The movie producer, who started his acting career in 2010, on M-net’s soap opera Tinsel, disclosed the struggles he went through when he first joined the Nollywood industry.

During an interview as a guest on “Tea with Taymesan’s podcast,” Timini made the disclosure as he claimed his sister, Dakore told him the movie Industry is not lucrative as it seems to be.

According to him, even upon the struggles, he had to go through, he knew it was more of a divine direction that he got from God.

In his words;

“I knew I was not going to do 9-5 because I am very restless. I knew that this waking up in the morning being in traffic, won’t be what it will be. So I started to look for alternatives, I knew I was not going to do ‘Yahoo’.

“I can’t be in a Police station or be in a cell. A lot of people at that time were going into that. Sometimes, guys will tell you, won’t you carry a laptop?

This one you are going to movie sets. Even Dakore used to tell me at the time that there is no money in Nollywood. What will you be doing?”

That’s why from the beginning it might seem like it was strategic, but it was more of a divine direction that I got from God to make sure that I am building a brand as well that people want to see.

What these other guys don’t understand is that you can’t only be a good actor, you have to be a marketable brand”.
