Well, it started in my mind’s eye the very moment i gained admission to study theatre and media arts at Ekpoma. I knew from that moment that i will at some point in my life become an actor.

There are quite a good number of them; late night shoots is a major source of concern considering the fact that I’m a young lady, randy producers/directors who wants to get a pretty up and coming actress laid at all cost , the rumors the gossip columns of newspapers,magazines, and blogs spread.
