Why I Hardly Do House Chores For My Wife’ – Actor, Deyemi Okanlawon Opens Up


Nollywood actor Deyemi Okanlawon has opened up on why he hardly does give his wife a helping hand in the kitchen.

In a recent interview he granted published by Kemi Filani news, revealed that he does not do house chores to support his wife because they have domestic support.

He further revealed that what he enjoying doing at home is bathing his sons when he has the opportunity adding that that the only food you can trust him to cook at home is noodles.

He said;

“I hardly do house chores because we have enough domestic support. But, I enjoy bathing my sons when I can.

However, I can prepare ‘noodles a la carte’. That is about the only food I can cook.”

When he asked to share the toughest role he has ever played in his acting career, the father of two lovely boys recounted,

“So far, there have been three roles I have found almost equally taxing, albeit for different reasons.

The first is acting as ‘Femi Stone’ in Funke Akindele and JJC’s movie, Omo Ghetto: The Saga.

Not only because of the sheer scale of the production and the calibre of actors I was working with but it was the first time I was cast to play such a role and I thank the Scene One production team for providing all the support I needed.

The second is the character, ‘Fogo Bombastic’ in Niyi Akinmolayan’s movie, The Prophetess, where I had to speak Yoruba.

I had never done that before and I also had to eat raw pepper throughout the production.

The third was acting as ‘Bayo Olaoluwa’ in Yewande Zacheus’ movie, The Wait, which was extremely emotional for me because my wife and I had faced the same issues in real life.”
