Nollywood actress and reality TV star, Bisola Aiyeola, has revealed how being a mother shapes the roles she accepts in movies.

Aiyeola, a single mother of one said she is always conscious of the acting roles she accepts in the movie industry because of her child.

“I have a growing child and sometimes some of the roles you take can affect her positively or negatively.

“Especially because she is growing… You have other children around her who have different thoughts on what their parents do and so I have to be careful with some stories because I have to think that, in the long run, would it be a good look for my child?’” the actress was quoted as saying.


Aiyeola said her trajectory has been one of patience and putting her daughter first, no matter what.

She added that, unknown to many, she has been in the industry for years, even before going on the Big Brother Naija reality show in 2017.

She also pointed out that her passion has been her driving force.
