My son dragged me into film business –Gmoney

Bamidele Adunke Gbemisola a.k.a Gmoney is an actress and a produce. She shares are experience in the industry with Tosin Ogundipe.

On the different factions in the Yoruba industry

I am not in any caucus because I don't believe in caucus I only believe in the work of my hand. I only have friends. But if I need to learn more about acting I do the research on the internet.
On her education
I went to Olabisi Onabanjo University were I did not graduate because of some personal reasons.
On her marital status
I am a single mother.
On her 'single-hood’
Since when I was pregnant and that is 6 years ago. It is not an easy task but my wonderful family(most especially my mother) stood by me, my friend also put me through in all what I am doing. Also my lovely son is there for me till am able to get the right man. I just don't want to be in a hurry.
On acting
Acting as always been what I love and have passion for. I love acting and got inspired by Indian films. When you watch Indian film, you see the acting there and I build myself in the character. After watching Indian film, I went in front of the mirror to act what I have watched. My son made me join the industry fully because a producer wants my son to act in a movie and I accept and I took my son to the location. It came to a time when my son cannot do without me so the producer asked me to play a role in the movie. I accepted and I did the job perfectly.  With the acknowledgment from fans and others who felt I was good, it has been a passionate journey for me.
On challenges
Yes there are. The only challenge am having is the marketing aspect. There are good and bad marketers. Someone should just pray to meet the good ones that would encourage you with the job to keep producing.
On Mentoring
Sharukh khan is an Indian actor, I like the way he talk and the way he acts. But my mentor in Nigeria is Genevieve Nnaji.
On parent's reaction
My parent didn't support me because of the bad view they have heard about actress that they sleep around. But eventually they supported me.
On other jobs aside acting
I travel to Dubai to buy goods for sale but for now I have stopped.
On produced works
have produce 3 movies and they are Mopesola, Omo Orukan, Itiju and am working on the 4th one Aworan Ife which we soon be out.
On Movie cast
Yomi Gold, Aduke Gbemisola, Joke Jigan, Dipo  Olajide, Mariam Kareem and my son, Ibijuwon Ibikunle.
On words to fans
I love them so much without God and them am nobody. I want to thank my family,  Akinmorin and the Kazeems for their support. And they should also watch out for my movie Aworan Ife.
