I once worked in the mortuary - Actress Remi Surutu Reveals


Actress Remi Surutu has had an interesting career. She recently revealed that the first pay check she received was N35 for her role in the movie Sparks.

Speaking in a recent interview, she said she was a cast member in the iconic TV series Village Headmaster and she received N75 as her salary. Not done, Remi also detailed how she left the movie industry to take up a role as a mortician.

Wikipedia defines a mortician as a professional involved in the business of funeral rites. These tasks often entail the embalming and burial or cremation of the dead, as well as the planning and arrangement of the actual funeral ceremony.

“I kicked off my acting career in 1985 with the classic TV series Village Headmaster and Sparks. My first paycheck as an actress was N35 for my role in the movie Sparks. I also earned N75 for my role in Village Headmaster. I then took a break from acting to work as a mortician at the popular funeral service company, Ebony Caskets. I returned to the Nigerian film industry after a few years.”
She further added that the best gift a parent can give a child is education.

“One of the things I am grateful for in my career is longevity and continued relevance. I also think the fact that my parents exposed me to the best of education has made me the woman that I am today. I always tell people that the greatest gift you can give your child is a solid education. If I were illiterate, I am sure we won’t be having this interview because I will be unable to express myself. I know that a lot of people are surprised whenever they discover that I can speak good English. I don’t blame them though, I guess that because I am a Yoruba actress, some feel I may be a dropout or unable to express myself in English.”
