Temilade Kosoko, daughter to veteran actor Jide Kosoko has noted that being the child of a celebrity came with its downsides.

She made this known in a recent interview with Sunday Scoop.

She said: “Inasmuch as it is something to be proud of that my dad is a celebrity, it is also disturbing because some people pick on one because they think one is privileged. It is sad that some people see being poor as badge that they have to carry about. I get a lot of hate comments; people being jealous of me for no reason. And, I keep asking, ‘What did I do wrong’? I am a jovial person, but people think I am proud. Those are some of the challenges I face.”

She further noted that she gained more followers on her social media platforms after she pulled a wedding prank.

She said, “It made me have more followers, especially on Facebook. Before now, I had just a thousand followers on Facebook, and after the prank, I have 20,000 followers. People like ‘amebo’ (gossip).”

She further disclosed how she featured in a skit with Mr. Macaroni in 2021.

“My first skit was with Mr Macaroni in 2021. It also featured another actor, Yomi Fash-Lanso. I was meant to travel to Abuja the next day to Abuja. But, Macaroni called me and said he wanted to feature me in a skit the next day. So, I cancelled my flight because I decided to look at the bigger picture. I was just going to Abuja to relax at my Aunty’s place. Meanwhile, being in the skit has added value to my career.”
