BON: give us a brief intro about yourself?

My name is Temitope Osoba , I am an actress, I graduated from olabisi onabanjo university Ago iwoye. I studied Business Education.

BON:  what prompted you to go into acting?

Actually, I didn’t have the intentions of acting, it just came along the line. It wasn’t something I had the intentions of doing, it wasn’t in my agenda. Initially I used to be a dancer, I dance for a group of artist, then this job came along the line, it was a dance movie that i featured in it that was how it all started.

BON: How many movies have you featured in?

Truthfully, I can’t say exactly if you ask me, I won’t know but I have done a lot. I can’t really put a figure to it but I have done a lot.

BON: Is there anything else Tope Osoba is into asides acting?

For now acting is the love of my life.

BON: How challenging has your job been?

It has been really challenging but trust me, I think I am strong enough to handle everything that comes along, besides nothing good comes easy.

BON: Are you in a relationship?

Yes! I am in a relationship but that is all I would say

BON: What is your boyfriend’s reaction to some of your acting roles?

Sincerely, he is giving me all the support I need, he doesn’t mind. He sees it as my job, it is my job because he knows me, he knows what I can do, so when he sees me doing some roles in a movie he doesn’t have a problem with it.

BON: If you are given the opportunity to change one thing in Nollywood, what would it be and why  would you want it changed?

Ok let me see, I think Nollywood has really changed but if you had asked me this question like 3-4 years ago I would have said a lot but right now I think Nollywood is doing well and everything is ok and in place sort of.

BON: Would you say Nollywood has been able to shed more light on the culture of the African woman?

Well, yes I would give them 51-70% but we need to do more when it comes to the acting.

BON: You said you can’t expose yourself in a movie, does it have anything to do with your background or with you as a person?

It has to do with a lot of things. First it has to do with my background, secondly it has to do with our culture and thirdly it has to do with me as a person I can’t go to the extreme because I have a limit.

What was growing up like for you?

For me growing up was fun because I was the first child of my parents and the first Grandchild so I had fun with my mum and dad

BON: Do you have anything to say to your fans?

For my fans I would say never stop believing in yourself, don’t let anybody bring you down just believe in yourself and do what you have to do basically.
