Popular Yoruba actor and well celebrated superstar, Femi Adebayo has expressed his love for being a popular actor featuring mostly in Yoruba movies.

In a chat with Punch, he revealed that he has no regret being addressed as a Yoruba actor because it has exposed him more to the culture and race, knowing fully well that English Actors make more money than Yoruba actors, the actor said:

Given another chance, I would still prefer to come into the industry as a Yoruba actor because it has made me know my culture,”.

Further saying that: “The only difference between an English and Yoruba movie is the language but the reaction as well as interpretation, most times, are the same. All my days in school, I was taught a foreign culture and language. Later, I had the opportunity of learning about my culture, which I would not have learnt if I had started as an English actor. Majority of the people who started with English movies don’t have the opportunity I have had.”
