I Failed JAMB Several Times…Fathia Balogun

Nollywood actress, Fathia Balogun has disclosd that acting was never part of her dream, saying she had wanted to be a broadcaster, even though her father wanted her to be an accountant.

The actress stated that she could not achieve her dream because she could not pass her JAMB exams and as a result of staying at home for so long, her father had to give her the freedom of doing whatever she likes.

She also revealed that she had to give law a trial but could not cope because the extra work needed by law students in school.

Speaking with the Nation newspaper, she said, οΏ½After several attempts with JAMB, because my maths was poor, and coupled with the fact that I was staying too long at home, my father advised that I go on to do whatever pleased me.

“So, I went to study diploma in Law at Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin. But that one too became too wide for me, the reading was getting too much. I left and travelled to the UK. By that time, I had been introduced to acting.

“A brother and family friend introduced me to the late veteran actor, Kokonsari. Along the line, I met the likes of Dele Odule, Toyin Adegbola, the late Ireti Adekola and many others. But I started fully when I returned to Nigeria in 2000.”
