I Would Have Loved to Be a Singer – Fathia Balogun

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]ward winning actress cum movie producer, Fathia Balogun is one of the most sought-after actresses in the Yoruba movie industry, what with her poise and the finesse with which she gives life to every role she plays in a movie. Little wonder the light-skinned actress and proud mother of two, keeps excelling, in spite of all odds, in her cho­sen career. Fathia who recently screened her first comedy mov­ie titled Iya Alalake, discloses, in this chat, why she is passionate about the Yoruba heritage, her new project and several other issues.

2015 started on a good note for you with the winning of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award for the best indigenous film. Did you think you stood a chance considering the caliber of your contenders?

I did not even think about win­ning the award because I was there just like a normal guest attending the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award, a replica of the Oscars. I actually went there to catch some fun alongside my colleagues in the Yoruba sector. When the nominee list was called out, I thought to my­self, that well even if I did not win at the end of the day, at least it can be counted that I got nominated for the first time at the AMVCA.
