Here’s my list of 5 tallest Yoruba actresses I know. Asides being ‘lengthy’, they are gifted, beautiful and know the ropes of acting.
1) Funke Adesiyan- Even with marks on her face, the Oyo-state indigene is beautiful. The graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State. Funke jumpstarted her career in 2003 when she featured in Wale Adenuga Productions’ Super story and Papa Ajasco series. She has so far featured in over 20 movies. Her movies; Obinrin Ale, Ayo Kulehin, Ore bi Ota, Oju Apa temi. etc
2) Bisi Ibidapo-Obe-is one actress who needs no introduction. The Osun State thespian became popular after her lead role in a film titled ‘Omologbalogba’ where she played the role of a flirtatious student. Bisi is also a power-dresser. She’s featured in Onome Aganga, Oko Mi, Omo Jesu, Iyanje to mention a few
3) Sola Asedeko- Fair in complexion and pretty actress shot into limelight after her role in Tunde Kelani’s ‘Abeni. Sola who is enjoying a burgeoning career remains one of the most-sought after actresses in Nigeria. The graduate of creative Arts has featured in Narrow Path, Omo Ghetto, Oga, Campus Queen, Afesona etc
4)Mosun Filani-Oduoye- The Tai Solarin University of Education graduate actress has been acting since 2005 but she became a focus of attention after her role in Funke Akindele’s ‘Jenifa’ produced in 2009.
She’s starred in Iran Kefa, Ibugbe, Ise Onise, Igbese Kan and many more. The Ekiti-born actress tied the knots last month.
5) Fathia Balogun- she is one of the most-popular actresses in Nollywood. This stunning and ageless mother of three has over the years made a big mark in the yoruba movie industry.
Even with new actors streaming in, the enstranged wife of an actor (Saidi Balogun) refuses to be intimidated. She’s been involved in countless movie projects; Farayola, Aje meta, Asa, Onome Aganga, Alakada, Otelemuye etc
