Ayoola Ayolola, a Nollywood actor and SGIT series star has spoken about why he chose to pursue a career in acting.

Ayoola spoke in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.

Ayolola recounted how he became the actor that his followers know him to be, claiming that he had always known he could act.

According to him, he knew he had acting skills but didn’t pursue it until he was bankrupt and unable to feed himself.

He said:

“I always knew I could act. I had this mentality that as a stage performer, I was acting as well. I always knew that no matter what happened before going on stage, I would go there and I would deliver. The fact that I was doing that gave me the courage to try acting. But the decision didn’t come until I was so broke and so hungry.”

Not hungry for success o, I was physically hungry for days and I couldn’t afford things,” he said. “I was borrowing from here to pay for this and borrowing from there to pay for that.

It was a mess. I had my car that I had won and the leverage and whatever but liquid cash I didn’t have. I wasn’t smart enough at the time to convert the things I had at the time into sustainability financially. So I was bored, broke, and hungry,” he told Chude.

The ‘The Men’s Club’ actor also said he became depressed and contemplated suicide after he was expecting a child he wasn’t ready for.

According to him, he wasn’t prepared to be a father so he decided to end it all. Speaking in a candid interview with Chude Jideonwo, Ayoola said looking at his son now he regretted his action.

He said,

“The time the pregnancy for my son came, I wasn’t prepared to be a father. I got depressed and almost took my life. I deliberately miscalculated while crossing the road so that I would be hit and the car just brushed me.

“I look at my son now and I’m like, ‘This is what I was about to miss? This is whose life I was about to destroy?’ This little boy would have been fatherless.”

 “When I was 10 years old, I used to listen to Davido. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying he is very old. His first song that I listened to was ‘Back When.’”
