“Having a celebrity dad has done more harm to me than good”- Jide Kosoko’s daughter, Temilade

“Having a celebrity dad has done more harm to me than good”- Jide Kosoko’s daughter, Temilade

Temilade Kosoko, the last daughter of famous actor Jide Kosoko, has spoken out about the negative effect of being the child of her father has had on her acting career.

Temi stated that having a celebrity dad has both a positive and negative effect, emphasizing mostly on the negative side.

During a recent interview, she stated that she dislikes it when people attribute her success in acting to her father.

She claims that without her father’s assistance, she has met the majority of the people she is familiar with in the film and entertainment industries.

Speaking about her mother, she emphasized on how much she misses her.

She said:

“First of all, I am glad to finally finish school after six years, even though it was supposed to be four years. And life after school has been almost the same because in truth I am just coming out of it, I can’t really say much about what is going to be right now. But It is not like I have not been in the industry before, the major difference now is just that I would have more time for my career.

It is a long story; I wish I could speak more about this privately. Being Jide Kosoko’s daughter has had negative and positive side effects on me and my career. On the good side, I have been able to network better, although most of the people I know, I got to know them myself and not through my father.

My dad barely introduces me to anybody. I don’t really like it when people attach me or my success to my dad.

I tell people that being the daughter of a celebrity has done more harm than good to me. First of all, It usually makes people have an impression about you that’s totally wrong.

Many people see you, and they automatically think you’re proud, so before you can even prove to them that you’re not they are already giving you attitude. There are so many places that I work into and once they know that I’m Jide Kosoko’s daughter they all just start giving me attitude.”

Temi spoke about the high expectations that come with being an actor like her parents.

She said:

“When it comes to being featured or starred in movies, they almost always expect you to do more. Even if you’re doing it perfectly and you get the role, you will hear people say things like, ehn she got it because she’s the daughter of this and that. This is not true because I have actually put in the effort to get the role. Though to be honest the name accords me a lot of respect.”
