Funsho Adeolu speaks on why Yoruba speaking actors do not have six packs, says they are not models

Nollywood actor Funsho Adeolu opened up on a lot of issues in a recent interview. Not only did he talk about his marital life and how he has kept his relationship intact, he also weighed in on the wide gaped physical differences between actors in Yoruba speaking films and those in the English movie settings. Funsho, in addressing the latter topic, admitted that English speaking actors looked better in physical appearances than the Yoruba speaking ones. With the six packs, sharp shoulder muscles, smooth skins and demeanor of popular English actors, it is very easy to spot how dissimilar they are from their counterpart actors who are not in the least bothered about putting on extra flesh. But then, despite his admittance, Funsho Adeolu, who is a prolific Yoruba actor himself, has gone on to justify the difference. According to him, English actors were the way they were because they were not as busy as the Yoruba dramatists.

The fact that people looked up to them as models has made having six packs and being manly a necessity. Read his words below: “They have a lot of time to do exercises. They are models and not really actors; I am not joking. A busy actor would only think of his health and do the normal exercise to keep fit. What am I using a six-pack for? I want to dress and be seen as a role model. In the Yoruba-speaking movie setting, when you get to a particular age, you would not be given the role of a small boy so I do not need a six-pack. By the time you keep a six-pack, it gets to a point where it turns to a nonsense pack because they would not use it again. The only thing is to live a healthy life.

I learnt taekwondo as well. I am not saying having a six-pack is bad or that it is bad to look nice. If I have to take a picture, I can easily tuck in my tummy. I started from the English-speaking genre and then came to the Yoruba-speaking part of the industry. I am more comfortable with the Yoruba-speaking sector of the industry because I learn a lot here. In the English-speaking sector, I do not learn anything."

According to him, making his wife feel extra special in the household was the key to his long, sustaining relationship with her. His exact words were these: “I decided when I was a child that I would not have a broken home because I grew up in one. I said that my children would grow up to see both their parents together till we die. I thank God that we have never had any crisis that has shaken the foundation of our marriage.
