When you talk about Nollywood bad boys, I almost always add Deyemi to my list. I first saw him on the show Desperate House girls on Iroko Tv. Then I saw him in the movies “In our trap,” “taxi,” “diary of a crazy Nigerian woman” and “dreams.” After which I fell in love with his style of acting.
It took me a while to reach out to Deyemi because I had this idea that he was this guy who would totally brush me off if I asked him for an interview. After following him closely in our group “VentVille” on Facebook, my idea of him changed. I realized that he is a very approachable person. Every week he makes motivational posts encouraging us to believe in ourselves and he generally posts positive messages to give us something to smile about. He’s all about self worth and being true to whom you are.
One thing I like about Deyemi is his dedication to putting his family first. In his world, family is everything 🙂
To me, Deyemi is effortlessly stylish. He reminds me of the old Victorian men, with their hats, bow ties and fitted jackets. I admire the fact that when it comes to fashion, he can float comfortably between old and modern. It’s just like art 🙂 Apart from RMD, Deyemi is the only one I can forgive for wearing skinny flooded(ankle length/cropped) trousers with no socks. Funny enough, he has been said to be compared to RMD(Richard Mofe Damijo). Even when it comes to the infamous “beard gang” I am NOT a fan. But you see, Deyemi’s beard, it’s a Super Hero. In fact, it’s the real Black Panther 🙂
I remember seeing him in a movie and he was actually eating. I thought “this ajebutter!” Little did I know that his favorite food is Amala with Gbegiri, Ewedu and Ogufe(goat meat). I would really like to see a picture or a video of Deyemi with his fingers stained with Nigerian red stew mixed with some silky yellow bean soup(Gbegiri). That would be a million dollar sight 🙂
