What triggered your interest in the make-believe industry?

As fate would have it, I met some people in the movie industry who inspired me wholly. It was then I decided to take my first shot at acting and I haven’t looked back since then. l moved to Lagos after my university education. I went for auditions in Lagos and landed my first role in a movie produced by OJ Productions.
How many movies have you featured in?
I have featured in about over 20movies including Blackmail; Holy City; My Fantasy; Ground Player; Dearest Link, My flavour; and Pregnant hawkers.

That will have to be ‘Shakira’. It was filmed in Ghana and that was the movie that launched my career. Luckily, I had a producer who believed in me.

I am not sure what excites me but I am super excited at being able to do what I love, and getting paid for it.
