Pretty actress cum producer, Olubukola Kiitan recently posted on social media the picture of herself and fiance’s hand, showing that she’s engaged.


Then, not long after, the rumour mill was agog that the relationship has collapsed, with allegations and counter allegations flying around.

In this rare interview, Kiitan, who has featured in over 50 English and Yoruba movies, shed more lights on what went down. Please enjoy it.

Can you take us back to your childhood days?

I was born into a polygamous home. I was the first child of my mother. I was born in Ado Ekiti, and I attended Union Baptist Nursery and Primary School. Later, I proceeded to Christ Girls School, Ado Ekiti. But I concluded my education in South Africa.

How many movies have you featured in and how many have you produced?

I have lost count of movies that I have featured in, both English and Yoruba. I have produced four movies including Ola (Tomorrow); Right Time, Iwalade, and Iku Ile.

Your movie, Ola is a very rich story. How were you able to come up with such a fantastic storyline?

I got the story from my director, Sharafadeen Olabode, and I really loved it. I told him what I would also like to add and remove, which was done, and it came out a very brilliant job. 

After Ola, what are you working on?

Slow and steady wins the race. Something better than Ola is coming. We are working tirelessly, and trust me it will blow everybody’s mind.

It was reported that you were engaged and later we got to know the engagement was dissolved due to some family and spiritual reasons. Can you please shed some lights on this?

The story out there is mere rumour. All I can say is that, the relationship was not working, so I walked away. My peace of mind matters always.

How were you able to snap out of the trauma that followed?

I already knew I would leave the relationship. It was not sudden to me, so no trauma, just peace of mind.

Any regret so far?

Not at all… I believe God has the best for me, so I won’t rush myself and end up regretting.
