Career – Journey to Stardom
Adebimpe Oyebade started as a model before she featured on Yomi Fabiyi’s Agebede Meji where she played “Onikede”.
She started modelling officially in February 2016 when she got signed to GnG models.
When asked during an interview session how she got into acting, she said it was God’s grace as she is the shy type and didn’t realize she got the acting talent in her.
According to her, “it all started one evening when I got a BC message from one of the modelling group on Whatsapp. The BC message reads that models were needed to attend an audition of a movie titled “Crossroad” for a lead role. It was stated in the message that the producer needed a dark skinned girl (which is my selling point) for the role. My friend advised me to go for it which i felt reluctant to do.”
Few weeks later, I got another message requesting us to make a 1 minute crying video and soliloquy video to the producer’s email address. I just did it for fun cos I didn’t take it serious until I got a message from the producer that I have been picked for the role and that is how the journey started.
After her role in Agbede Meji, she has featured in many Yoruba and English movies. She is now a producer and she currently has four (4) movies to her credit. She released Entrapped in 2018 which featured the likes of Odunlade Adekola, Mercy Aigbe, Ogogo, Lateef Adedimeji, Bukola Adeeyo, Ibrahim Yekini (Itele) and other notable stars. She also released Dear Sister (2018) featuring Bolanle Ninalowo. Her third project in 2018 was “07:07” (July 7), a fantastic movie with a great story line that was borne out of deep inspiration.
in 2019, she released a blockburster two parts movie titled “Adebimpe Omo Oba” featuring Odunlade Adekola and host of other yoruba acts.
