WAS ACTING YOUR PASSION?

I have always wanted to be an Actress. Antar laniyan came with Wale Adenuga’s troop to my department to do an episode of papa ajasco. I was opportune but I don’t want to use the word opportunity. I was destined to be there. It was much more than an ordinary thing. It was divine. There was a role which was vacant so I took the role and since then, I have been into acting.

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES YOU HAVE FACED SO FAR IN THE INDUSTRY?

Like every other profession, there are diverse kinds of challenges. The main challenge is just about the hoodlums but we no longer see them as challenge in the industry. We see them as stepping stones and as opportunities to step up. Actually, let me speak for myself. The challenges of hoodlums here and there, I maneuver it. I have my way around it always so it’s not really a challenge anymore.

WHAT IMPACT HAS ACTING HAD IN YOUR LIFE?

A tremendous one. The job I do actually ministers to me. There are so many roles I play and I actually see myself being ministered to. Acting has really had a great impact in my life.
