Ridwan is a son of veteran Nollywood actor, Ebun Oloyede, popularly called Olaiya Igwe. He talks about the life his father leads off the klieg lights with Gbenga Adeniji
Tell us about yourself.
I am Ridwan Oloyede. I was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, where I completed elementary and primary education until my family moved to Lagos where I completed secondary school education. I later studied Information Technology at the University of Lagos. I live in the United States where I am pursuing a music career in New York.
What are his regrets?
I believe my father regrets not being able to complete his university education at a young age.
There was a time he planned to return to school. Did he eventually realise the dream?
Yes, he did to some extent. But he couldn’t complete it because he was more devoted to his stage craft and his attention and service were always needed in the industry and society. That has kept him on his toes.
