Her career seems to be a divine and spiritual one. One thing that’s sure about this lady is her love for her faith. She’s a catholic and always professes her faith regularly without any fear. This is what she has to say in her interview with Potpourri according to Vanguard.

“I saw it as a vision and God made it clear to me that he wanted me to go into acting to save souls. Then, I was just about 13 years old. I never saw myself as a Nollywood person. But I kept seeing myself in a vision with Nollywood stars. Later, I started growing to love acting but people were telling me negative things about actresses and the industry. But I kept hearing God’s voice that I must come and make a difference and lead His children back to him.

“Even when I questioned the voice that I heard that to be an actress you have to sacrifice your body to get roles, it kept telling me I must join the industry, that He would be with me and make me a star. The voice said, “You would use your stardom to the glory of God and win souls for God”.

I’m not surprised at the level I have got to so quickly because it was God who had always been with me. My journey has been smooth because He is with me,”
