“My Role In Blood Sisters Affected My Mental Health” – Deyemi Okanlawon Reveals
Deyemi Okanlawon, an award-winning actor, has spoken out about how his role in Nigeria's Netflix original series Blood Sisters affected his mental health.
Deyemi Okanlawon portrayed Kola Ademola, an abusive boyfriend who brutalized his victims and produced pictures of them while they were still in pain.
Deyemi Okanlawon revealed on Twitter on Sunday that perfecting his performance in the film was a mentally difficult task.

As Deyemi Okanlawon, I pray to continue to defend victims of discrimination and violence with my life.

In order to truly understand who they are and why they do what they do, I have to temporarily suspend my personal beliefs in order to truly understand who they are.
