Read complete interview below:
On Growing up, she said;
“Growing up was never easy. There is always high tide and low tide. I am the last Child of my mum and as of then the last child in the family. My parents were, at times, a bit more strict and my elderly ones too. We are Catholics so i grew up in a religious Christian background where they often tell me don’t do this or that!”
“I will say it is a passion; I started with primary school drama. The passion kept pushing me that while seeking University admission, i wanted to study Theatre Art. I have always loved creativity and entertainment.”
Does acting fund your luxurious lifestyle?
“It will be wrong for anyone to solely depend on a particular profession or source of income presently with the unstable economy we have in Nigeria. Like the say, you can’t store your eggs in one basket. But there’s money in acting just keep pushing.”
On her relationship status, she said;
“I am in a situationship oh”. Asked if she can date an actor, she replied; “I can’t think we both will be too busy for each other ”
On sex for role in Nollywood, she said;
“I hear people talk about these matter, funny enough i have never been approached on that. Most directors i know and have worked with are just responsible and strict. Maybe it happened before, here, most directors are professionals besides why on earth will you subject yourself to that point. I can’t give you sex for a role, knowing i am good in my job. Sex should be a two way thing. Something must make us do it.”
On actresses and Sugar Daddies, she said;
“What did you call it? Sugar daddies, any daddy that is sugar should also be delicious to taste! I am just joking oh! To me it’s personal, anyhow anyone can make ends meet as far as it is not deadly and evil to me it’s fine. Sugar daddies or sweet mummie, sugarboy ooh, i careless.”
On how often she has sex, she replied;
“Honestly, I love sex. As long as you can satisfy me very well, we can have it as much as we want, even 5 times daily.”
On how the Nigerian movie industry be improved, she replied:
“The Nigerian movie Industry however leaves much to be desired. A zillion movies are reeled off the industry every single week but only a handful will give you a run for your money. The vast majority of Nigerian movies are poorly directed, poorly edited and even when the plot is great, it is often botched because the actors interpret it poorly. To improve the industry I’ve these few things to say.”
“First, take the time to Edit your videos right. Run re-takes where it is necessary to do so and make sure you get your sound and lighting right. Secondly, you don’t have to use those whack custom sound tracks throughout the movie. It just doesn’t sound hip. Also, stop using one particular person in movies, there are so many and a lot of talented actors out there who most times do better than the everyday faces. All you need is to build them. Most times it is same actor, same locations, same costumes same crew, same everything. It is called a talent and entertainment show, we should be versatile. Lastly, do not allow your script to be so damn predictable. we don’t want to guess where every movie is going and be right ever single time. ”
What lasting solution can you suggest on the unrest happening in Nigeria over Police brutality and corruption?
“This is a revolution, we have woken up. The solution is from the root not the top, how do i mean, discovery movements which the youths have started already. Let all these old politicians go, amend some of our constitution and get the entire police force reformed.”
