Mastering Foreign Accent Helped Me Break Into Hollywood, Actress, Folake Olowofoyeku Reveals


Nigerian Born Nollywood Actress, Folake Olowofoyeku, has been able to carve a niche for herself in her chosen field, combining acting with music in the process. The Lagos born role interpreter in a recent interview revealed that she was open to featuring in a Nollywood project after the one she once participated in did not see the light of the day.

She also reminisced about her growing up, noting that growing up in Lagos prepared her for what was to come later in her life when she left the shores of Nigeria to study.

Speaking on her burgeoning career and what worked for her, she said, “I believe, like in every other profession (and especially one of an artistic nature) the challenge is in finding your niche/market, and then operating strategically. One thing is for sure though, the quicker you can master accents, the more opportunities you become eligible for.”
