Jide Kosoko's last daughter Temilade opened up on the negative effects her father had in her acting career saying that she is not happy when people attach her acting success to her father.
My Career Has Been Affected Negatively by Having Jide Kosoko as My Father, My Daughter Says 4
The final child of legendary actor Jide Kosoko, Temilade, has discussed the influence her father had on her acting career.
She recently admitted in an interview that she dislikes it when people attribute her acting career to her father.
She admitted that she met the majority of the people she knows in the film and entertainment industries on her own, without her father’s assistance.
In an interview with Legit NG, she spoke.
First of all, even though school was only supposed to last four years, I’m happy to have finished it after six.
And since I am actually just emerging from it, I can’t really say much about what is going to be right now. Life after school has been essentially the same.
However, it is not as if I have never worked in the field; the main distinction is that I would now have more time for my job.
It is a lengthy story, and I would want to discuss it more in private. My career and I have experienced both positive and negative side effects from being Jide Kosoko’s daughter.
On the plus side, I’ve been able to network more effectively, even though I met the majority of the individuals I know directly rather than through my father.
She went on to say:
“My dad doesn’t often introduce me to others. I don’t like it when people link my achievement or me to my father.
She said, “I really miss my mom.”
“I always say that having a famous father has done me more harm than good. First of all, it frequently gives people an entirely false idea of you.
“When people see you, they often assume that you are proud, and before you can even show them that you are not, they begin to berate you.
I work at a lot of places, and as soon as people learn that I’m Jide Kosoko’s daughter, they all just start acting rudely toward me.
Temi stated in reference to the high expectations that come along with being an actor like her parents:
“They nearly always expect you to do more when you’re featured or a star in a movie you will hear. People remark things like, “Well, she got it because she’s the daughter of this and that,” even if you perform. Flawlessly and land the part. This is untrue because I genuinely worked hard to land the role. However, I must admit that the name greatly respects me.
