She had to stop attending Army Primary School in Kano State, due to the Hausa Culture, a Mallam, one of her Father’s Police Boss, demanded her hands in marriage, which prompted her Father request for Police job transfer, which led her family to move to Oyo town.

How did the journey of entertainments start?
The journey of entertainment started about 30 years ago, during Oueen Abosede’s Primary and Secondary School days. When she took part in School’s Yoruba stage drama plays, she also was a member of her Church drama group (Christ Apostolic Church) back then.
During her Secondary School days, she had a childhood friend who shared the same passion and usually invited to rehearsals, whenever a theatre group was in town. Against her Fathers wishes, she continued to attend Yoruba theatre drama rehearsals.
Unfortunately for her, she received a lot of beating for her passion, but she would never forget the day she was caught for returning home late from one of such drama rehearsals, which got her dad very upset.
And in the event of being beaten for disrespecting her dad’s wishes always, she received lots of Koboko beating, so much so, she fainted and ended up in an hospital. But that did stop her as she had so much passion for acting. Rather, she decided to be more cautious in order not to get caught again.
After completing her Secondary School, she travelled with which ever drama groups that were available with her childhood friend to perform stage plays, continuously.
Luckily for her she featured in a movie title Osan Gan – gan, some years back. Although she said, the movie should be on YouTube, but a lot of people might find it difficult to recognise her, because she was so skinny and tiny looking back then.
The acting career brought her places, and she also got to meet and watch some of Mount Zion drama rehearsal and got familiar with the group.
The stage and theatre performing passion was short lived, because her Father wanted her to further her education. Although during the period she stopped the worldly acting, as her father would always refer to it, but her father didn’t dispute her being a member of her Church drama group, but he was totally against every other drama or theatre group she joined or worked for.
Also, she developed the interest for talk show, with now stuck to her over acting, when late Kola Olawuyi started a talk show programmed titled Irinkerido Omo Akolawole, Ikan be, of which Dr. Bayoanle and Late Kolawole Olawuyi are both worked at Radio Nigeria, alongside Yinka Ayefele being a back Stage performer. at that time With all the above mentioned, she later decided to grant her Father’s wishes to further her education and proceeded to sacred heart’s Nursing School at Lantoro in Abeokuta, in Ogun State to major in mid-wife Nursing career.
During her nursing school days, she joined a theatre group called Ibile theatre group just to continue to fuel her passion, for both church acting which was in her father’s favour and the worldly acting which her father frowns at. Not excluding out her new passion for talk show entertainment.
After successfully graduating her mid-wife nursing career, she worked in a big hospital in Abeokuta before relocating to Lagos state, to continue goggling between her Nursing career and enterteinmemt passion.
