Tobi Bakare is one of the ex-housemates of Big Brother Naija (BBN), where he emerged third. Bakare may not have won the reality show, but his name now rings loud in the entertainment industry as one of the new faces attracting attention of corporate brands.
Recently, he made his debut in Kunle Afolayan’s movie, ‘Mokaliki’, an experience Bakare says he hopes to keep building on.
In this interview , Bakare speaks on life after BBN, going into movies and how he plans to keep pushing his brand. Excerpts:
A lot has been happening to you since you left Big Brother Naija (BBN). Though, you didn’t win, you have been making every moment count with your involvement in a couple of projects. How do you feel about the life of fame and attention you are enjoying?
I feel happy and I am proud of how far I have come. The journey has just begun for me and I just want to keep pushing on and take on new opportunities. The fame is good, but that is not the focus for me. I have bigger plans that will be unveiled soon. This is just the beginning of a very long journey.
What kind of life did you picture before the BBN fame?
The fact is that before I got into the Big Brother House, I already had my plans and how to execute these plans. I wanted to do something for myself and be proud of my life afterwards.
I had a good job before BBN. Right now, I am doing something different but the hunger for success is still very big. The feeling is cool but I am not allowing it to get into my head. I just want to concentrate on my job.
