He added that he felt fulfilled when he started getting paid stipends for playing lead characters in movie. However his story is different now as he is successful and making it big in the movie industry.

Adedimeji wrote:

“Memories of the multiple times I got rejected, insulted, Ridiculed and bullied that ACTING is not my career path and that I’ll never make it in this field that I choose.

‘’I remember the times I almost gave up on myself and the career; I remember crying endlessly and told myself it’s better to die. Memories of the times I walked hours to get on set and rehearsals simply because I had no tfare. I remember when I had to be a camera boy, Wash Oga’s Cars.

“Then the times i finally started getting paid 1k, 2k, 5k for a lead role, I remember receiving the payments with so much joy, happiness and gratitude. This journey of mine from being just a little boy with big dreams to becoming the Superstar that I am today has come with a lot of challenges and Stories untold. I’ll tell the whole story someday to inspire one or two.”
