Desperate Housewives Africa star – Kehinde Bankole plays a new character in a Lifestyle story as told by contemporary Nigerian jewellery designer – Gbenga Ayo Dada behind Gbenga Artsmith .
The new collection sees Kehinde play the roles of Kenny and Kehinde gracefully . In this jewelry campaign, Kehinde plays out her alter ego hidden within her, away from the klieg lights. Sometimes she is KEHINDE (the woman of queenly disposition) and other times she is KENNY (the girl-next-door.)
According to the accessory brand designer ……“As a highly sought-after thespian of repute, it is only customary that Kehinde Bankole gets to play different characters with individual idiosyncrasies of different degrees.
In her words, “Internalising a role is very intense, as you immerse yourself completely into the very soul of the character you are playing. And after the filming is all over comes the task of literally ‘exorcising’ yourself of the essence of that character. It is always tough! Sometimes remnants of the character you played are left in you.”
