Bolanle Ninalowo Movie Career
Bolanle Ninalowo began as a film producer and released “REBIRTH,” but he received little attention due to his lack of experience. Actually, the film raised concerns of HIV and the stigma that people dealing with the disease face. Rebirth debuted in many cities throughout the United States, earning him the title of Nollywood Revelation of the Year.
Ninalowo wanted to move into other companies after the premiere of Rebirth because the film was not a financial hit. However, fortune quickly smiled on him, and he started getting invites to audition for roles in 2014.
Today, he is a prolific Yoruba and English film actor, having appeared in films such as What’s Inside, Ordinary People, Desperate Baby Mama, Barrister Seliat, and the most recent, Picture Perfect, among others.
