Bukola Arugba, a popular actress in Nigeria, has spoken up about the criticisms her father has leveled at her beauty, despite the fact that she is an adult.
Bukola took to Instagram to share her frustration at her father’s continued scolding of her, despite the fact that she is now in her forties.
Damola Olatunji’s London-based ex-wife told her father over FaceTime that he was deeply offended by the length of his daughter’s nails.
She claimed her father had told her that the length of her nails was a flaw that could lead to others being fooled into thinking she is not an Awoyemi.
Dismayed by his words, Bukola Arugba exploded about how her father still governs her even though she is an adult and capable of making her own choices.
Bukola Arugba went on to say that all African parents are equally good.
Black parents are the same as the best parents. In this way, we adore them. Let’s see if your parents still yell at you.

Arugba Bukola reveals her suffering.
Kemi Filani revealed a few days ago that Bukula Arugba’s followers were worried about her after she opened out about the painful side of being an actor.
The estranged wife of actor Damola Olatunji wrote a lengthy essay on her Instagram page in which she described the pain of dealing with the public’s inability to tell the difference between acting and real life.
She claims that when people question her because her actions mirror those in movies, she hits back by asking if her life is a movie.
Bukola claimed that, like any other human being, she experiences the whole range of human emotions. She has her own personal life, just like everyone else does.
The mother of twins explained that her empathy for others’ suffering drives her to make films about it, but critics dismiss her own suffering and label her work as acting.
She went on to say that being a real-life event interpreter is more difficult because when bad things happen to them, others tend to treat it like a movie.
When people mistake your genuine sobs for acting, it hurts like hell to be an actor. Hearing, “I see you do the same thing in movies,” is a really disheartening comment. Could I be living a movie?
As a fellow human being, I share your capacity for joy and sorrow, emotion and reason for laughter. Just like you have a life outside of work, I do as well. I empathize with your daily struggles and use my films to soothe you. But you dismiss mine as “u serious pretense” or “ACTING.” Could I be living a movie?
When I weep, I anticipate being comforted, but instead I am met with a “when you are done acting let us know” kind of response.
Trying to make sense of the world as it actually exists is more difficult. Because people tend to treat real-life occurrences with a movie mentality.
Voicing the sentiments of my fellow thespians who are honest, straightforward, and morally upright.
Even though I’m in my forties, my dad occasionally gives me a reprimand.
