“I don’t try to be unnecessarily nice or friendly with people” – Actress, Kiekie
Bukunmi Adeaga Ilori, a Nigerian actress and comedian, stated that she doesn’t make an effort to be friends with everyone because it is impossible to win everyone’s approval no matter what one does.
This was something she shared with Taymesan’s Tea With Tay show when she admitted that she isn’t a people person by nature, a fact that many people struggle to accept.
Kiekie stressed the importance of hard work to be successful in her job, as she doesn’t believe in receiving favors.
The mother of one said;
“I don’t believe that things should be handed to me. I believe in owning it. I believe that I am enough. I don’ try to be unnecessarily nice or friendly with people. That is one reality many people are not really open to. No one likes everybody or everything. There are some foods that one does not like. So, why should everybody like one?
I said to myself if I was not given a platform, I would create one myself. As of that time, I had started posting fashion content, and I had 20,000 followers on Instagram.”
According to Kiekie, she was also very naughty as a young child, but aside from that, her father and mother knew she would grow up to be a child of wonders.
“I am the last child. Being the last child comes with a lot of mischief. I was very mischievous as a child. And, that made me to get away with many things. I attended a girls only school, and I stayed in the hostel. Since I was very young, my parents had known that I was going to be a child of wonders. At no point did they try to stop me.”
