He revealed that she deliberately refrains from following him on social media, maintaining a distance from his public persona. Despite his career in acting, Deyemi admitted that he never sought the limelight, viewing fame as a mysterious phenomenon.

Deyemi Okanlawon also remarked that if the circumstances had been different, he might not have quit the corporate sector.

In his own words:

“If look away was a person, that is my baby girl [my wife]. I remember one time I went out with friends and some lady tried to kiss me. Not once has my wife ever questioned me about female fans flirting with me.

“My wife has not been following me on social media for years. She has never followed me on social media.”

He said he never wanted to be an actor, stressing that he struggles to handle fame.

“I don’t understand fame. I have never dreamt of being an actor. If certain things had happened the way I wanted it to happen, I would never have left the cooperate world”

“In 2019, I quit acting. Fame is nothing, impact is everything.”
