GBERA TV: Can we meet you ma?
AISHA LAWAL: My name is AISHA LAWAL. I’m an Actor, a Producer, an Entertainer, I’m into Master of Ceremonies, I’m a Caterer, and I do Interior decorations. I’m into a lot of things.
GBERA TV: How are you able to do all these things together?
AISHA LAWAL: Because I like money
GBERA TV: Don’t you think everybody likes money?
AISHA LAWAL: Not everybody likes money. There’s this zeal and urge to make money more than the others. Unfortunately, I don’t have a father. The absence of my father is the motivating factor that makes me wants to work and be self-reliant. In that wise I have to work and I don’t know how to beg for money. So, the best thing is to work.
GBERA TV: We are your greatest fans and we know a few things about you. Like your birthday is 31st of May, you studied Law at Lead City University, you are one of the prides of Femi Adebayo’s J-15 Art Academy but we will still like to know more things about you.
AISHA LAWAL: You are right about everything you just said. Basically, my name is AISHA LAWAL. I am a native of Oyo State to be precise. I attended ADEEN International Primary School in Ibadan, and then I proceeded to Federal Girls Government College, Ogbomosho for my secondary school. I did my A-Levels in Ilorin then I came to Lead City for my first degree in LAW, then I did my second degree in Public Administration. Then I dabbled into acting. I started acting on stage. When I was studying Law, I played the lead role in ‘MOREMI’; I did the Yoruba, English and French version.
GBERA TV: (Cuts in) So, you speak French too?
AISHA LAWAL: Not really. I learnt how to speak French for the purpose of that play. Then, I went to J-15 School of Performing Arts, a Femi Adebayo concept where I majored in Acting and script writing. I produced my first movie ‘AMI AGBARA’ in 2011.
GBERA TV: Was ‘AMI AGBARA’ the first movie you acted in?
AISHA LAWAL: No, my first appearance was ‘ADUN MADEKE’ in 2008 and I had no lines. I only walked in the movie and I had to tell them at home that: “that’s me, don’t you know that my dress”
GBERA TV: What was that moment that altered your life?
AISHA LAWAL: Well. When I was in school, we were told to go for vocational courses because of the way graduates complain that there’s no job. One day, the VC of the school came to lecture and he told us that all aspiring grandaunts that do not have certificate any vocational course will not graduate. We had options of tailoring, baking and the likes. My mom is a caterer, she studied Food Science and Technology in school and so, I told myself I’m not going into catering because I already learnt it from her. I’m restless, I can’t sit down behind the machine and work from morning till night, that’s why I didn’t learn tailoring. At that time, I tried acting on stage and I liked it and people like TAIWO IBIKUNLE and the likes told me that I can make money from this. I told myself then that I wasn’t going to make acting my career; it was only for the vocational certificate. At that time, I saw a poster for Femi Adebayo’s School of Art and I bought the form. The school was just starting then, it didn’t even have a building.
GBERA TV: What was your childhood ambition? While growing up, most kids wanted to be medical doctors, pilots, nurses, bankers and the likes. For you, what was that profession you wanted as a child?
AISHA LAWAL: It was all ‘sandalili’ (laughs). A lot of people used to say ‘sandalili’. Well, ‘Standard living’. Anyways, I always wanted to be a lawyer from day one. Even when I was in secondary school and my mom told me she wanted me to be a pharmacist, I insisted I wanted to be a lawyer because I remember going to my brothers class, I was in J.S.S 1 and he was in S.S. 1 and that day the teacher as teaching Physics and he was talking about aeroplane being on a n horizontal level or something. At that time I hadn’t seen a grounded aeroplane, only the ones I see at Ilorin airport, and I was like when I haven’t seen this thing, how will I know it’s on a horizontal level or not. But when it comes to Literature, they are things one can relate with; the community, society, living. So, I told myself I wanted to go to Art and I was going to be a lawyer.
GBERA TV: Can we say the demise of your father propelled your desire to
AISHA LAWAL: My dad wanted me to be an actor. He wanted me to study Theatre Art although my mom strongly kicked against it. When I stated acting, I didn’t even tell my dad because I was in my final year while studying Law and I didn’t want him to feel like I was digressing. Because sincerely, when I started acting I fell from a strong first class; it’s LAW and 100% concentration is needed. I didn’t tell my dad because he would have said If I wanted to go into acting, I could have graduated first so that I don’t do plenty things half way but the opportunity came at that time and I didn’t want to let it go. I thought I wasn’t going to act professionally but I was enjoying myself at that moment and planned to go back to law after that.
GBERA TV: What movie will you say brought you to limelight?
AISHA LAWAL: I think it was ‘IRUGBIN’
GBERA TV: I know you have received a number of awards. Roughly, like how many awards do you have?
AISHA LAWAL: If you want to count the number of voting and non-voting, the plaques I have in my house is not up to Femi Adebayo’s because he has like hundreds but I have like over 20 awards.
GBERA TV: What inspired the movie your movie ‘SHADOWS’?
AISHA LAWAL: When I wanted to shoot ‘SHADOWS’, I told myself that I wanted to shoot a movie that anyone can identify with. I wanted to shoot a movie that not only Yorubas will watch. I don’t like it when people say “you are a Yoruba actor. I don’t watch Yoruba films”. It annoys me when Yorubas especially say this proudly, that they prefer to watch Zee World and the likes. It’s our culture, we ought to embrace it. I wanted to do a multilingual language where the actors will speak French, English, and Yoruba so that everybody will be able to identify with this particular movie; that was what actually made me develop the idea of that movie. The script was re written quite a number of times so that I could choose the language different character will speak in the movie.
GBERA TV: What project are you working on presently?
AISHA LAWAL: I did like three projects December last year. Though, I am supposed to be working on another project presently but because I worked on three projects together last year up until December 28.
GBERA TV: So, which project should we be expecting first?
AISHA LAWAL: I can’t really say because I have like three movies presently that doesn’t have any official trailer yet and when it comes to working title, the working title of the movie might change eventually. So, if I can’t for sure say this is the title because it might later change. I also have one movie that I’m planning big for, bigger than shadows.
GBERA TV: So we should be expecting something big this year.
AISHA LAWAL: Yes, In Shaa Allah.
GBERA TV: Do you have your own clique in the industry?
AISHA LAWAL: Nope, everyone is my clique. I have good working relationships with my Niyi Johnson and Seyi Asekun.
GBERA TV: Who are your mentors; outside and within the industry?
AISHA LAWAL: All my senior colleagues are my mentors. I respect Beyonce a lot, not like a mentor though but someone I derive positive hustling vibes from.
GBERA TV: It is very interesting to know that you are a Master of Ceremonies. How often do you do this?
AISHA LAWAL: I do it very often. I didn’t have any plans of becoming one, I was pushed into it and being an actor also aided it because people will be eager to hear what you have to say being that it is a known face. The first time I did it, it was at a birthday party before I graduated into weddings and the likes and its fun. All you need to do is get jokes, and understand the caliber of the audience to know the types of jokes to crack.
GBERA TV: What do you do when you are not working?
AISHA LAWAL: I read novels and I travel within and outside the country.
GBERA TV: How many countries have you been to? And how many states in Nigeria have you been to?
AISHA LAWAL: (Laughs) I have travelled to a number of countries that I may not be able to list now but the present exchange rate has been affecting that. Within Nigeria, I can say I haven’t been to like only six or seven states in Nigeria.
GBERA TV: What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you?
AISHA LAWAL: When I started acting, I didn’t have a car and I couldn’t afford to take cabs like my friends then, So, I always pack my things in the backpack, use a face cap and glasses whenever I’m going to locations. One day I was going to Ibadan from Oyo, and I boarded a bus opposite Arunah De Plaza hotel, there was no space at the front seat so I had to go to the middle row. Then there were like two rough looking guys, and one was like, “this girl resembles that lady that acts” and they both started arguing: “It’s her” “It’s not her” and one finally said “Look at her well, that one that acts isn’t this pretty. This one doesn’t have long mouth and long neck like the one that acts”, then the other one agreed. I didn’t say anything till I alighted (laughs).
GBERA TV: What is the funniest thing that happened to you recently?
AISHA LAWAL: I was outside the country. I went shopping with a friend and I was tired. I then told my friend that I will pull my shoe while I find comfortable slippers to buy, since no one recognizes us here. As soon as I pulled my shoes, someone just shouted my name; it was a Fan. She was like; “What’s wrong with you? I just knew it, it’s really you. I saw it on Instagram; you even posted a picture this morning with this same dress you are wearing”. I was like “OMG”. I had to explain to her that my legs are paining me.
GBERA TV: Tell us one interesting thing that many people don’t know about you?
AISHA LAWAL: A lot of people do not know that when I am upset with someone I say it immediately and that’s all. It’s now up to the person to decide whether they want to accept or keep malice. Also, I found out that a lot of people find what I say funny and I don’t know why. Sometimes, I just talk and people start laughing.
GBERA TV: What’s the weirdest thing has fan has done for you?
AISHA LAWAL: We were coming from an audition. Myself, Niyi Johnson and Seyi Asekun. We got into BRT and there was no seat so we had to stand and a guy was insisting I take his seat. He was like “Whether you like it or not you must don’t sit down, because you will give me money”. He was supposed to alight at Maryland but he didn’t drop, he kept on insisting that I must give him the money I owe him. I offered him one thousand naira and he refused saying that money is not meant for him because he has bought a lot of my films. He followed us to where we were going, and someone else had to pay him off because I didn’t have up to two thousand naira on me.
GBERA TV: What quote do you live by?
AISHA LAWAL: I live for the moment. A man can be the architect of his life but there’s something called destiny, so, I live for the moment. No one promised anyone tomorrow. I do my best and I leave the rest.
GBERA TV: What do you spend the most on: Clothes, accessories, hair, perfumes, underwear or any other style?
AISHA LAWAL: I will say dresses. I like dresses a lot, I just switched to hair now but previously it used to be dresses.
GBERA TV: You are a new addition to a crayon box, what color will you be and why?
AISHA LAWAL: I will be BLUE, all the way because blue has a way of calming you down. Another reason is that blue is a chameleon, it can come in different shades from sky blue to royal blue to powder blue to sea blue and other shades of blue. If they say the blue blood runs in your veins, that means you have money and I like money.
GBERA TV: Are you single?

GBERA TV: As a role model award winner for the Youth Focus Initiative, what advice do you have for the youths?
AISHA LAWAL: My advice to the youths is that whatever they want they should go for it but first of all, GO TO SCHOOL, even if its pepper you want to end up selling. By the time you go to school, the school will pass through you and there will be a difference in whatever you want to do in life. The difference between you and the next person will be that you are extra ordinary and the other person is just ordinary because they won’t thin the way you think.
