    One of Nigeria’s foremost cross-over actresses, Foluke Daramola, has revealed that when she started her career, her mother, a widow, was initially not comfortable with it because of her aversion for negative publicity. Her philosophy was that with the media, you had no private life of your own; all eyes, including your enemies’, would be on you.

    Mrs. Aderonke Daramola, Foluke’s mom lost her husband in 1981 and was left to fend for four kids. Though young and attractive, she refused to re-marry, maintaining that marriage to another man would not give her the time to take care of her children.

    “The sacrifice was not for her late husband but for her kids. So, she wanted to protect us by all means,” Foluke comments on this weekend’s edition of the celebrity Supermom show.

    Thus, when she discovered that her beloved daughter had started acting at a most impressionable age, she was infuriated.

    “My mom is a very conservative person and so never wanted any unnecessary attention and bad comments about any of her children. She would always say ‘you’re not born to do this thing, I don’t want you to do it.’”
