In entertainment news, Nigerian movie star, Bimbo Ademoye has said the first salary she earned for her debut movie was N12,500 (Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Naira).

She said that she producers informed her that she will get the payment six months after shooting.

Ademoye made this known during a chat with the YouTuber Hawa Magaji, as she opened up about personal issues she deals with in her career.

The Nollywood actress who said she battled with self-esteem issues that morphed into anxiety, also hinted that her parents’ divorce was a contributory factor.

According to Ademoye, she had low self-esteem since her childhood and it is something she had to learn to deal with in the movie industry.

The sensational actress also said she still experiences anxiety, and her dad helps her deal with it, hence the reason for the father-daughter bond they share.

She said; “If I’m in a room with more than 10 people, I start to have an anxiety attack. I think my social anxiety came from having low self-esteem issues growing up, not being with my parents. I grew up with this thought in my head that nobody wanted to be around me.

“I don’t really like human beings because I feel like they are full of shit based on my experience. Most times I love to be by myself. I’d rather not deal with the hurt that people tend to bring. I’d rather just be on my own and just be around the few people that I’ve given access to me.

“I’m still dealing with that even at this stage. That’s why I’m very close to my dad because [he] was very big on helping me with that. I wet the bed for a long time. I’m talking about SS2
and SS3. My dad laughed it off. My first ever acting gig, they told me they were going to pay me N12,500 and they were going to pay me six months after shooting. My dad paid for my shooting budget of N50,000 during the shoot.”
