reasons behind his industrialist dad, Dr Samuel Adedoyin’s resistance when he learnt about his acting career.
Speaking in a recent interview, the actor who is a brother of late Kwara member of House of Representatives, Funke Adedoyin said, “My father resisted the idea of me going into entertainment when he found out. And he resisted until he found out I was already doing it.”
The ‘October 1’ star, however said his father had a good intention for resisting his incursion into the world of movies.
“I think his heart was pure about it, he wants me to be okay but just didn’t understand it, that is all,” he added.
Speaking further, the actor and singer said his dad had been successful in banking and manufacturing world, hence the world of entertainment and its business appeared strange.
“He didn’t give a reason for resisting against me going into entertainment but now I understand it. You can’t really believe in what you don’t understand.
Demola, who is the 10th child of the famous industrialists from Kwara State, said he didn’t really get a formal consent from his dad before landing his first movie role.
The actor said he had planned out how he wanted his dad and other family members to find out about his involvement in the movie industry.
Demola, who admitted to being a movie critic, landed his major movie role in Kunle Afolayan’s blockbuster, ‘October 1.’
He has since acted in various movie productions, including ‘Knock Out Blessings,’ Kemi Adetiba’s ‘King of Boys’ and yet-to-be released ‘God Calling’ from BB Sasore.
