Bankole Adeluola

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto Mississauga campus. I was born and raised in Lagos Nigeria. I grew up in an entertainment environment. I lived close to the shrine of the popular afro-beats artiste Fela Anikulapo Kuti. This surrounding exposed me to the world of entertainment and arts. It helped discover my passion for acting. Theatre and broadway acting have always been my passion. At age 7, I played the role of a farmers son in a popular broadway show titled The gods are not to blame.

I have been a part of other broadway shows, such as The Sync-Afrique Experience,where I played the role of a student under the tutelage of the master drummer called Alpha.I was awarded a certificate as the best new actor of the show in 2014. Apart from broadway shows, I have been involved in a lot of promotional videos for various events of student organizations. I will love the opportunity to study theatre and drama, but I currently study Digital Enterprise Management. There is a little pressure from my family to be a successful business man in an IT related field, but my dream is to become a successful actor and I have decided to go through with it. If I don't build my dream, someone will hire me to help build theirs.
