Dakore Akande For Guardian Life – “There has to be more to life than just being an actress. Let it speak for something”

Dakore Akande is the gorgeous cover star for Guardian Lifes newest issue. The actress who came into the old Nollywood scene about 25 years ago, fresh-faced with her signature dreadlocks when she was 19 years old, talks about her new movie, Isoken, transitioning from Nollywood to Hollywood, being a super mom and more.

Read excerpts from her interview and see photos below:

When asked how she balances being a supermom with her career and humanitarian activities, she says:

“It’s intense, it’s really tough. I miss my kids a lot, I have to be away for work, and I need to be on point. I need to be mentally strong to deal with careers that are very much dependent on how people perceive you.” The actress also shares some of her workout tips that keep her on track, which include walking, yoga and pilates.

Above all, Akande would like to be remembered for being “a genuine human being”. She says, “There has to be more to life than just being an actress. Let it speak for something”.

The actress who never finished university would like people to understand that life doesn’t always go as planned. She says, “It’s not always what you set out to do that is your calling, education is super-important but sometimes life gets in the way and that’s ok too as long as you’re applying yourself to whatever you decide to eventually do with a spirit of excellence.”
