Nollywood actress and model, Bimbo Ademoye has taken to social media to praise her father for his support all through her acting career.

According to Bimbo, her father paid for her shooting budget of N50,000 after she was told that her first shoot salary was N12,500 which would be given to her six months after filming.

Speaking in an interview with YouTuber, Hawa Magaji, the actress noted that her father decided to support her shoot so she could feature in the movie.

Bimbo also revealed her struggle with low self-esteem which led to anxiety.

Her words,

“If I’m in a room with more than 10 people, I start to have an anxiety attack. I think my social anxiety came from having low self-esteem issues growing up, not being with my parents. I grew up with this thought in my head that nobody wanted to be around me.

“I don’t really like human beings because I feel like they are full of shit based on my experience. Most times I love to be by myself. I’d rather not deal with the hurt that people tend to bring. I’d rather just be on my own and just be around the few people that I’ve given access to me.

“I’m still dealing with that even at this stage. That’s why I’m very close to my dad because [he] was very big on helping me with that. I wet the bed for a long time. I’m talking about SS2 and SS3. My dad laughed it off.

My first ever acting gig, they told me they were going to pay me N12,500 and they were going to pay me six months after shooting. My dad paid for my shooting budget of N50,000 during the shoot.”
