“I can never forget the only thing (Dj Cuppy) said,” Temi began.
“Those first weeks we were dating, she had obviously introduced us and she was there and she was still cultivating a working relationship with you (Mr Eazi).
“And so, she calls me and said ‘so you guys are dating officially and I said, yes, I like him and she said, all I am going to say is that if things don’t work well with you both, I am going to maintain my work relationship with him (Mr Eazi)’ and she was straight up about it.”
Mr Eazi Was Late to His First Meeting with Femi Otedola, Temi’s father
In the same podcast, Mr Eazi spoke about his experience meeting Femi Otedola for the first time and how despite trying to meet up, he was late and went with pink hair. He said this:
“ remember meeting your (Temi) dad, I think my hair was pink or purple and to be honest, I only had tracksuits and we were going somewhere to have dinner, so I remember I got like pants and a shirt and I had this Gucci shoes and I probably never wore them after that day.”
thought it was like a big deal and I think that was one of the few times I respected dress codes in restaurants and not just piss people off because I wanted it to be cool. I think I was there a little bit late and your (Temi) dad mentioned something like that saying I am the superstar.”

When I was actually introduced to him, I told him that I acted throughout my years in school; acting is actually my first passion in life. And he told me that a movie is coming out and that the lead character is a girl of my age, who is a university student.”
She continued: “The storyline is something relatable and relevant to what’s happening today, not only in Nigeria, but all over the world. So, it’s a story that’s close to my heart. I felt I could really bring that character to life. On why she’s kept the creative side of her from the public for so long, she said, “for me, it’s all about timing, so, for me until this movie had come, I don’t think I would have entered into this arena of creative work, but this script is perfect for me. I’m so happy that I waited for this time. With Kunle Afolayan film, it means I am starting at the top. So, I’m just so humbled to have been given this opportunity.
