The entertainment industry is one of the biggest industry in the world. In Nigeria, our Nollywood industry has grown from strength to strength. Our actors are becoming well known across the boarder.
Meet a Nigerian actor with a smile that can melt your heart. She is good at what she does and well appreciated. Today she will be telling us a bit about herself and how she supports people through some charities.
I am the first daughter and second child in a family of eight. I have four brothers and a sister. I am pretty easy going, jovial and loving.
Growing up, I had a dream of becoming a broadcaster. I decided to go into acting believing I would have a greater and easier chance of becoming a broadcaster and my dreams would become a reality. I got into the entertainment industry in 2003 and not long into it, I realised I loved it, and I never looked back since then. Now, my desire is to become a big producer, this is one thing I truly want and I am working hard towards achieving it.
Working to make a movie is hard work, we work day and night to ensure we have a great production.
When I am not working, all I want to do is to relax and enjoy myself, kind of like a reward for my hard work.😃
During my free time, I love to be in my space, read a book or watch a movie. I go out for parties too when I can.
I have a couple of charities which I get involved in and I do my best to create time for each charity as they mean a lot to me.
There's the "PURPLE CAMPAIGN" in which I am a member, it is founded by a friend of mine. Our focus is on supporting widows in the community.
Another charity I am a member of is "SLEEK" (Sweet Ladies Empower, Educate and are Knowledgeable)- Our purpose/mission is to empower the girl child and to support the less privileged and the widows.
There is also "WALK ZEST"- We are a group of people who walk for fitness and every quarter of the year, we support the less privileged.
For those who would love to come into the entertainment industry, come with an open mind. be ready to learn, persevere, know your worth and be confident in yourself. Be ready to apologise but most of all, make sure you are ready and prepared to learn the art well and to dress well. Practice always so you can get better and with God on your side plus your hard work, you will get there.
