Actress Bimbo Ademoye has admitted that she never had high self-esteem as a child.
She talked about her upbringing and how, even in high school, she continued to wet the bed.
She continued by describing her Nollywood debut and revealing that the first salary she received from her maiden film was N12,000.
In an interview with YouTuber Hawa Magaji, she said this and added that the producers had told her that she would be paid six months after the filming, so her father had to manage the N50,000 money.
In her words:
“If I’m in a room with more than 10 people, I start to have an anxiety attack. I think my social anxiety came from having low self-esteem issues growing up, and not being with my parents. I grew up with this thought in my head that nobody wanted to be around me.
“I don’t really like human beings because I feel like they are full of shit based on my experience. Most times I love to be by myself. I’d rather not deal with the hurt that people tend to bring. I’d rather just be on my own and just be around the few people that I’ve given access to me.
“I’m still dealing with that even at this stage. That’s why I’m very close to my dad because [he] was very big on helping me with that. I wet the bed for a long time. I’m talking about SS2 and SS3. My dad laughed it off.
“My first ever acting gig, they told me they were going to pay me N12,500 and they were going to pay me six months after shooting. My dad paid for my shooting budget of N50,000 during the shoot.”
