“Anti Bimbo, I miss you so much,” actor Moyo Lawal shouted after fellow lead Bimbo Akintola went missing in action since late 2021.
A check on Bimbo Akintola’s social media platforms showed that the last time she was active on them was in 2021 when she wished media personality, Nancy Isime a happy birthday, and before that, she was out of the social scene and was not spotted at public functions.
She has also not been scouted or involved in any film project or production.
In August 2021, Bimbo Akintola thanked Iyabo Ojo for giving up everything to support her.
She also prayed for Iyabo Ojo, saying she will always have people to support her.
She wrote: I want to appreciate this amazing woman @iyaboojofespris. We’ve come a long way and I’m so proud of the woman you’ve become.
Thank you for dropping everything to support me, I can’t express how grateful I am. You will always have people to support you IJN…..lots of love baby.
Kemi Filani News recalls that Bimbo Akintola once said that if social media is the criterion of a person’s success, then that person has a huge problem.
The actress made her opinion known during an interview with Sunday Scoop. Bimbo Akintola advised people not to get depressed because of what they see on social media.
“I think people need to work more on themselves. If you judge your life by what’s happening on social media, there’s a huge problem.
It’s called social media for a reason. 90% of things seen on social media are not real. We all have different paths to follow in life. One should learn to judge oneself by one’s own standards and not by the standards of others.
A lot of people have to sit down and rethink their lives because if social media is your criteria for success, then there’s a huge problem,” she said.
Bimbo Akintola, 51, is one of the best, smooth and versatile actors in Nollywood.
