I was almost 30 before I stood in front of a camera- Femi Jacobs
Oluwafemisola ‘Femi’ Jacobs is one Nollywood actor who has consistently interpreted his roles well. The Ile-Ife born role interpreter who is mostly known for his role in ‘Taxi Driver’, also doubles as a singer, speaker and writer.
Though he is a sought after actor, Femi noted that he didn’t start acting until he was almost 30.
According to him: ”A lot of people know me as an actor, but I was almost 30 before I ever stood in front of a camera for the first time. So, describing me as an actor is missing the whole point. I cherish that privilege, I love the fact that I am able to do that, I like the fact that a lot of people connect to me at that level, I like the fact that I am able to win awards doing that, I really really cherish that.
But that’s just the doing person. That’s just one of the things I did. I went to flying school, I started businesses, I was a musician from the time I was 14 years old, so all of those things are just the doing,” he told Pulseng.
The entertainer also noted that he prefers Wizkid to Davido, adding that he has a crush on Kelly Rowland
