1. If you were about to audition in front of your favourite director, how would you describe yourself?

I’m an actor, a scriptwriter and a producer. I’m also an entrepreneur in fashion and skincare. I would describe myself as an easy-going person. I value loyalty, but sometimes people tend to take you for granted. 

2. What are you best known for?

I’m mostly known for being an actress. Some people know me as the girl who talks to much, but the definitely beautiful actress who cries a lot in movies. The narrative is I’m the ‘good, sweet girl’.

3. What’s your favourite social media outlet?

Instagram and WhatsApp.

4. What do you think viewers will like about your unique Nollywood brand, and what is that special “je ne sais quois” you’ll be bringing to the show? 

I think people would like to see who I really am and what I’m about. As much as I post a lot on social media, you can’t really tell what I’m about because I still have a private life. I don’t talk about my private issues out there. People definitely want to know what the deal is in my personal life, especially around my relationship. They can definitely expect the realness from a girl who’s just living her life every day. People can relate to me quite well because of the things I’ve been through.

5. Which brand or person do you think the world is sleeping on in Nollywood or Nigeria’s entertainment scene, and how do you see them eventually getting big?

I don’t really have anyone in mind at the moment.
