Veteran Yoruba actor, Abdulganiu Olayeni, popularly known as Alapinni Oosa, tells EMMANUEL OJO about his experiences in taking the role of a herbalist in movies and his life journey so far

You’ve been acting for a while now. What motivated you to take up a career in acting?

It is passion; the passion for the job got me there because when I watched our fathers on television back then, Duro Ladipo, Kola Ogunmola, and others, I started developing an interest in it. I didn’t know how I got into acting; I just saw myself doing it but I suffered because I started from scratch. I learned from my predecessors. I worked very hard, from one village to another before I returned to Lagos.
