“Why I Dumped Journalism for Acting”-Movie Star, Flakky Ididowo Explains
Ogun State-born Yoruba actress, Ronke Odusanya aka Flakky Ididowo is a well-known Nigerian actress who has so many things working for her in the make-believe industry. She was once romantically linked with famous Fuji musician, Alabi Pasuma. Subsequently, the beautiful but controversial actress was linked with husband snatching scandal which trailed her for long before she later opened up in a recent interview she granted with a leading soft-sell magazine in country. When she was asked about why she chose acting rather than journalism which was her first interest before she enrolled at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State to study years back, she said, “I dumped my interest in journalism for acting simply because I tried it back then in School and it worked for me, a lot of people encouraged me that I can do better in acting and the English department of my school always engaged me in their rehearsals and stage performances which I think I did well, they extolled me and this really motivated me. So, I didn’t even look back before I went into it fully. If I wasn’t an actress I will probably be a broadcaster by now because I have always loved to be one of them. But right now, apart from acting, I do MC for events and I also do a little business by the side”.
