What are you currently working on?

I am working on a lot of stuffs, businesses and film productions. I am also working on a movie from my stable.

You act with so much passion and conviction, what is your staying power?

I’m going to take that as a compliment. I shouldn’t be doing less because as a true thespian, I’m expected to be that and more. Apart from God’s grace, it’s been staying true to who I am and what I can be. I’m dedicated to what I do.

What would you say shot you to limelight?

My ability, the raw talent and realness. I will always say thank you to Funke Akindele for the opportunity I was given to be me in the movie ‘ Omo Ghetto’

How has motherhood changed your perception about life?

Being a mother is a life changing experience. I don’t know how to state this now but I must say I’m enjoying every bit of been a mum. Motherhood you know is an institution, no mum actually graduates from the institution of motherhood. I love my mum and appreciate her more now. It’s no longer about just me anymore; I have a son to care for. I feel more responsible, more concerned, more security conscious and a whole lot more. I consider my son in all that I do now. I’m learning new skills in mastering being a mum, a career woman and an entrepreneur.

Are you really fulfilled as an actress?

Well, I can say to the glory of God I’m on the ladder to greatness. No one can say they have it all. I love my career and it’s paying my bills.

Why do you take your private life off the public glare?

Private right? It should be kept private, absolutely private.

What do you think about BBNaija?

Though BBNaija has been going on for a while now, but I became a fan from last year’s edition. I can say there is a lot to the show than the immorality people talk about. The show isn’t as bad as people perceive it to be. My opinion is that the organization behind BBNaija is focused on building the talents of young Nigerians . Anyone who uses the platform can become great from there

When you see actresses dress almost nude. How does that make you feel?

I see it as a choice, just like the saying “dress the way you want to be addressed” . I believe in moderate dressing though.

What would you advice celebrities to do in order to keep their marriages?

Keeping one’s home takes a whole lot and above all God has to be the captain of that ship. It is important. We need to really learn how to balance being a wife, husband and all other activities outside our home.


Do you still run your wineries business?

Absolutely. But I moved from my Ikeja shop. Our location will be unleashed soonest.

Is marriage plans coming up soonest?

Watch this space

Do you think sex is overrated?

I can’t categorically say a thing now, because I don’t want to be misconstrued.

If you were to start all over what would you do differently?

I wish I had become a mum earlier, by now I would have been done making babies. I also wish I am more informed , I would have been more famous by now
