Political Appointment Won’t Make Me Quit Acting — Femi Adebayo

Veteran indigenous Nollywood actor Femi Adebayo needs no introduction in Nigeria movie scene. Aside from being son to legendary Yoruba actor Adebayo Salami known as Oga Bello, Femi Adebayo is sometimes referred to as a poster boy for Yoruba movies industry.

Barely few week ago, Femi Adebayo was appointed as special Special Adviser to the Governor of Kwara State, AbdulFatah Ahmed, on tourism and culture.

In recent interview with Saturday Beats, Femi address several reports that he’s quitting acting for politics, he refused the title of being ” Ladies Man ” and also his plans for marriage.

He believes  his new position is currently a huge distraction to his career.

He said that although the appointment has taken most of his time, he has no regrets.
He said,

“I was called to serve and I would give it all I got. Serving as the special assistant to the governor of Kwara State is a huge distraction but I do not mind because the society has given me so much and it is time for me to give back. I cannot remember the last time I went to a movie location.”
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actor shut down rumours that he was gradually quitting acting for politics, emphasising that his post is only an appointment and not an elective one.
“I am not a politician. It is an appointment and not an elective post. It is a call to serve and the governor believes that I am capable enough to handle the area of arts, culture and tourism of my state and that is why I was appointed, I am not a politician,” he said.
Known to be a ladies’ man, the actor modestly refused the title, claiming that he has mutual respect for all his fans both male and female.
He also told Saturday Beats about his plans for marriage.
“I am not a ladies’ man. My female fans appreciate my work and I appreciate my fans as well.”
 On whether he has any plans for marital life anytime soon, the actor simply said, “I am waiting for God’s time.”
The actor further told Saturday Beats that his plate is very full at the moment because apart from being a special adviser to the governor, he just bagged an endorsement deal with a real estate company, Kayode-Obembe &CO.
“I recently bagged an endorsement deal with Kayode-Obembe &CO and I am glad to be a part of the team. I had several offers but I decided to be a part of this because it is a very reputable company. Before I accepted the offer, I did my investigation and I was very convinced that this company is highly reputable and reliable and the CEO is a pastor. It means that I am on the right path,” he said.
