After the contract of Genevieve Nnaji as a Lux ambassador expired, Bankole was chosen along with Sylvia Udeogu and Olaide Olaogun to become the new face of Lux in 2007.
She made her acting debut during her reign as Lux ambassador in the family drama Super Story: Everything it Takes and has gone on to appear in movies like Two Brides and a Baby, The Meeting, October 1 and Render to Caesar.
