In a chat with The Punch newspaper's Saturday Beats, Femi Adebayo refuted claims that he would soon be quitting the screen for a career in politics, emphasising that his post is only an appointment and not one he deliberately pursued.


“I am not a politician. It is an appointment and not an elective post. It is a call to serve and the governor believes that I am capable enough to handle the area of arts, culture and tourism of my state and that is why I was appointed, I am not a politician,” he said.

Though he still has his heart set on acting, he has been unable to do so because of his busy schedule.


"I cannot remember the last time I went to a movie location,” he said

The actor added further that he just bagged an endorsement deal with a real estate company, Kayode-Obembe &CO.

“I recently bagged an endorsement deal with Kayode-Obembe &CO and I am glad to be a part of the team. I had several offers but I decided to be a part of this because it is a very reputable company. Before I accepted the offer, I did my investigation and I was very convinced that this company is highly reputable and reliable and the CEO is a pastor. It means that I am on the right path,” he concluded.
