Share with us the story of your incursion into the movie industry?
It's all started in my final year in school during ASUU's indefinite Strike...I travelled and came back but the strike continued..So my mum advised that I should try to learn Fashion Designing to keep me busy since I love Fashion (lol)...The next day I went out in search of a good Tailoring Shop and I got one, getting there the manager of the shop told me the requirements and when I was about leaving, he called me aside and said,,"but why fashion design, your good looking and I know you'll make a good actress" please join the Movie Industry (in his voice)" and I just laughed...later he introduced me to a production house and then the Actors' Guild of Nigeria-AGN, Abuja Chapter and the rest like they say is history.
