Marcy Dolapo Oni Sijuwade Covers TW Magazine’s Special Issue
Nollywood actress, producer and media personality, Marcy Dolapo Oni Sijuwade is the cover star of TW Magazine’s special issue, declaring the year a year of the mother. Marcy Dolapo first came into limelight precisely ten years ago when she became one of the presenters on Studio 53 and as other presenting jobs came her way, it appeared that acting, her first love and original profession, was what she went into.
She, however, began to appear less on the red carpet after she tied the knot with an Ife prince Gbite Sijuwade. As she releases her latest project “Omo Wa,” a short film centered on marriage and motherhood, it became quite clear that not being seen everywhere doesn’t in any way mean not doing, especially in the case of one so talented. She premiered the movie yesterday which saw a lot of movie stars, media personalities and other celebrities around, the likes of Mo Abudu, Osas Ighodaro, Chigurl, Waje, Bez-Idakula and many more. Read excerpts from her interview with TM magazine below: So with motherhood and being married, where has Marcy Dolapo Oni been? There was that whole whirlwind of marriage and being busy. Then I had 2 season of my own show “The Marcy Project” and then I got pregnant and had my son… I’ve been constantly busy, motherhood is busy, I’m married and busy. I’ve been in a state of happening and and being in a new chapter of my life being a mom, going through pregnancy and all.

I don’t think anything could have prepared me. I mean I read a lot and i do my due dilligence. I would research but it was just so eye opening so i found the process of pregnancy so incredible. Creating “Omo Wa”, do all these experience serve as material for your short film? Yes you know what, i’m calling this year “the year of the mother” because it seems my entire projects centre around motherhood… So it definitely has something to do with why i produced a short film that is about pregnancy and motherhood and the fact that this is what women are going through. What would you say different about being a married actor? Do you have a challenge with it? Is it easier? I would say it’s not that much different because he (my husband), was dating that actor. We dated for 4 years so it just kind of continued. It appears that marriage is no longer the desire. Because people worry about marriages, especially today.Photos Credit: Instagram/Marcy Dolapo Oni
