'Marriage and kids have not slowed me down' - Dakore Akande

A few months after giving birth to her second child, actress Dakore Egbuson has returned to acting. She's one of the cast of the play, Hear Word, happening this May. Speaking about how easy it is for her to return to work despite having two young children at home, Dakore said she has a great support system who help her with the kids and that marriage and motherhood hasn't slowed her down
"My mom is with my kids at home. My nanny is also at home. By the Grace of God, I have a great support system. My husband is very understanding. They believe in what I am doing and encourage me to forge ahead, so I can give my all to my job. With balancing marriage, motherhood and work, I prioritize. The home first. And when my husband realizes I am deviating from my duty, I have to push myself back. Family first and once family has been taken care of, I can then fly.
Yes, marriage slows people down if you allow it. I believe a woman can have it all but not at the same time. You have to do things one at a time. Marriage will slow you down but you shouldn't let it stop you" Dakore pictured above with her mum and 2 daughters.

It's a lie. Your husbands family pretty much threatened you to drop your acting career.

Sometimes people don't work for money only. Besides, because her hubby is rich she should sit on her ass 24/7 and depend on him for everything

Hater! Mgbeke... It is news because she is a celeb. Who know you?

Anonymous said...

Stupid LIB sheep! Who says her husband isn't rich? You think all men will stop there wives from doing their job? Its a matter of choice, most women love what they do despite the money. My hubby knows I like working and he allows me to work yet places me on a monthly salary, that might be her case.

How is that your business? Gossip!

Gee said...

Bimpe you are just funny. What do you mean by" her husband is not all that rich "like Caroline Danjuma"? Do you think everyone works for money? Do you think she's acting for the money? Acting is obviously her passion and she does it well. Wake up girl! You sound like a kid and one who will obviously marry for money. Love you Dakore!

What a sad way of thinking!!!!! Real women don't stop aiming for the best just bcs their husbands are rich .

zoe said...

She always look beautiful....i love her girl next door style.

Anonymous said...

So if her husband is not as rich as Caroline Danjumas husband and so what? So because her hubby is rich
She should sit at home and cross her legs?men respect women who have their own source of income no matter how small.

Of course the Akandes aren't that rich anymore. She's seen that and knows she has to work for money.
