#2 Career & Highlights
Bisola contested in the 2008 edition of MTN Project Fame .
I was a contestant at MTN Project Fame West Africa in 2008 that was the first edition, Iyanya won, I came 5th position. So it was from that show a lot of people got to like me, “eh! Bisola, you are a fantastic singer at the same time you can act, have you ever tried at it?” A couple of directors worked in that project to show my acting skill in their movies. And from there I started to go for audition and that was how the acting career started.- Bisola
she had auditioned for roles in Africa Magic Original Films, her role in these endeared many to her.
She had been auditioning for Big Brother for about 9 years before she got accepted in 2017. On one of the occasions, Bisola went for an audition with her 9-day-old baby and had her sister look after her in the car.
I remember I said I wanted to be an entertainer and my mum gave me the knock of my life on my head because she wanted me to be a Lawyer, that knock rang in my head for a couple of days but I think I always see myself as an entertainer.
It is something I wanted to do, I enjoy to sing, like I said, I am a singer, I am an actress. Now I am broadcaster, don’t say Jack of all trade! This is what I love to do. It is a talent, I am still working because talent is not enough, hard work has to be put into it, so, I am still working hard every day. I enjoy being on stage, acting, I enjoy being behind the camera which I am acting now. I am enjoying being on radio where no one can see me.

Bisola Aiyeola is a Nigerian-British actress, singer, MC and presenter. Born in 1986
Abisola says she was a spoilt child till age 8 when her then well-off family hit some major hurdles. She had to move to rural Nigeria where she lived with cousins selling make up and she got another shot at the high life when she came fifth in a reality singing competition.
I was born in England but I was brought back to Nigeria as a child. I think for the acting, it was a family trait. When we are having any gathering, we don’t do music to entertain one another, all we do is just make each other laugh by one person mimicking the other.
