How I got into entertainment
My interest in entertainment started since I was in elementary school. I grew up in a social environment, so there was a strong passion in me that loved entertainment. I remember having participated in many competitions at the time. I said doing plays and comedy shows with Kingsley, popularly known today as Funny Bone in school. Entertainment makes me happy and fulfilled.
I was influenced by many stars, especially in Nollywood; Hilda Dokubor, Kuti Jaiye, Late Mrs. Rachel Oniga, Patience Ozorkwo etc.

I like to perform, present on some online radio stations especially in broken English, I host programs, birthdays, weddings and much more. I’m also a DJ, having learned that from my husband who is also an artist. I love to dance and I also sell organic beauty products and a French tutor. All this makes me happy and I am fulfilled doing what I love the most.

I made a few films, notably with Iroko’s ROKtv. I played in films like ‘Oblele’, ‘Eccentric’, some series with Oreofe Williams, ‘Cry’. I was the makeup artist in exclusive love with Tunji Damola by faith twist.
