I’d love to play single mum – Tems considers acting career

Popular musician, Temilade Openiyi, known professionally as Tems, has hinted at joining the movie industry sometime in the future.

The Grammy winning singer stated in a recent interview with BBC Capital Xtra London, that she would love to play single-mum roles in movies.

Tems, who was raised by a single mother in Lagos, however, said the role doesn’t have to be one of her struggling with her kid(s).

She said, “I’m ready to act in movies. Not ready right now but I’m already good at acting. The first character I would love to play is a single mum.

“It doesn’t need to be struggling. It could be like a fun single mum or a single mum that has mysteries. A gangster.”

CorrectNG recall that famous Kannywood actress, Aisha Muhammed Jogana, said she is ready to quit acting for marriage.

She made the statement during an interview, adding that she is currently in a relationship with someone in the industry.

The movie star said; “I am seriously in a relationship with someone who is equally in the industry. I am ever ready to leave acting for marriage at any point in time.”

On whether her parents opposed her decision to venture into acting, Aisha said; “Indeed, I faced serious resistance from my family. It was then that I learnt that the industry has been perceived differently by different people.

“It took me time to convince my family to allow me try my luck in acting. After serious persuasions and providing convincing reasons, my family gave their consent, but it wasn’t easy.

“They were all based on misconception and ill-informed concocted stories created to dent the image of operators and the film industry. The good thing is that I was able to change all those ill-conceived notions barely few days into my joining the industry as an actress.

“Many failed to take acting as a profession and as such they also failed to see the operators as people earning lawful earnings.”
