Toyin Alausa is an award-winning Nigerian actress, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and mc from Ijebu Ode in Ogun state, southwest Nigeria. She’s the fourth out of six children and the only child of her mother in a polygamous family. She went to Ogun State College of Education where she studied English for only a year before she got pregnant and dropped out of school to take care of her son.
Toyin started her professional acting career as a kid actor and one of her experiences was with the late actor Enebeli Enebuwa, this is what she has to say;
In Portakabin Nine, when we were doing Tales by Moonlight, he said: “Why are you around?” and I said: “I am on holidays.” He then said: “Have you resumed?” and I said: “We haven’t resumed.” So, he said: “Immediately you resume, you go back to school because education is the ultimate. I know you are a fantastic actress, but you still have to go back to school.” So, that was the kind of exposure I had as early as 12 to 15 years of age.
Her teenage years weren’t that rosy, she got pregnant as a teenager and according to her it wasn’t easy to take care of a child as a single parent.
Her first soap operas are Tales by Moonlight, Memorial Hospital, and Treasures, others include Family Ties, Edge of Paradise, and Super Story. She has also been featured in movies such as Executive Crime, Beautiful Faces, Time Bomb, Abuja Connection, and Women in Power.
