Who is Kemi Bakare?
Adekemi Bakare a.k.a skerry, is from Osun State, Nigeria.

I attended Subola Memorial Primary school, Ibadan and then proceeded to St Annes School before I later crossed over to Wesley College of Science where I sat for my SSCE. I gained admission to the Osun State Polytechnic, Esa Oke where I studied Electrical-Electronics and I also obtained a degree in Electrical-Electronics at the University of Ibadan,Oyo State.

Your nickname Skerry, what does it mean?
It's an lrish name and it means solid or hard. I was given that name in my secondary school days because I was sociable, brilliant and tough.

How did you come into the movie industry?
After my degree, I left for the United States and it was from there I picked interest in acting.

Why did you relocate to Nigeria?
I joined Nollywood in 2008 when I came back into the country fully to pursue my acting career, I started with Nias production through a senior in secondary school, Ayo Adesanya. I then left to stand on my own to start Laskerry production in 2001.

I've done a lot. They include Ajaga, Oju Olodumare, Yegi Yegi, Agbada Ita, Oju Oro, Osumare and Super Mummy series.
