engaged in a lot of businesses such as selling candies and biscuits.
lawyer because I used to argue a lot, so people advised me to study law.
However, I got admission to the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, to study
banking and finance. Later on, I crossed over to Olabisi Onabanjo
University, Ago Iwoye, where I studied transport and planning
remember that when I was growing up, I was a good dancer, and I also
mimicked people a lot and made them laugh. Then, people complained that I
was too playful, so I have always been a funny girl. I was an activist
in school and I was involved in student unionism. There was a day I had
an argument with another student, and shortly after that, I started
laughing. Seyi Ariyo (She Baby) saw me and she said I would make a good
actress because of the way I easily switched from anger to laughter. The
first production I featured in was a TV series titled, Karaole, which was sponsored by Iyabo Obasanjo.

TV. I am very passionate about acting and I make sure that whatever
movie I produce touches lives and people can learn from it. I consider
it as preaching the gospel in my own way with my movies.
acting, so combining my education with my movie career was quite
challenging. Because I was also running my business, I did not have any
social life. I encountered several other challenges like some production
managers running away after getting paid. Street urchins also harassed
us and during my last production, they beat us up for three days,
despite having collected a huge sum of money from us. Editors are also a
huge problem. In fact, they are more miserable than pirates. Most
times, they just abandon the jobs they are given or spend an
unnecessarily long time doing it.
negative things were said about me, but I am usually not bothered
anymore. In this particular case, I was with my pet dogs and I was
training them. One of them is very aggressive and their trainer advised
me that I should always command them in a stern voice. In that case, I
couldn’t tell my dog to ‘stop being jealous.’ I had to say ‘stop
jealous’ to pass my message across. That video went viral but whenever I
post things about my career, I rarely get views. Anyway, I see it all
Even some people believed that Jesus Christ was arrogant and that’s why
they set him up to be crucified. The people who are close to me know
that I am very humble. People who say I’m arrogant think so because they
are not my close friends. They have also been fed lies about me.
so I don’t depend on what I make from acting. I’m into oil and gas, I
supply cement and I am also an interior decorator.
then so will it be. I really don’t have any specification when it comes
to my ideal man; he could be tall or short. But he must be a
business-oriented man and has to be comfortable. I cannot be in a
relationship with someone that would be dependent on me.
Saidi Balogun, who acted the lead role in my movie, also chose to
celebrate his birthday on the same day I planned to premiere the movie.
At times, we need competition to survive. If there was no other event
that day, my premiere wouldn’t have been known all over the world.

They were all happy with me. But what you need to understand is that we
all have different facial expressions, and there was no malice in the
way she looked at me that day. She is neither angry with me nor does she
have anything against me. The Alaafin has many wives and those two he
came with are my best friends; that’s why they accompanied him to my
movie premiere. If they don’t like me, they wouldn’t have done so. They
even performed at the premiere when they sang Alaafin’s praise.
good, you will always be the center of attraction at everywhere you walk
into. You may not even be beautiful, but if you dress well, people
would admire you. My favourite fashion items are gold chains and wrist
watches. I can wear something sexy but I can never go nude or expose my
