Why Temi Otedola Is Nigeria's Most Talked About Actress by Handsome777(m): 7:11am On Nov 23, 2020
Ever since Kunle Afolayan’s hit movie ‘Citation’ debuted on Netflix, the one star that has quickly gained renown as the newest, and yet most talked-about Nollywood actress is Temi Otedola.

This is because the lovely 24-years-old daughter of billionaire businessman and philanthropist Femi Otedola raised a ruckus playing the Moremi Oluwa, the lead character in Citation.

She set the social media, on fire with positive comments about her performance in the brain burster flick.

One key thing that has kept many talking about Temi’s outing in the film is that in spite of Citation being her debut acting gig, she managed to outshine veterans like Joke Silva, Ibukun Awosika (Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria), Ini Edo, Gabriel Afolayan, Wole Olowomojuore, Seun Kuti, and Toyin Ogundeji.

Temi Otedola masterfully ‘burnt the script’. Once again, like her sister – DJ Cuppy, Temi proved that even the children of the rich and wealthy can be talented too.

A true chip off the old block, Temi like her father – Femi Otedola – who commands the attention of all and sundry wherever he goes, had charmed her way into the hearts of even some movie award platforms within such a very short time.

Having noted that she made a big impression on her acting debut, we must also stress another issue that is causing uproar in some sections of the movie industry. That is, her getting a “Revelation of the Year Award” nomination in the Best of Nollywood (BON) awards 2020.
Some industry players who kick against her nomination argue that Citation just premiered less than a month ago. So, they insist that it would usually take a year after the release to earn a nomination.

Another school of thought insinuate that her father’s influence and popularity may have come into play.

Well, it is not for the Candiidonline team to speculate about how she earned the nomination. We’ll rather let you form your own opinion on the matter.

For now, let’s tell you about the movie -Citation. The story revolves around the experiences of a young and intelligent young lady, Moremi.

Temi Otedola plays Moremi’s character. She takes on the academic establishment when she reported a popular professor who tried to rape her. The film exposes the public to the moral decadence in tertiary institutions.

What happens when a young lady under pressure decides to speak up? Who gets the short end of the stick? These are the main themes Temi and her fellow film stars artfully rendered.

If she has amassed so great a following from her first film, one wonders what is to come. For rising Nollywood actress , Temi Otedola, this really is only the beginning.
