How did your acting journey start?
While growing up, I had always dreamt of being on TV so when I went for my first audition in 1998, it further confirmed my desire to be in the field of arts. I played little skit and minor roles until I played first major role in 2000 in the movie The Apple directed by Lancelot Oduwa-Imasuen and produced by Theodore Anyanji. After my first audition in 1998, I didn’t do much because I didn’t know anyone and how to go about anything in the sense that I didn’t know where and what time to get to the audition grounds but I was determined to make it on my own, with or without any help from those who were already there. So, on a fateful day, on my way to school, a producer called me for an audition and I did my first major role and there has been no stopping since then.
