Odunlade Adekola and Lateef Adedimeji are both great Nollywood actors. Nollywood lovers would understand better when I say they are both great actors. The two actors have featured in different movies and they have with no doubt acted any roles given to them perfectly. But when it comes to who is better between these two successful Yoruba actors, am sure many would argue that Odunlade Adekola is a better actor than Lateef Adedimeji. Odunlade Adekola have proven many times that he’s really at what he does, likewise we wouldn’t deny the fact that Lateef Adedimeji is as good as well.
Lateef Adedimeji born on 1st February 1986 hails from Ogun State. He gained popularity with his first major role in Yewande Adekoya’s 2013 movie titled ‘Kudi Klepto’and since then he has featured in different movies. Lateef is currently a brand ambasador for Airtel and Numatville Megacity. He graduated from Olabisi Onabanjo University, (OOU) where he studied Mass communication.
Odunlade Adekola born 31st December 1978 hails from from Otun Ekiti, Ekiti State. He gained popularity with his lead role in Ishola Durojaye’s movie, “Asiri Gomina Wa”, and since then he has featured in several movies. Odunlade is the CEO of Odunlade Adekola Film Production (OAFP). Odunlade Adekola is a graduate of University of Lagos, (UNILAG) where he studied business administration.
Comparing these two actors might not be that necessary but let’s just take a look at their different roles in movies.
1. Lateef Adedimeji acts passionately than Odunlade Adekola
When it comes to acting, both are passionate in their different roles but I would boldly say that one act more passionately than the other and the person who is more passionate is Lateef Adedimeji. If we’ve seen the two actors act in different movies, then we should know that Lateef is more passionate, Lateef Adedimeji cries in some movie roles that you would be forced to believe if that particular thing is happening to him in real life. Although, Odunlade cries also in movies but Lateef cries better and he’s more passionate than Odunlade.
2. Lateef is Funnier in Comic Roles
When it comes to comedies, Odunlade Adekola has made us laugh countless times especially in his role in the Yoruba movie titled “Opakan” but have you seen Lateef acted in a comedy movies before? Honestly, I think he’s better, Lafeef knows how to act like an imbecile with some funny moves and talks, he also knows how act like an Igbo man with some funny twisting of tone in Igbo accent. Movie lovers can testify to this.
