"COVID-19 Pandemic Changed My Life Positively"- Actor Kunle Remi Reveals

He said, “COVID-19 changed my life because I had more time to look at myself, reflect and connect with what I carry; to connect with the entertainment side of me. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, I was always up and down filming. But all of a sudden I was stripped of all of that. I had to ask myself what else I could offer. During the lockdown, I realized that all I had was my phone, television and the few people around me that we were being isolated together. I just felt the need to entertain people and exercise my skills as an actor. I did not miss being on set because I enjoyed myself at home.

I am grateful for the rejection that I faced because it motivated me to become the person I am. However, none of the rejections that I got weighed me down, instead, it propelled me to do better and try again.” He said.
