Omowunmi Dada was born in Lagos and she grew up in the city and attended Ifako International Nursery and Primary School for my primary education. Thereafter, she proceeded to Command Day Secondary School, Oshodi, for her secondary education. She studied Creative Arts at the University of Lagos.
During Omowunmi’s primary school, she was a member of the Yoruba cultural troupe and was one of the best bata dancers at that time. She was artistically inclined and wished to explore that part of her life. Initially, she wanted to study Law when she gained admission into university but couldn’t. Then, she asked herself what’s the next best thing for her generation.
Since Dada artistically inclined, she decided to settle for Creative Arts instead. She attended several auditions and subsequently, she got jobs even outside the school and many people watched her plays. She always tell people that there are no small roles, only small actors and you must be able to prove your mettle all the time.
Omowunmi started her career with stage productions and the first one that she took part in was Moremi Ajasoro, which was directed by Femi Oke. The first movie she featured in was Oya, where she acted alongside Tunji Sotimirin, and other talents. Dada was also in a Fidelis Duker production, Kids Alone and recently starred in Omugwo by Kunle Afolayan
