I began my acting career in 2006 under the tutelage of Ray Eyiwunmi Organisation. Even though my mother never wanted me to become an actress, my father supported me when I made my intention to become an actress known. With time, I was able to convince her that I would do well as an actress. Lasun Ray Eyiwunmi was the first person who believed in me and I remain grateful to him.
While I was with Ray Eyiwunmi Organisation, I learnt that the show must always go on no matter what happens. As an actor, you must be focused and disciplined. Before getting into the industry, I was temperamental but I have since learnt how to be patient and take whatever comes my way. Back then, we were also taught that you must be able to undress anywhere and change into costumes because you can be called to perform anywhere and anytime. You also need to have a good body; that way you can play any role and would not feel bad about undressing when there is a need to do so.
Some of the earliest challenges include sleeping on location for days without good food and other things. Sometimes, we go as far as Akwa Ibom State to shoot, and you know one is not used to their food there.
