Nothing can be compared to freedom in Nigeria, Says Bayo Bankole AKA Boy Alinco

By Damola Kola-Dare



Bayo Bankole remains famous for his role as Boy Alinco in Wale Adenuga’s hilarious sitcom, ‘Papa Ajasco and Company. He is currently working on different projects and he made his thoughts on the Nigerian movie industry and relocating to the United States of America, known.

The actor who started acting in the ’90s has featured in many movies that include Eda, Owoblow, Aditu, Ilu America, Yankee Lowo Kan, and 13th Day: Ojo Ketala.



Bankole disclosed that nothing can be compared to the freedom that can be enjoyed in one’s country.

While recalling with nostalgia, his time in Nigeria, he quipped: “I miss my family and friends, I miss the freedom you deserve only in your fatherland and ultimately I miss the unparalleled fun and culture.”

The comic actor who left Nigeria some years ago debunked claims that he regrets being a Nigerian. According to him, he was misconstrued about his love for Nigeria which has never been questioned.

“I can never regret being a Nigerian. I was misquoted. Nigeria is bigger than me and every Nigerian. I have never had any form of regret being a Nigerian,” he disclosed.

Currently, into logistics, entertainment, and movie production, the Nollywood actor noted that he was working for the return of Afroville Radio which was established when he got to the US. He said: “Afroville is a villa where African and Nigerian Arts and Culture reside. It was inspired by the absence of a United Nigeria here in the US, and I hope to use the medium to inspire and build our culture here and teach our children who are missing it.”

The Ebute-Meta born actor believes that characters are akin to a mirage of the personality behind them and thus, he is forever pleased with himself as “Bayo Bankole” and not Boy Alinco.

When pressed on why he exited Wale Adenuga Productions, Bankole made light of the question saying, “Broda, old don pass away, that one na old tori, make we close that chapter.”

Speaking of the lessons he learned from the ghastly Texas auto crash of 2018, he highlighted the importance of insurance saying “Insurance is quite essential and works very well. It can also work in Nigeria for entertainers.”

The thespian who noted that he would have been a lawyer, an activist, or a political analyst disclosed that he had never faced any embarrassment so far in his life. He revealed that acting has greatly helped him and he has no regrets whatsoever.

Assessing the Nigerian movie industry, Bankole, whose desire is to change the world through acting and entertainment said, “It has been one of the mixed fortunes. The good aspect is a return to the cinemas and of course coming of Netflix; the bad is that we have not learned the business of marketing.”
