Toyin Abraham is the cover star for Guardian Life‘s newest edition. The award winning Nollywood actress talks depression, her hit movie Alakada Reloaded and more:

On her battle with depression and drugs, she said:

“Depression came as a result of the negativeness around me at the time. Like I said in that interview, I didn’t plan for a broken marriage and after the marriage ended, I was down and I didn’t give myself enough time to heal before jumping into another relationship. I lost touch with things that used to work for me, things were just spiralling out of control, it felt like I was no longer in control of my life and so when a friend introduced me to drugs, I embraced it and tried to find solace with it.”

Abraham didn’t wallow in self-pity for long and rather quickly snatched back her life. “It was like an awakening. I realised I deserve more and that I needed to keep looking at the bigger picture. So, I sought for help, I changed my team and the people around me. I changed some of my friends too and here I am today.  All in all, I thank God for the grace and for a new me.”

On the mixed reviews which Alakada Reloaded got, she said:

“My fans are the best in the world, but we can’t all agree all the time. So, the mixed reactions are normal and honestly expected and this is because we can’t all see something the same way.

When asked to choose between acting and producing, she picks acting saying,

“I will pick acting because acting gives me this rare opportunity of playing different people. I get to be a different person for each role and that is both exciting and fulfilling for me.”

If acting hadn’t come calling, this Ibadan-raised polytechnic graduate would have chosen Marketing for a career. “I like to think my mouth is sugar-coated enough to sell. Again, I am a very friendly person who likes to meet new people and marketing will give me that opportunity.”
