Big Brother Naija star, Bisola Aiyeola, has said that she owes her success in the entertainment industry to her own efforts and personal struggles, not the reality television show, as many Nigerians were wont to believe.
Bisola said this minutes after receiving a surprise award during last Saturday’s African Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards held at the Eko Le Meridien Hotel and Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos.
“There is so much money that can be made from the African movie industry. An animation is a good example of how we can tap into the potential of the industry. It is one sector that we haven’t exploited at all.”
Bisola dedicated her award to the memory of her late baby daddy, Malcom Olanrewaju who passed on a few days ago at the age of 37. “It’s been a sad week for me, but I’m also happy that I won this award. It’s not just for me; it is for my family and for people who have watched me grow, as well as those that have seen through my journey.
“Notwithstanding, it would have been beautiful if Malcolm was around to see me win this award. He knew about this journey that I embarked on some years ago.
I’m dedicating this award to him and everybody else in my life,” she said.
