In an interview with The Nation, the billionaire daughter explained how she met ace film maker, Kunle Afolayan, and how she ended up playing the lead character in his new movie.

She said: “I have been watching Mr. Afolayan’s films like forever. From ‘Figurine’ to ‘October 1’, ‘Phone Swap’, and I was actually introduced to him, I told him that from university and through school I have always been into acting and that was my first passion in life and he told me about a script coming out and the lead character is actually a girl of my age and a university student and the story tells a tale of something that is so relatable and relevant to what is happening today, not only in Nigeria but all over the world.”

Speaking on why she kept her love for acting on the low key, Temi said it was all about timing and that when the opportunity came, she felt she would be able to pull it off.

The 23-year-old also said she is not leaving fashion for acting but that acting has been her one true love even though both are very close to her heart.

She said: “Both of them are still very close to my heart; I will always be designing and doing fashion, but also, this is my one true love. So I’ll continue acting.”
