How did you get involved in Acting?
Acting for me was a coincidence, everyone around me including my lecturers in school thought I could do it and I got lucky when my friend's house was being used to shoot Okun Ife Yi in 2007, went with my friend to her house in Ibadan and I got lucky to get a nurse role after the person that was supposed to play the role refused to show up.
Your first role as an actress?
My first role was a nurse in Okun ife Yi and it was fun.
How many movies have you featured in?
I have featured in a couple of movies, lost count actually.
What was your first film like?
My first movie was fun unlike some people, I didn't have camera/star fright, I just did my thing and everybody thought I had acted before because they said I acted well, the Encouragement I got made me want to do more movies.
What was your experience on the set of ARUGBA?
ARUGBA's experience was a once in a life time experience, I learnt a lot and I was privileged to meet with professionals, TK called me for the role at the time I least expected and I was very happy to work with him.

I have always wanted to work with all the talented Actors in the industry and I've been able to work with some, I hope to work with others soon enough. I would want to work with every talented actor in the industry.

LMAO! If anyone says I talk too much in movies, then it's their opinion and I can't change it but I do not talk too much, my senior colleagues and directors are even more of the opinion that I have more of reactions, so people have different opinions.
