Early Life & Education

One surprising thing about Kunle Remi is that, he was born in Benue State and it’s certain that he didn’t stay long there, because he completed his education in Oyo, Ibadan. How he was linked to Benue State is what people don’t understand, all we know is that he was born there in Gboko.

Growing up in Ibadan was quite interesting for Kunle Remi or would I say very much interesting? I guess that is better because he really enjoyed his stay there even if he didn’t hail from Ibadan.

He linked up with different people and understood the Yoruba tribe more better, maybe this was the same thing that made him fall in love with acting in some Yoruba films.

He started developing the love for acting while he was still in school and this affected his education slightly in the sense that he had to drop out just to focus on acting.

Does that mean Kunle Remi never graduated from the university? Well, we can’t really tell if he ended graduating, all we know is that he dropped out. Get to know about his educational life from the table below.

Kunle Remi’s acting career was somehow smooth for him, he came into the limelight with ease because he understood what he was doing and also knew people too. He took his acting career very seriously after taking first place at the 7th episode of Gulder Ultimate Search in 2010.

Even before that, Kunle Remi loved acting since when he was a kid and was fond of joining any drama group he saw just to showcase his talent. One of the places that helped him was the church where earned a position (Theatre Leader) because of his good works.

After practicing so many acting skills gaining so much experience, he channeled it into the Nollywood industry and currently, almost all Nigerians like him and also his movies. One of my best movies “Anikulapo” where Kunle Remi was featured in still stands on the list of my top 20 best Yoruba films.

I fell in love with that movie because of the high level of entertainment it delivered and especially because Kunle Remi was starred. In fact, when the movie was released newly, I never wanted to watch it not until I heard Kunle was featured. I went straight to Netflix to stream it and guess what? He still delivered as I expected.

This is to show how talented he is in acting and film making. Surely he has acted alongside top actors which boosted his career by adding more game to him, and has been featured in oven 30 movies which I would recommend you to watch.
