Yomi Fabiyi who is also a director cum producer, counted himself lucky that his parents did not object to his choice of career. Instead, they chose to support him with prayers. “My father was not always around. But my mum was quite worried when she observed that I was coming home late some nights. One day, when she asked me where I had been, I told her that I went in search of my destiny,” he said.
Making a comparison between the older generation of actors and the younger generation, Fabiyi said the former had better training and more exposure than the latter.
“To be honest, many of us lack adequate training and exposure. This has significantly affected the quality of many films produced in this country.”
The producer, who was caught up in a controversy over his marriage to a British lady last year, is still worried about the distance that exists between both of them.
“We are still living apart. She insists that she will not settle in Nigeria,” he said.
Contrary to general opinion, he denied that they were divorced. “I have only initiated the idea of suing for a divorce. I am still considering that option, though. The only problem is that my wife has to be physically present in Nigeria to be served the divorce papers. But she has refused to come,” he said.
