Popular actress, Dakore Akande (nee Egbuson) has come out to say that she has returned to acting, and with the full support of her husband. Following her marriage to Olumide Akande (son of billionaire businessman, Harry Akande) in January 2011, there were speculations that she would quit acting. However, she appeared in a new movie, Journey to Self, which was recently shot in Lagos. Her appearance in Journey to Self, was widely seen as a return to acting for the beautiful actress, and mother of one. She has issued a statement, which addresses for the first time, the many speculations about her career. Following is the statement issued by the actress.
I want to use this medium to clear the air. I don’t know why they went ahead to say because I became a wife my career was over. That is a very archaic way of thinking. Women these day and age work. We have responsibilities. But I didn’t say anything because everything one says about me and I react, I won’t have time to do anything with my life. I am an actor but having a family is more important to me, and I am very sure my fans appreciate that. I considered my fans and I said to myself when my daughter is old enough, I would come back to the movie industry. She’s almost one now. I am back to acting and my husband supports me returning to it 100%. If he was not supporting me, I would not be doing it.” – Dakore Egbuson Akande.
