According to her, glory be to God almighty for His mercies. The journey started in 1998 when Baba Ogungbe came to Muslim Primary School, Idofin Ita Elega, Abeokuta to stage a drama, so he came with his team to eat at my grandma’s restaurant, he noticed the way I was behaving and he said to my grandma that I will be a good actor, my grandma said no that she won’t allow me. So, when Baba was going for the performance, I gently excused myself from my grandma’s restaurant to follow him for the stage play. After that, I was attending their rehearsal at Iberekodo once in a while before I traveled to Liberia. When I came back, I was staying with my sister in Lagos who now Introduced me to NATAP. The reason I ventured into acting was because I love dancing alot and I want people to learn from me, I never knew how to go about it and I felt that if I am acting, they will obviously learn from the characters I play in the film. Today, the rest is history”, she said.
