Kehinde Bankole is an award winning actress, model, singer, TV host and entertainer. She made her entertainment debut in the 2003 Miss Commonwealth Nigeria beauty contest, then proceeded to the 2004 Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, the melanin actress said it is a deliberate strategy. She said:
“Apart from the fact that I’m a homely person, I am also very careful about the kinds of places I go and the people that I associate with. I have my family name to protect and I wouldn’t want to attract mud to the good name I’ve laboured to build over the years.”
The actress also maintained that fame hasn’t changed anything about her.
“Being in the public glare has not robbed me of anything. I still live like the girl-next-door and I don’t let all the glitz and glamour get to my head. People who know me from way back will tell you that I’m still the same.”
