Movie producers wanted to exploit my body – Actress Bimbo Ademoye

She disclosed this in a recent interview with Sun Newspaper.
The comic actress said it was Uduak Isong who first gave her the opportunity to showcase her talent and since then her career has been flourishing.
She said, “Everybody wanted to make use of my body. Everybody wanted me to play the sexy secretary or the girl that snatched someone’s husband, or the one that snatched the other person’s boyfriend.
“But it was Uduak Isong that took a chance on me. She gave me a role different from what I was used to and since then, it has been amazing. People started calling me to come and act this comedy role, come and feature in this and that. It has really been very wonderful since then.”
