Veteran Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akintola has revealed the secret of her new trim figure. The actress dismissed speculations that her figure is as a result of surgery, attributing it to regular exercise.
She made this known in an interview with Punch. saying, “I do a lot of exercise. I did not do liposuction. If you go to Eko Gym, I am usually there by 5:40am and I work out for hours. But anytime I am shooting a movie, I hardly have time to go to the gym.”
Akintola also spoke on her role in the Ebola-inspired movie where she played Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh in the critically acclaimed movie, 93 Days, calling the role the most emotional of her career. The movie also starred veteran American actor, Danny Glover.
She said on the movie: “The storyline was great but it was a difficult task because we had to act like some people, some of them are not with us any longer. Also, the fact that they did so much to save us during the Ebola crisis made it a tough job. They did not choose to become heroes but when they realised what was happening, that the Ebola virus was in the country, they did not run away.”
“They stood up to the challenge and became heroes and heroines. We must understand that some of them died for us, so we must respect that and honour them. It was a very challenging role for me. I had to portray Dr. Adadevoh’s courage. I had to show that she was a mother to so many people and she had principles by which she lived,” she added.
