“Early years in Nollywood. Eyes firmly on the goal. Fun fact: I was introduced to Nollywood by Chief Zebrudaya (Chika Okpala) and Pete Eneh (may God continue to rest his soul). They were my classmates in Esute mature university program. They couldn’t believe how much I made them laugh every day in class. They practically dragged me into Nollywood (a story for another day). Before then I was doing radio drama and stage play,” she wrote.
