Adigun Nafisat Abidemi (also known as Atupa), a fast-rising Nollywood actress based in the United States who has vowed to leave no stone unturned in her quest to become a super star in the make-believe industry, has recalled her first kiss and how it made her feel.
The filmmaker, who has produced three films, also stated in an interview with a news reporter that she is not attracted to men her age.
“I had my first kiss when I was 20 part 2 on campus,” Adigun Nafisat said. It was like something out of a Korean film. It was strange and unexpected. I am unable to marry a younger lover. I am not attracted to younger people; most of my close friends are older people. I enjoy being around people who have more experience than me, and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon.”
Adigun Nafisat recalled some of her childhood memories, saying, “I had so many fun memories growing up, I was raised by grandparents initially.” I enjoy my grandfather giving me 20naira mints in exchange for 15naira bread. I wasn’t born with a silver spoon, but I was born with a spoon. My family is fascinating and extremely welcoming; I come from a very good family.”
The actress also mentioned how supportive her parents were when she decided to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
“At first, my parents, particularly my father, were uninterested. He wanted me to study law, and I was known as The Law at home… He had no choice but to be very supportive when he saw my drive and passion for filmmaking, and he has been significant since my first film. I’m not in a relationship. I am still single and concentrating on my career; we all know how men are afraid to date actresses. Until I find the One who accepts me for who I am and is willing to support my dreams. This is exactly what I believe in: “you should either have a supportive partner or no partner; there is no third option,” stated Adigun Nafisat.
