Oyebade Adebimpe started modeling officially in February 2016, at first it wasn’t so easy but luckily for her, she got signed to an agency (GnG models).
Oyebade Adebimpe aslo Started off her acting career in December 2016, in an interview she narrated what brought her to acting.
“Acting was never really my thing because I’m a bit of a shy person and I didn’t know I have such talent in me. Modeling is a lot different from acting, I was in Benin one evening and I got a BC from one of the modeling WhatsApp group chats that models were needed to attend an audition of a movie titled ‘Crossroad’ for a particular role (lead role). It stated in the text message that the producer needed a dark skinned girl for the role. A fair friend from the same group chatted me up and advised me to go for it, I told her I was in Benin and there was no way.
Few weeks later, I got another text message stating that people should start auditioning online, meaning you have to send your pictures, details, one minute crying video and one minute soliloquy video to a particular email address (the producer’s).
Another friend of mine advised I try my luck, I decided to make the videos, had fun while at it though but to be honest I didn’t take it seriously until I got a text message a week after via an email that I was picked for the role! I thought it was a joke until I later met with the producer and some other crewmembers.
I’m glad I was part of the project and still grateful to the producer (Mr yomi Fabiyi) for believing in me so much and allowing me to play such a challenging role alongside Nollywood stars like Toyin Aimakhu, Gabriel Afolayan, Sola Kosoko, Kemi Afolabi, Debbie Shokoya, Yomi Fabiyi himself and many more.”
