According to her, “what I have done is to recreate some of the challenges of humankind in a compelling story and bring talented actors and actresses to realize and interpret the story.

I am new in Nollywood and still desire to make the kind of marks some of the great names like Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola and Stephanie Okereke-Linus have made.

These women and so many others too numerous to mention are doing very incredible jobs and I pray that providence will help me contribute my own quota to Nollywood.

I want to say first, acting has been my talent and I have always made it known anywhere I am given a role.
