Veteran actress, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, was a guest on the first episode of Kemi Adetiba’s Kingwomen Series. Did we love every bit of it? Here are our top 5 quotes from the much inspiring interview.

On confidence

“If you’re good, you don’t need anybody’s approval. That’s the passport to wherever it is you want to go. People would want to know you because it’s your mind that attracts them.”

On ageing

“I’ve accepted every stage of my life the way it comes. Everything that life gives to you, you should use. You shouldn’t worry about your body. The responsibility you owe your body is for it to be fit.”

On charting her own course

“I don’t believe in luck. I believe you make your luck. You create your own path. When you spend your time waiting for somebody to do it for you, you’re wasting time. They have their own lives to lead and live.”

On the need for knowledge

“Knowledge is of the essence. Why do we think we can just get there, not by learning? The greatest evil we have in the world is ignorance.”

On authenticity

“You’ve got to be your authentic self. I am not ashamed of who I am.  The Lord God made us in perfection.  It’s not my job to make anything easy for anybody, but it’s my job to authentic.”
