Lateef Adedimeji - Why I'm Bracing For a Backlash Over Playing Tinubu


Tinubu: Lateef Adedimeji on why he is bracing for criticism.

Actor Lateef Adedimeji, who just appeared in a new film portraying politician and APC National Leader Bola Tinubu, says he's ready for any criticism.

"There will be a lot of misconceptions, especially with everything that is happening now," the Nollywood actor, who is now filming a soon-to-be-released biography called "Last Man Standing," told Saturday Beats. However, since I am merely performing my job, I am well prepared for everything that may occur. I pray to God to help me.

After hearing about the project, my first reaction was to decline the part out of hand. When it comes to politics, I've always tried to avoid it. One of Nigeria's most powerful men, Tinubu is more than just another politician. He has enormous acclaim and respect. The timing of this biopic's publication coincides with a number of current concerns.

Nonetheless, I expect it to be a new challenge for me as an actor." Taking this is a way for me to push myself farther. "I want to test my limits once more."

When asked about his preparation for the part, the actor replied that, despite the fact that he had never met Tinubu in person, he had done extensive study on him and was ready to do his best. "It's always scary to play a real person who's still alive," he said. If the individual is no longer around, it's a different ball game. However, this is a person who is still living. When someone impersonates him, he's inclined to be critical if he doesn't do it right. It takes a lot of time and effort. "I had to study his mannerisms and try to imitate the way he talks, moves, and even smiles."

Also, the actor asked the audience to go into the film with an open mind. He stated, "It's inevitable that there will be a variety of viewpoints." Nevertheless, I believe that people should be aware that even if awful things are said about someone, they should take the time to investigate the facts."

Also, the newlywed actor added that Adebimpe Oyebade nicknamed Mo'Bimpe, aka his wife and colleague, is his greatest supporter and critic, as well as his biggest fan and supporter. "My 'hype person' is my wife," he stated. She is the one who gives me encouragement when I am being hard on myself. Similarly, when it's the other way around, she doesn't hold back.
