In the Yoruba movie genre of Nollywood, Feranmi Ekisola is a well-known actress whom many respect for her integrity and perseverance. She got into acting a couple of years ago via Odunfa Caucus led by Veteran Actor, Yinka Quadri. The Ibadan Oyo State-born actress, who is married to an Ijebu man, has over the years shunned out blockbuster movies including Perosayemi which featured virtually the top actors of the industry and the film was released by High-Waves Video Mart 2 years ago.ekisola
Apart from acting, she is also a caterer and she has catered for big events as well as private functions. She is the boss of Ele Concepts. She is also the brain behind Let The Widows Smile Foundation, a non-governmental organization she established some years back to support widows in Nigeria.
According to her, “I intend to celebrate the widows this year sequel to my failure to do that last year due to a fatal accident I had, but this year, they will all smile. ekiPeople keeps asking me this question if I am a widow but I want to tell you that I am not and I don’t pray to be one at my age. I have passion for widows, I was once a victim. I lost my father close to 4 decades and Nigerians don’t honour widows after their husband’s death, they don’t have anyone to support them and that is why I decided to always celebrate and support them. I am giving back to them with my little quota. I am calling on well-being Nigerians, Government to also support this foundation in order to do more for our widows. Apart from having annual event for them, I have a set of widows whom I wouldn’t want to display on pages of newspapers that I pay monthly no matter token it may be. Some will even come for other assistance which I won’t hesitate”. fera
She further spoke on why she titled the new movie testimony, “I thank God for my life, my kids, husband, my mum. God has been wonderful to us and that is why I titled the movie Testimony. I have a testimony to share and you shall see that in the flick. I established Ele Concepts which is the name for my catering outfit and there is no particular weekend that I don’t have an event to cater for, not my power but God. My kids has been a source of joy to me, they are testimony to share with people”.fer
