Nollywood Star Deyemi Okanlawon Reveals Surprising Career Path Outside Acting


Renowned Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon, has unveiled the unexpected profession he would have pursued if not for his successful journey in the film industry. In a recent interview with Pulse, Okanlawon shared that he harbored aspirations of being a Christian cleric, emphasizing it as more of a calling than a conventional career path.

“I don’t think I can call it a career path, it would have been more of a calling. I think I would have been a pastor [if I wasn’t an actor],” he revealed during the interview.

Contrary to speculations linking his on-screen roles to real-life demeanor, Okanlawon expressed his strong stance against domestic violence. Addressing rumors about himself, the actor highlighted the most ludicrous one – that he is “expensive to hire.” However, he intriguingly added that this particular rumor is not entirely baseless.

Okanlawon’s revelation sheds light on the multifaceted nature of individuals in the entertainment industry, showcasing the diverse paths and aspirations that lie beyond the glitz and glamour of the movie business.
