Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham has opened up on her past failure, which she did not allow to deter her from the future.

Toyin Abraham, who is currently in the UK with her family for a vacation, took to her Instagram page to recount how she could not sell out the show nor fill up the cinema hall when her movie ‘Alakada Reloaded’ showed in the UK.

However, fast forward to this year, she did not only sell out a huge hall but sold out the hall in less than three days, and the turnout was massive.

While expressing appreciation to God for the journey so far, Toyin Abraham said that whatever is for someone would never pass them, but they all need to keep pushing.

She wrote: Few years ago, I showed Alakada Reloaded at Odeon Cinemas, UK. I didn’t have a sold out show neither did I fill up the hall.

Fast forward to this year, not only did I sell out a huge hall but I sold out the hall in less than 3 days. The turnout was massive and the love was huge. Couldn’t be more grateful for the journey so far.

Looking back, I realise that what is yours won’t ever pass you by. Keep pushing, never give up, your time will definitely come.. Every dream you have is valid and when it comes true you will not only see it but everyone around you will testify to it.

Dubai we are bringing “The Ghost and the Tout Too” to you next, are you ready?????

Kemi Filani News recalls Kolawole Ajeyemi and husband to Toyin Abraham recently reacted to the misconception that his wife is older than him.

Kolawole Ajeyemi, in an interview with the Tribune, opened up several things from his career, love life, background and marrying Toyin Abraham.

Speaking on the speculation that Toyin Abraham is older than him, Kolawole Ajeyemi said it is not true as he is older than his wife and also joined the Nollywood industry before her.

On his wife Toyin Abraham being more famous and richer than him, Kolawole Ajeyemi said it is no big deal as God owns fame or money and gives freely to whoever.

An excerpt from the interview read:

Some say she is older than you are, some say she is richer or more popular, what do you say to all these?

(Laughs) I have said I won’t say much about my family, but I think I have to address this. I was born in 1979 and I have a lot of colleagues that know my age. As I said earlier, I joined the industry in 1997 and I believe she hasn’t joined the industry then.

So, subtract my age from 1997 when I joined the industry and compare it. So, I am older than my wife. Then on the issue of being richer or more popular, money or no money, popular or not, God is the one who owns money or fame and freely gives to whoever.

Whether I am the one who is more popular or rich, or she is, the fact remains that we are both popular and rich. It is no big deal if my wife is richer than I am, in as much as none of us is being arrogant to the other over this. There is no issue because, at the end of the day, it is good for both parties, you assist each other.

On popularity, I am also doing well for myself. I have been in the industry and doing well even before I met my wife, and I make my living from what I do. Currently, I have a clothing line – Kola Ajeyemi Clothings and Shoes. I also have a large farm, a very big one. So, I am doing well for myself and I am okay with that. She is doing well too and I have never for once wished she comes down. I am not that kind of guy, I wasn’t brought up that way. I pray she continues to go up and I remain at the top.

But my wife is not older than I am, I was born in 1979 and a lot of people know this. So, for those talking all about whether she is older than I am or not, they are the ones who cause issues between husbands and wives. I want to say they should stop that. If they don’t stop, those in the marriage too shouldn’t allow talks like that to get to them.
