Educational background?

How did you get involved in Acting?
Started in 2006 when I got a role in Life secrets.

Your first role as an actress?
In the soap opera, Life secrets 2006

How many movies have you featured in?
Quite a number, I don't like counting them

What was your first film like?
It was beautiful, quite easy, no intimidation, no fear at all.

What was your experience on your first movie set?
 I go to learn that Acting is a lot of work, requires so much..

Who are the actors you always want to work with?
Muyiwa Ademola, because he encourages me and he assures me I can do it; Odun Adekola because he is not afraid to tell you when he is fascinated by you(like he told me on the set of Mufu Olosha Oko) and that is a very strong encouragement which you seldom get as an upcoming artiste, most people don't want to tell you you are good so other people don't notice you; Femi Adebayo because with him, acting just flows naturally, we worked together on the set of Onika Mesan and he treated me like an equal, not a junior colleague. From him I learned a new definition to the word "Humility". I will forever be grateful to these people for never looking down on me and for making me feel I was doing something meaningful.

What do you learn from your senior colleagues?
HMm! Different things. We learn different things from different people. From observing some people, you know the kind of person you never want to be.

Have you produced any movie?
No. Not yet

Who are your favorite actors and actress in naija?
Let me start by declaring I LOVE Mercy Johnson, her acting is...out of this world; I will always LOVE Omotola Jalade(she was one of those who made this job appealing to me), Funke Akindele is a beautiful and talented actress, to her, acting comes as naturally as breathing; I love watching Toyin Aimakhu, she understands this job so well and when u watch her, u know she understands what she is doing; I Love RMD but then, who doesn't

Your favorite naija movie of all time?
Lagos Girls by Sunny Ali

What else do u do aside acting?

Have you done any English movie?
English Soap opera Yes! Life secrets, Bridges, Private Sector and some others

Tell us one thing you will love to change in nollywood.
I believe everyone should be paid(well paid) for the work they have done. People say the love of money is the root of Evil, let's think what the lack of money can bring out of people.

Who is the lucky guy?
 For now my God is my boyfriend o.....

Words for your fans.
