Prominent Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji has taken his fans down memory lane by reflecting on his humble beginning hours before his birthday.
The actor who lately celebrated his wedding anniversary in a long post on Instagram motivated his fans not to give up on their dreams no matter how tough the journey becomes.
Reflecting on days he missed lectures to pursue his acting ambitions, Lateef said, he sometimes had to borrow money to go to a movie set, and at some point pleaded with friends for clothes to wear as he was not getting paid which resulted in his begging for survival.
He added that when he graduated from the university, he got many rejections, and was ridiculed and bullied for choosing to become an actor.
He stressed that there were times he almost gave up on himself and his career and had to cry endlessly due to the hardship and struggle.
The actor noted that despite the tribulations he endured at the beginning of his career, it did not hinder him from chasing his acting dreams.
