Prince Jide Kosoko, one of Nigeria’s most famous actors, has been an actor for over 6 decades.
This was not only in Yoruba films, but also in English-language films with the presence of a hippo.
He is so talented that colleagues consider him a chameleon when it comes to hiring characters to translate his roles. The famous actor strips down on a number of issues affecting the industry and his personal life.
A bad relationship is just bad. There is nothing I can do about the worst. I decided not to react because I believe that I am more than them. Plus, the more I react, the more copies they sell. I don’t need to cry over spilled milk at this level.
Actors love womanizers
This is far from the truth. Indeed, we are one of those professions whose representatives are very disciplined. People tend to make noise in everything we do as public figures. This does not mean that we do not use dates and do not sleep with each other. A profession is a blessing, and people should also see the positive aspects of our profession. We educate, entertain, exhort, educate the world through our works of art.
The film doesn’t highlight the actor, but the continuity does. When people see a certain face in good productions, they notice that face, and over time they come to terms with it. This is how glory comes. This is why I hate some of my colleagues who believe they can turn an actor into a celebrity overnight. The continuous process of making quality films has brought me to the fore.
How to be a public figure
He robbed me of my privacy. The moment you become a public figure, your life becomes the business of other people. You have to pretend to be a gentleman, even if you are a scoundrel. We learn to manage our lives on stage, even when we’re not on set. Many of us have learned to live a fake life to please and keep our fans, people who see us as role models.
The life of a polygamist:
I never imagined that I would become a polygamist, although I am his product. Even my parents did not support it. My first wife was a business woman. I wanted someone who would be in the same area with me. Then the best advice you can get is from your beloved, and this is how the second woman was born. In the end, I lost two to having a baby during the 11 month hiatus. I had seven children at the time, so I had no plans to get married or have children again. But after much persuasion from my doctor and relatives, I decided to have a woman with an agreement that I would no longer have children, but a plump African woman would not agree. One thing led to another, and I have two women again. So it is not intentional to be a polygamist, this is God’s plan, to which I have no right.
